First of all, the idea of a .030" in difference in pinion shaft diameter between the HP D35 and HP D30 having less deflection is simply rediculous, especially when you have a big pinion bearing that transfers the load before it even gets to that point.
Second, if your an idiot, and are blowing out HP ring and pinions, over shafts, you dont know how to drive.
Third, the D35 TTB has one more joint than a D30 solid, making it have one more weak link in the setup.
Forth, saying that the D35 -aluminum- housing, that is bolted to a sheet metal TTB arm is stronger than the fairly thick cast steel D30 housing is rediculous.
And finally, I have seen more blown out LP D44's than I have seen blown out HP D30s, the strength between the two axles is negligable, with the benefit being the bigger shafts and hubs, low pinion front axles suck and shouldnt even be considered for an offroad application.
You keep pressing this Lie, but the truth doesnt change. The D30 is every bit as stout as the D35 TTB.
I would like to see all these broken LP44 gearsets.
