I wouldn't. They're making some hubguards for it but mini's are expensive and good.....if you grind alot, get a demolition or something. Plus female axles aren't great for grinding on.

Female Axles are actually very strong for Grinding. The problem is that there needs to be an Axle bigger than the Bolts, which means smaller Bearings or an overall larger Hub, hence why most Female Axles have 3/8" Bolts instead of 14mm ones. The 3/8" Bolts are much better than a 3/8" Axle. The 14mm Female Bolts that come with, G-Sport Ratchets, Odyssey Antigrams, Shadow BTRs and Tree Rears are really strong.
