I think hillzofvalp should step up and figure out how to calculate this. It looks like an easy calc to me and I'm not a Mechanical Engineer. It is his bike and his risk.
By the way, I asked to one of our Mechanical Engineer at work, to calculate how strong my torque arm set can be with a 14mm steel axel.
I now know that the first thing that can break... is the axel
The QT100 i choosed is perfect for the high compression strengh made by the small surface of the edge of the axel against the torque plate.
I am 100% confident about this guy.
Over the hundreds of T-A sold from now , none ever broke or had sign of stress
