    I was wondering if any company makes axles that are lighter than stock? If so how much do they run? And how reliable would they be compared to the original axles? I assume lighter axles will give you a slight bit of extra tourqe since those are what the transmission turns and turn your wheels. Any info will be a great help. Thanks a bunch guys and gals.

    not sure about being light, but stronger, yes. If you want to free up the rotational mass then go with light small diameter rims.
