My subframe got bent in a crash so i bent it back by leaning it against a tree and kicking it. I was able to get it perfectly straight again, however i put some cracks in the welds of the middle strut (pictured below). more recently, i had to bend it back again, and the middle strut totally gave out and came off. can i ride without the middle strut or is it dangerous or what? what is the purpose of the middle strut?
