Has anyone twisted one into from shear power?

Ran three years with a stock input shaft. Finally broke it replaced with a hardened shaft.Makes good insurance.

I have run hardend shafts and stock shafts. If the track got ruted and was tacky I could expect to twist a shaft that night or the next week. This happend every time."with good motors" finally switched to standard and cut this problem to once or twice a year, then got real smart and switched to a brinn and run non IMCA sanctioned tracks.
