Looking at that post - It looks like they had them cut the axle for the 
c-clip for the stock hub setup- I may be wrong, but if so then that is going 
to be a weak spot no matter how strong the axle- I went through 3 axles that 
way as well until we changed over to a new setup-
Chuck's setup which I run with the new hubs eliminates that weak point - 
I've run them for 3 years now and no issues what so ever-

Good Luck!
