Re: m715 rear axles?
I agree with you based on the stats, but I have seen them in action, and was absolutely amazed at the abuse they'll take.
There is a guy up here running them under his M-715, with a swapped in SM465 and FI 350. He welded the front and added hubs, left the rear open (for now). I have seen him abuse that thing beyone belief, and he has had chunks of metal blow through the front cover. No problems though, they just took the cover off and re-welded it. I have seen him repeatedly attack a ledge, ramming it onto the ledge time and time again, and was amazed at how much abuse it took without snapping.
