    Curious to know if anyone has had any issues with DSS axles? I snapped my passager side while going at approximately 30 mph. But ran them in 3 race events 1/8, 1/4 and 1/2 mile before giving up.

    Correct aftermarket and axles were supposed to be good for up to 2,000 hp.

    Still not sure, are the axles made by DSS, or another aftermarket company named DDS?

    Core charge sucks, but not unreasonable. I can't wait to hear what the cause was.
