Makes sense, but how many drive plates have you gone throughi have only broken 1 axle in 25 years. i think it is in the designed. I made a "weak link" by using aluminum drive plates. this save the 3rd member and axles. it is way easier, cleaner, faster, cheaper to change a drive plate then a axle. think of it like a fuse/breaker in electrical.
nothing wrong with speedway
I make it part of my prep on the rear end so the get inspected a couple times a year. If worn, it gets replaced.Makes sense, but how many drive plates have you gone through
