    flex in a shell isn't a bad thing.
    aslong as your shell is solid, i would concentrate on trying to stop your axle twisting itself off.

    i run a rover v8 and my axle bangs so loud under hard acceleration.

    fitting some anti tramp bars this week and possibly a panhard rod in the future.
