Don't think I have heard of any failures in the stock axles. Enlighten us on why you are looking for a replacement?

Hello,
Actually there are instances where they have broken.

But with that being said it really depends on the combination and the way in which it is being used.

Thank you,

I stand corrected :)

Very few failures in the stock axles. Enlighten us on why you are looking for a replacement?

I've seen one break first hand. Keep in mind the car in question is repeatedly launched on drag radials.

We had quite a few passes on our drag car on the OEM axles before it let go. We did all of our passes on drag radials. It was only over a period of time that this happened after repeated launches. So the OEM ones will last for a while, but they are not bullet proof.

My apologies. I didn't mean your car, I meant a car on the east coast I know of. But you are correct the car I witnessed had a few hundred 1/4 mile passes before an axle let go.

i believe it was a faulty dealer install but all the bolts completley threaded out and i figure if i am replacing might as well upgrade
