    so 3 point is bad if you like doing turns sometimes

    No, the 3 points are great for handling applications. They stiffen up the car front to back and side to side. Some folks stick with 2 points on street only cars to save weight/money. If you've got the money ($100 extra for UMI CM 3 points vs mild tubing), chrome-moly 3 points will be lighter than standard mild tubed 3 points.

    Chrome-Moly steel is stronger than mild steel, which is why manufacturers can use thinner tubing, making it lighter, without sacrificing strength.
