MBS lites steel or alloy?

Post by buggley » Mon Apr 23, 2012 9:15 am

are mbs lite hangers all aluminum? i have heard folks bending hangers and though if they are steel i might try to carbon case and old pair and see how much abuse they would take. i dont think i can carbon case aluminum though.

I thought they were the same as normal Matrix trucks but with cut-outs to save weight.
