What engine are you running? Did you go with a larger diameter axle or just longer? Bigger could mean either one or both, we need details and/or pictures. This usually happens with higher power engines (namely anything motorcycle, snowmobile). Are you running a steel axle, aluminum, chromoly, solid or hollow?
