when you say shafts are you talking about the cv ends that attach to the axle or chromoly axles?

I Would Think That The Comapnies That Produce Racing Axles For Ricer Drag Cars Should Be Able To Build Custom Axles For Us Since Its Just As Big If Not Bigger Breaking Axles On Fwd When Trying To Hook Up Hi Hp On Drag Slicks In The Front

Looks like most of the spider gear failures are due to housing flex - as the case (housing) flexes it opens the backlash between the spider gears...

the good ol' t-5's in the stangs and fbodies failed a lot due to the case flexing and causing the gears to not contact eachother correctly.

Has anyone taken note of this happening more in frontiers/exterras that do not have the ALDS (the system where the brakes are applied to a spinning wheel to act like a limited slip diff)?

I've been in some deep mud with my foot mashed to get through it, the rear diff locked and it plowerd right through it, spinning all 4 pretty equally from what friends nearby said and the mud flinging...

i just wouldnt see the point of getting the titan axles and all that if it isnt any stronger, im def on board for a 9-inch and titan front diff with gears, if the titan was stronger. and the 9 you would never have to worry about you could blow it up and it would still work. but i think nissan deffinatly slacked with strength in gears, alot of people have or has problems with front or rears. i think something should be done. but never will be.

yeah I did a search to find soem one who made them, but couldn't I talked to the guys who make the rear CV joints for sand cars, there more like u-joints, Sway-a-way might stil be able to make them just they don't deal with the public you need to be a shop.
