A welded torque arm inside the drop out sounds good. Won't you have to remove axle wiring to do that?

well, i'm using one on the drive side, but there's not material beneath the slot to make a clamping mechanism, and as you see there's plenty of wiggle in the slot:
on my 'pinching' torque arm, i was hoping the vertical force of clamping the arm to the bike would draw the rear side of the axle slot in just enough to remove the gap, and if the arm angle was more obtuse and the corner stiff enough, it would have to I'd think, albeit not with the same force of a lateral clamp.
if i just added a pinching mechanism under the slot, the axle and 'arm' would just wiggle back and forth in a radius below the single bolt, which is all there really is to mount secure to.. but the worm clamp does fix the arm firmly to the frame, and at least the axle shouldn't fall out!
alright, this is what i mean:
but i certainly screwed the pooch when i made the hole too big...

Yesterday was a wet ride home. I was really careful this morning noticing some ice crystals glinting back at me on the paved trail

correction. both side covers have inside lips. i wonder if the water is coming in thru the wire hole...
