Thats eactly what my buddy who has been riding for like the last fifteen years said too
Is it possible over/under tightening could cause this type of failure? Incorrect bolts? I guess its possible as I am not a techor anything but I didnt wrench them down with gorilla torque just good and tight with loctite

Wow.

I am totally ok with this.

Switch to only 4x4 or 3D disks and you'll have a stronger disk/less chance of that happening again
That sounds like a plan to me thanks for the idea.
