Hey!…okay, that’s probably true, just like everything else you said.  Bolt on struts reduce chassis flex, but they also direct the forces to the proper place, the bearing cassettes.  In my tuner experience, they help lift the inside tire as well as drive the outside tire into the track.  In my driving experience, I haven’t a clue, since I’m a bad driver.  :)
