Probably not but there still is an outside chance that it could have contributed to it though. Frame webbing and the rubber mounts allow for a small amount of flexibility and slip when the frame twists - and it will twist to a certain extent regardless of who built the chassis. Most fiberglass bodies will eventually develop some minor cracking especially if the car was assembled before the body fully cured - and that can take from days to months. There are other contributing factors - and the primary one is lack of good reinforcing. We went through this a week or so ago with you with a very informative thread.
