Engineered racking does go together faster tho. I like the longevity too.

For my own build I used both. Metal rails for panel attachment and wood for structural attachment. Of course I also hung my panels off my shed roof with dock hinges to allow for seasonal adjustment.

Still: 6 winters. 100 km winds. Still no problem.
There are details and pictures of the structure and assembly here.
