Chromia is used for 1:1 scale Rally rollcages.

How about making chromia motor shafts or something in that nature? Chromia motor cans and pinion gears, really anything that could make something lighter than steel.

Not sure about it around heat and ventalation, but it seems like something more futuristic...

Chromia is a female Transformer from the movie, "Transformers: Revenge of The Fallen" & has nothing to do with Mini-z. Your post is nonsensical.

Think you meant chromoly steel. Is used for roll cage because they are strong and can bend quite a bit before breaking if you don't harden it. Good for absorbing shock.
Chromoly steel weights about the same as any other steel, so you don't get any advantage there. If you harden it, it can be quite strong, then you can reduce the diameter of the shaft to save weight. Better yet is to hollow the inside, but that is almost impossible to machine.

I'd like to note that he edited it, so this is somehow a better version than what it was before.
