About gun-drilled Pro Race axles...
Strange gun-drilled axles were created to reduce rotating weight. Gun-drilling is a process where the core of the axle is removed, leaving a .875" hole thru the entire length of the shaft. Each gun-drilled axle is further lightened by eliminating axle flange material with five 1" diameter holes. A 35-spline gun-drilled axle is 25.6% lighter than a solid 35-spline axle and can be used for non-blown cars weighing under 1,850 lbs. A solid axle shaft is stronger than an equivalent diameter gun-drilled shaft; therefore, when weight is not an issue a gun-drilled axle should not be considered.
Strange Engineering prides itself on supplying the best product for your application. Therefore,
when manufacturing axles it is necessary to manufacture two types of axles; induction hardened S/S & S/T Series Axles and thru-hardened
Pro Race Axles. Every Strange axle is
manufactured by Strange Engineering from superior grade forgings. S/S & S/T axles are produced from
1550 steel that has been modified to Strange Engineering specifications. Pro Race Axles are made
from Hy-Tuf, which is a high nickel Ultra-Strength steel. S/S, S/T and Pro Race axles are all NHRA & IHRA accepted. S/S Axles

Strange S/S axles are designed to meet the demanding bending loads of street use. Strange S/S axles are manufactured by Strange from modified 1550 steel. After extensive research and testing, Strange's R&D department determined that 1550 steel in conjunction with specified percentages of additional elements created the bases for the strongest induction hardened axles available. Each S/S street axle is induction hardened to its optimal hardness with Strange designed tooling. S/S splines are hobbed to the proper involute spline form- before heat treatment. The S/S's giant 1.5635" axle bearing diameter and bearing shoulder radius is precisely machined to accept a special radius ring, which minimizes stress concentrations in the bearing area. Strange provides a billet aluminum brake register to properly locate the center of your disc/drum brake system. Strange does manufacture Ford 9" 28-spline axles (that are stronger than OEM) for low horsepower and lightweight street-rod applications. However, 28-spline S/S axle shafts are significantly (38%) torsionally weaker in comparison to 31-spline S/S axles. So we strongly recommend you upgrade to 31-spline axle shafts for street applications.
S/S Axles are available for 9" 31-spline, as well as limited applications for 9" 28-spline, 9" 33-spline, Mopar 8.75" 30-spline, GM 30 & 33-spline. 5/8" wheel studs available at an additional cost.
Strange S/T Series 35-spline axles are designed to meet the rigorous loads of street and strip use. S/T Series axles are identical to S/S axles in everyway except for the massive 1.50" (35-spline) shaft diameter. S/T axles carry a Strange Engineering three year replacement guarantee against spline breakage.
S/T Axles are available for 9" 35-spline (must use 3.250" carrier) as well as limited applications for Dana 60 and Mopar 8.75". 5/8" wheel studs available at an additional cost.

Strange Pro Race axles are forged from Hy-Tuf alloy steel that was originally developed for highly stressed landing gear in military aircraft. Hy-Tuf was originated in the class of Ultra-Strength alloys. The Hy-Tuf forging is a low carbon, high manganese, high-nickel and high molybdenum steel. Strange Pro racing axles are thru-hardened, which allows for a drag racing shaft with an exceptionally high tensile strength (240,000 PSI) while retaining ductility.
