No, they are vastly different. We've explained that several times, you just seem adamant on finding a loophole to use a part that for whatever reason you absolutely want to have.

Take a good look at that thread you posted and read all of it. The SEB rescinded all of the crap about the single axis/heim joint strut bars. Their intent was to make triangulated (ie, 3 distictly separated points on 3 distictinctly separate features ie, 2 towers and a firewall) illegal. Not to make SB's illegal that attach to 2 separate points (ie, 2 strut towers) even if they do technically attach through 3 closely spaced points that can be simplified into a single point (see red dot diagrams above).

The cusco brace is meant to tie together 4 points and prevent fore/aft as well as left/right flexing which is illegal.
