I'll let the OP say his reason but mine is far too many reports of leaking at the projection welds for the nut. A couple of VFR guys have had the nut fail and leaked a large amount of oil onto the rear tire, others just had leaks. I know of one guy who went down and it wasn't good. Apparently there was a recall some time ago, but some have had leaks since. My only thing then, if you are going to use one, do not tighten it on with the nut (I don't know that they did or didn't). I'm sure there have been happy customers too, but why roll the dice?
