How long ago did you send a email? They usually respond in under a day. Keep in mind they aren't a huge company with tons on workers

You shouldn't have to put a drop of glue on the rear hexes to keep the pin from falling out. This is the reason some switch out the rear hexes in my area.

My pins fit tight, never used anything on them and never had one fall out

The wheels do a great job of holding the pin in place. Seems as the buggy was designed to be used with wheels on it. So why do you guys keep taking them off?

Keeping your tires on the car and not in a plastic bag between races is a good way to shorten their useful life. The tires dry out and don't grip as well if you don't keep them fresh.

That being said, I just put a little blue loctite on the drive pins and they stay in place for me.

A small dab of shoegoo on the end of the wheel pin. It will stay in place, but as soon as its time to remove the pin, it will push out easily. Usually the shoegoo stays in the hole/hex when you remove the pin, and when you install the pin again, it will press back in with just a little resistance, enough to hold it in place.

Locktite would work too, but be careful. If you use too much it might be really difficult to remove the pin. If you use way too much, the Locktite could get into the outer hub bearing.

I'm pretty happy, we just got the first layout built at the brand new indoor track that is opening in my area. I got to run about a half a battery through my B5 rear motor car. The dirt was compacted, but not watered yet, so it was pretty slick. I threw some JC Goosebumps on the car, and it was actually drivable. The clay compound scrubs up front didn't work very well, even still, with only a blinky 17.5 the car was the fastest around the track. Hopefully my new D413 will be turning its wheels in anger very soon.

Is this a serious question.... LOL

Most in our area usually take them off to scrub and clean them with simple green before the next round or to put new set of tires on or different tread pattern... LOL

I use a small dab of shoegoo on the pin and has been working great since last September.
