How's this for an offer . . . if the axle I just bought from E-bay works out, I'll let someone have this one for shipping costs.
Honestly, I have run cars without notching the nut. Never had an issue (auto-x, track and daily). I am not saying you should, but I have and am still alive.

I just got it. Looks great and it's a recently overhauled unit (new boots, clean, etc.). Can't complain for $40.

I'll PM you for an address.
