I fitted TTR keyless shafts, steel hubs and his special washer about 2 years ago to my S4 race car. I followed his clear instructions to the letter, particularly the tightening procedure. I have had zero problems despite having a quick car with lots of grunt.
Then, I tried to change to 26R knock on hubs. My 20 ton press wouldn't budge them, so off to the local engineer to use his 50 ton press. He had to make a special tool to do the job and reckoned it would have driven a Mack truck without slipping!
I had no problems with thread damage, but I slightly warped one hub in my removal attempts.
I think it may have been smart to use loctite before assembling as I understand slight heat helps the joint to release. ( any thoughts on this Rohan)

I was the "villain" who introduced the term, from your description of them.
However, as Colin has said (see above) those that TTR supplied him, whilst relying on metal to metal interference, are not as "harsh" and are OK from his experience.
