unrealistic low factor of safety

Hi everyone,

 

I have a question about a stress simulation that i'm doing for a school project. I am now simulating a steering shaft but the problem is that the results are really unrealistic. I apply a tork to my model of 50 Nm (which I think isn't that much for a quad steering shaft) and my minimum value of safety is far beneath one. I hope some one can see what's wrong with my model because I can't seem to find the solution.
