I'd stick with the serrated Schnorr lock washer. Proven method. Others have gone with safety wire for added insurance. I'd prefer to simply make a habit of checking the axle screw torque on a regular basis. For instance, oil change intervals? The problem seems to be more common with the M8 axle screws. M10 screws allow a higher torque spec. of around 60 lb-ft. I believe.

That red loctite requires heat for removal once it cures. 262 is listed under Loctite's site as a permanent threadlocker.

Sounds like a miserable job the next time the CV joints or axles need servicing.
