Reading arcticle on chassis builder,he stated he used Brutis welding rod for tig welding moly. Says it has 4 times strength of regular rod. Makes goldish weld which might be why it cost like gold. Also same stuff used to weld on space shuttle,probaly why its about $50 a pound. But if it makes chassis stronger might be worht it especaily if your ass inside chassis.

If you use or know about it let me know your thoughts on it.

sounds like SUPER-MISSILE as well they are maintenance rods used for joining dissimilar metals together , i have heard of them being used by off-road chassis builders , i doubt it,s a legal filler rod to be used in a drag racing application when working with Moly

Remember that mild steel rod (ER80S-2 I believe) is used because it is a bit flexible. There is a little give in the weld. Too hard of a weld, not enough ductility will allow for cracking in the joints.

U don't want the hardest rod you can get it become brittle and likely to break that's the whole reason in using mild steel filler instead of chrome moly Filler
