.....I saw a photo on here where the torque arm was bolted to a mount welded to the swingarm, it was correctly suggested the weld could tear out of the swingarm if the load was to great which would be bad, but what was the benefit supposed to be ?
Hi Daithi,

What tire size are you planning to use ?
