    an easy way to test this would be to drive one wheel on a ramp moderately high (enough to get fairly close to the limits of the suspension), and see if there is any flex in the frame. I suspect there won't be for the above reason (the body being a large integrated roll cage).

    EDIT: obviously this is worth what you paid for it and I am not responsible for any damages
    Maybe. I'll make you know as soon as I figure it out.

    Anyway, I'm not thinking about extreme off road with it, just travel, but I'm curious (worried) about its lack of flexibility.

    Best regards
