7018 takes longer to burn. I build boat docks for a living we only use 7018s for huge I beams or when someones tractor bucket cracks. There is no sense in using a 7018 for little stuff like this. Im not going to argue anymore the guy got his truck done and it looks great. I was just giving a tip to him maybe to help him out next time.

I built my truck with 7018. 6011 makes WAY too big of a puddle for welding tabs etc.

If you move faster you don't get good enough penetration.

7018 is perfectly fine rod to use for the type of welding required on a truck.
