Infinity floating laterals for wingsuiting Can't Post

Im considering an Infinity rig and would like to try the floating laterals option. How bad would it be for the wingsuit?
My current Wings has cut-in laterals and besides a little distortion I dont think it is a big deal for the suit. OTOH Im afraid the floating laterals could cause extra tension since there are 2 straps spread in an angle.

I have them and haven't had any problems on a P3, Colugo, SBird, Rbird, etc.
