Tip of the Week: 12/4/2011 Stay Tight Wheel Nuts

Almost every 1/10-scale RC truck uses wheel nuts with a nylon insert that is supposed to keep the nut from loosening. This simple piece of hardware usually works exceptionally well. If you have a basher or rock crawler that uses reverse a lot, often one of the wheels will get loose. To fix this problem, use a small amount of thread lock on the axle threads as extra security. The real tip here is to switch to Traxxas’ serrated wheel nuts (part no. 1747R). The Traxxas hardware is blue, but Losi offers similar machined nuts in black (LOSB3992) and blue (LOSB3993)
