Seriously? Well dam...Why not? Is that the anodizing is effectively a "coat" of paint that hardens? And the titanium properties allow a modest amount of give?

Anodizing is not a "coat of paint" - it is an electrolytically created layer of oxide on the surface of a part. The color is from a dye that is incorporated into the oxide layer. However this wikipedia article mentions that anodizing can be done for a number of different metals including Titanium: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anodizing

I think anodizing titanium is just a slightly different process(or same process, different solution) vs aluminum - when anodizing aluminum, the parts are suspended in the solution with titanium.

Mike -

Okay...I was able to purchase this concept. If i shipped it to you...would you be up to working on it to finish the design? I bought for the Flextec Arms...the chassis was a plus but I don't have the skill or contacts to complete the build.


You up to it? If not you got a name of someone you trust?

I wouldn't mind the project, but couldn't take it on at the moment. I need to finish a few other projects 1st.

Check out coloring titanium with heat. There are youtube vids. It gives the titanium a very cool rainbow color and is very easy to do.

Mike - reading my reply to your post I noticed missed a golden opportunity to jab you.

Quote from MonsterMike "I need to finish a few other projects 1st."

My reply should have been a "Yep! And at the top of that list should be Hybrid Revo Diffs." Stating it now it even feels like a missed opportunity.

Oh well....back to my cave.
