We use steel for strength in all the right places, but incorporate aluminum wherever possible in order to save weight and prevent rust.

I heard there is a problem with moving the CPA sensor. Could you explain that to me?
Yes. Moving the CPA sensor is one of the things that the manufacturer says that may make the system unusable. They say it is hard to tell unless you test the system and they cannot promise that the sensor will work if it is moved. It may with adjustments but it is not something the manufacturer is comfortable with saying that it will work 100% of the time.
