Holy axle!

Just curious if there is a purpose for this hole bored through the front axle on the right side.

So you can slide something through there to hold the axle while you tighten the nut on the other side would be my guess

Great! so not only am i not missing anything there, like a 2 Gauge kodder pin or whatever, i can use it for a mount for a camera, or a whip antennae, or hmmm.. Ahhhh... anti-personnel cannon. It'd be a rad spot for a blue running light.
