Ok, so you say that by being centered you mean you hold the body by structure so that it won't buckle. I'd kind of expect that the structure would be fairly rigid, so you'd be easily toppled, so you wouldn't stick to the ground very well.

Wouldn't the first point be more along the lines of bracing, even if using structure, and thus a no no IS wise?

Do you mean the non-buckling of joints?

sorry, i meant the line about being not centered.
Ok, yes I think a bracing structure would be unstable against forces other directions. I think that that bracing and stability don't match very well. But If I understand Chris correctly, he can do it.
