What are you guys using for axles?

Well about a year and a half ago there was a group buy for gator axles. The first batch that was sent out didn't hold up too good. So my question is which brand or aftermarket company are you supercharged v6's running on the drag strip with? because after 3-4 good launches on my tl they started clicking. i know that the 2003-2007 Accords and 2006 tl share the same axles correct me if im wrong. Thanks for your help guys

i think they are all on stock axles.. correct me if im wrong but gator glenn were the only other alternative, but that didn't turn out well.. I hear he's still trying to work on some axles for us but who knows.

i bought a set from him as well.. but returned it after what happened to Sean and David.

what do you mean? what happened with sean and davids? or what happened with the ones he's "supposed" to be working on?
If it's sean and david's then theres snapped the first day they went to the track with them..

i still have a set of gator axles, Glen wouldn't take them back i don't know why. All i know i will snap them too if i head to the track with them, and the tow bill would be expensive. Well my other idea was to go buy a new set of oem ones and get them cryo treated. What do you guys think?

Cryo won't help with the axels, they just need stronger componets, mainly the inner ball holders. Glenn was supposedly looking into getting these upgraded parts, just have not heard anything in oh, 6 months now.
