He's not talking about the Axle nut. 200 ft/lbs on the bearing retainer bolts might very well shear them off!

Whoa! Ask a friend of mine when his Shelby Series One came back from Shelby after the supercharger upgrade what overtorqued lug nuts look like...he doesn't know, they sheered off doing about 50mph. Went right back to Shelby to get fixed.

A 12mm lug is around 90ft lbs.
