It's a flowable epoxy grout. I presume you wish to fill your frame with this?

It has a compressive strength of approximately 4 times that of concrete, but I am not sure how heavy it is.

Sounds interresting though. Basically you'd be driving with a solid frame.

i assume it would be a solid frame which would be extremely strong.. but how does this shit work? is it liquid or like cement kind of shit? how would you be able to evenly fill the frame with this stuff...
it is in the post called Secrets or somethin.. a recent one...

This stuff sounds great, but is it really a feasible alternative. I am definitly interested. Is there anyone that has actually used this stuff successfully, and if so is there an issue with additional weight? :biggrin:

Even if it was a good alternative to steel reinforcement it wouldn't be worth the effort trying to fill your frame with it..

after thinking about it I don't see how that stuff would keep the front frame ears from ripping off since it would be inside the frame... :0 it wold stiffen the frame put some forces on the frame can stiff pull the frame apart..? :dunno:

there are a bunch of types of this shit.. like red, red sg, grey, blue, how do you know which would be the best??? also, who says you gota fill your frame with it, im sure it would be easy and would work just as well and would weigh a lot less if you painted it in a thick coat all over the frame...

and lets face it, Boxing the frame is what gives it its strength in the first place. you're only trying to prevent flex !

if you fill the frame with this you don't have to box the frame.........

but you'll have to figure out how to keep it from pouring out of the frame while it hardens.....
