Also, in rallying, you break axles and finding spare sets of DSS axles will become increasingly difficult. For the average high HP street car, DSS axles on WRX hubs would be more than adequate. Really, these axles are ideal for someone who has already invested in a brake kit for R160 hubs but also wants to do a 6MT swap with an R180 rear diff.
ok, I get it, that makes sense.
