Well grab some more arse.

The GenV casting is clearly a different aluminum alloy as the Gen3 M62 and M90. MUCH tougher.

More details later, but it'* eating up the 'utensils', and fighting me much harder. Twice the work for the same 'gain' on the rough casting.

looks like you need to go straight to a carbide cutter on a air die grinder. Your going to need a steadier hand also

Makes sense with the GenV the more I think about it. With the very close tolerances in the rotor assembly, they can't afford to let the casing flex or change with physical force, rotational mass, or temperature fluctuations.
