Default Billet metal specialist thread (we argue cause we are dense)

I think you're looking for upgraded rods, not so much billet. Two different types of rods. Carrillos are a forging that is machined.

TTT, lots of built motor part outs here.

Just because I have a low post count doesnít mean I donít know a thing or two. I come from an engineering background where words mean everything. Billet is way different than aftermarket in terms of product quantity.

So do I, I'm a metallurgist, and you meant "quality."

Discussion belongs in some other section, stop crapping up peoples' ads.

I meant quantity. There are more forged rods out there vs billet rods in terms of different manufacturers products.

The OP didn't ask for an education. Do you have a set of billet rods for sale? Or not?

Maybe you could come up with a bigger signature section in your spare time, with lots of definitions and help for the unknowing masses.

I remember when daddy let me have a keyboard.

Saw a guy with one post and was trying to be helpful.

OP, good luck with your search.

Lovely.

What kind of weird do you have to be, to hop in the for sale section and lecture people?

Or what kind of God Complex?

He jumped into 3 threads alone in the classifieds to spread his wisdom and knowledge to all. WTF

Every single topic has been discussed in the appropriate sections like 200 times already.

I won't argue that you've been in the DMax game longer than me. I know who you are Mat, and I have a lot of respect for you. I just found it odd that you would jump on a guy for posting correct info is all.

Boy, am I ever glad I didnt hit "enter" on the post I wrote this morning before work quoting Mat's. Hilarity like this would've ensued.

Good going, Josh! We havent had a good argument here in a long time. Gracias for the chuckles.
