i have heard that some people drill the hole where the screw sits is this true? thanks in advance

"I broke many diff screws until i drill a 2.5mm hole through the right diff hub (nut side). In fact i enlarge the factory hole (near 2.1mm) to a 2.5mm.
Before the life time of the screw was less than 6 runs. Now I didn't break any screw during the 4days of the worldcarpetcup..."
