I have a couple conections of that type on my hacks. No problems as long as you are using good bolts. Don't know what Jay uses, but I put grade 8 in all mine. A 1/2" grade 8 bolt (fine thread is preferred) in shear is good for about 17000 lbs. The only way you're gonna see those forces are if you hit a wall doing about 70; but you'll have bigger problems to deal with...

Oh, to the earlier poster with a tire question; my front and hack tires are Hedenau K60's.
Just because you're not paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you...
