    That's completely the wrong way round LOL

    The torque from the diff to the wheel under full load drive conditions is huge compared to the torque from the wheel to the diff end under braking.

    You only have to compare the acceleration time under full engine load to the deceleration time achieved by full handbrake application to get an idea of the order of magnitude of difference between the two

    I think if you had to lock the brakes on in an emergency stop, a 1.1 ton car travelling in excess of 30 mph trying to turn a large radius wheel against a stopped tube, the torsional stress would be tremendous. Whereas hard acceleration against a wheel that is free to turn....

    You can think that if you want but you'd still be wrong LOL.

    If your drive shaft is up to handling the torque output of a V8, multiplied by the gearbox and again multiplied by the diff, you need not be afraid your inboards will destroy them.... weight transfer alone will cause a significant difference in the max torque your wheel will be able to put on the shaft in acceleration versus deceleration.
    Just my opinion afcourse,
    BR, Theo
