You can try it on the ice. I have twisted splines on the asphalt even with the chrome moly shafts, so that would be a concern.
That happens when the track breaks loose and spins, then hooks hard, which does happen on the ice also at times.

I gave up on titanium even in the bigger horsepower sleds as it flexes under power and wobbles alot going down the track.
Up to you.

I know that in the bigger classes most people are substituting materials, but there is a rule as i understand that you can only substitute steel for titanium not aluminum. I believe this rule is set in place for structural integrity reasons. I have no experience with big hp sleds but i would be scared to run aluminum on anything fast. Titanium would be stronger and almost as light, i dont see any reason to go beyond that.

Aluminum is lighter than titanium and costs way less. I was just wondering if anybody uses one on a 500-700cc mod or pro stock
