Yes definitely not the body but they must do something different to the mounts. But you know these days alloys and plastics are so high tech that some plastics are actually tougher than some lightweight metal alloys. I'm sure they over-engineer and stress test these mounts to death and assume the worst case scenario like mounting a 1700mm with half a dozen TC20E-IIIs! But then some marketing fool comes in and says "oh we need to make the body half of the current weight!"
