    Alu Rush swingarm lateral flex

    Hi there,
    did you, owners of alu rushes, notice any lateral flex on swingarm? I explain better: what i call lateral flex is an oscillation of swingarm noticeable on the top part, exactly where the shock is mounted. It is noticeable especially when pedaling with 44 chainring at a relatively high speed. You can "appreciate" it by inserting a finger between seat tube and the two upeer arms of swingarm, near to the shock mount. I think it's 2-3 millimeters stroke. Is it normal? I was told it is regular for rush.
    For you Carbon Rush owners: is it the same? Cause i'm evaluating the upgrade to Lefty carbon SL by using the Cdale promotion at a reasonable price. I love alu Rush and it would be a great improvement, but is it worth? Or this lateral flex definitively disappeared with carbon rush so eventually it woud be better to upgrade the whole frame?
    Thanks for your suggestions
    BYE
