A Greataxe deals 1d12 damage.
Our Greataxe goes from dealing 1d12 damage to 4d6 damage.
With Vital Strike it hits for 8d6 damage?

Yes it will. This is why you see druids with multiple size modifiers doing vita strike bites for more dice than a wizard's fireball.
You should see what happens when a druid wildshaped into a stegosaurus vital strikes while under the effects of strong jaw. That attack also happens to come with a free trip, so you get a good follow-up on it too. I've seen those two hits tally up over 60d6 damage....
