If Doc doesn't get feedback on his design, then how is he to build a better or alternative product (if he so desires)?

Yeah.. i'm not only recycling battery these tube have a second life
Do you think this is a safe way to hook up your torque arms? I have DP420, but i didnt use it with this application. I have about 50 miles on these torque arms @ 10kw on a 5304 so far. They have not loosened up at all. The hub axle has not spun at all either. The axel is still straight up and down (normally, without the dropouts, my hub axel would spin back to about 2 O'clock. Now it stays at 12 O'clock. I know thats not safe, but i did have about 1500 mile son that setup at 8KW w/o dropouts. stupid, i know.)
I welded a plate to your dropouts so it could be mounted, with hardware, to the bike. i also used a lathe to trim down the thickness of the dropout so my axle bolts could untilize enough threads to fully function. If i didnt lathe down the thickness of the dropout, my axle bolts could only use 1-2 threads. As i ran out of axle threads b/c i added the thick dropouts.
Do you think i need to add DP420?

I'll bet your cutting bits were protesting mightily to turn that hard steel....

Is the bolt for the torque arm going through a pivot in the rear suspension, or is that a hard tail and you drilled a hole through?
