I've ran after market OEM axles and they break even on stock HP levels. Real OEM Honda axles are pretty good and do well but again 400whp with potential street abuse, wheel hop etc. can tear those up as well. Now I spent the $800 dollars on DSS 2.9 axles and those lasted me from 2005 until 2016 when I upgraded to DSS 5.9 axles. The DSS 2.9 were run on my car making 800 plus WHP with 9 second passes. Over that 11 year time period I put about 60,000 miles or more on them and at least 200 plus passes with slicks and never broke.
So do you want to purchase a set of axles that cost more up front but can be used for street use, track use and over all abuse with no problems? Or buy cheap disposable axles that may do ok or not and have the risk of breaking them on the street and playing games.
So I guess it's what value you believe your time and cars time are worth? Honestly what's the point of having a 400whp car if you don't plan on running it hard here and there, especially if you say you can afford any type of axle.
