Welding axle tubes?

I am installing moser 31 spline axles, cobra diff, moser girdle and FRPP 4.30 gears in my Mach and was curious if anyone had any experience welding axles tubes. How did you weld your tubes??? In car or out of car in a jig?

I'm going to running slicks on the track and have herd a lot of stories of people twisting the axle tubes out of the pumpkin on hard launches.

I've never actually heard that myself but if you plan on welding then, do it in a jig. The heat can warp the tubes. You can try stitching it to keep the heat down, but I would suggest a jig.
