in my defense, the key step in this procedure seems to be machining rather than forging. if you start with 120kg and finish with 10kg, the key focus is not forging.

i have been taken to school. thanks, Robbie.
Lee here's what I've found about the making of the front axle.

The axle was first forged, then turned on a lathe, then the hollow was drilled and after the ends were closed by forging and last bent. According to the above drawings the Bugatti axle does not have any extra metal bellow the spring sockets and does not require milling as shown in the video you sent.
