I always blue loctite 24 hours before I go to track.never has failed. You already know you need to replace yours and it's not cheap.

Exactly at $80 Australian delivered its an expensive learning curve, ill try the loctite thanks its just not some were i would normally put lactate but your right blue is only medium strength so ill give it a try.

+1 if it is a top screw, drill and tap it for a bigger screw, problem solved. If it is a bottom hole, chamfering the chassis might be tough with average tools. The biggest problem I have found with RC aluminum is debris on the screw or in the hole. Always hit your screws that are going into aluminum with a quick shot of motor spray or at least wipe it off. That is also the reason I stopped using LocTite. The build-up on the threads would end up stripping the fine threads after a couple rebuilds.

I guess the sweet spot for the mount is wherever the mesh is perfect. Sweetspot for the screws is tight with blue locktight. Many people are changing out the button head screws for socket heads to get more torque on them.

Tight equals: 1.5 to 2.5 Nm depending on head/grade

Socket heads work good with blue lock tight. Now how about some parts and apparel? Not good marketing and distributionand I am here by the HPI headquarters, virtially not present.

How are people finding the new avid and schelle chassis, have they improved the buggy and are they worth the $$$. the buggy is already pretty awesome so its hard to imagine it better.

Not sure about schelle chassis, but from what I read, the avid chassis is really meant for very high bite.

Ran My Schelle Chassis for the 1st time at MSCS Round 1 and it was pretty sweet. My only issue is I was running a 5.5t and was just to much motor for that size track and surface. I also ran the wing in the lower position and it seemed to help it jump and fly better. think ill go back to my 6.5t for the next round at Dirt Burners.
