maybe what he is trying to say is overall flex in the frame, not just one rail of it. while i think we can all agree that a boxed rail would be stronger and less prone to flex than an open c-channel, the cross members may still flex and let the two channels no longer be parallel in side view.

it seems like there are two different situations being discussed here. i don't have any way to prove it, but a triangulated cross member would have to be less prone to flex as a simple square one would, right?
