Theres no I.D. on them sean. (you have to mic them, the width of the beam) The Maxi series is about .030 wider then the standard if i remember correctly. i went threw all this before i ordered mine. just call Oliver monday and they will give you the width of both rods.
I think Aluminum would be the right stuff for where your heading to be safer IMO. other spray 500+ with steel rods so i guess its ok, hows many times is the question??? lol

didnt see any weights listed on there site.its a 6.660 length and they only have a part# listed for that length in the n/a series.so its a custom length or schmidt burned me on the oliver billit rod upgrade and put the cheaper n/a rod in.

I hope you didn't get burned but I've heard storys about them burning people before. It is costing me a little more but I buy all of my own stuff and get my local machine shop to do the work. I'm just real lucky that my local shop is a guy that I know and they build alot of high dollar super stockers. I sure hope you didn't get screwed out of $800. I hope you have all of your paper work from them. Keep us informed on what happens, good luck with everything. Michael
