Are they serrated or do they just have a nylon insert? I prefer serrated over nylon insert because the nylon insert wears out over time.

Nope, both are fairly low grade (Grade 2) chinese made.

The Lunsford kit is the best and only kit. I bought two kits, so I always had backup.

Factory Lite box set up with 4 gear trans, Black/Green springs, and 27.5/25 oil works pretty good for me.

And they are the best wheel nut on the market, as well.. I have been running the forged serrated losi wheel nuts for years. They dig in so tight, you have to be careful to not over tighten the wheel... they can be hard to get off!

....can't get those TLR nuts off because thread is probably wrong. You guys are blasphemers. You might as well get yourselves a 22 3.0 to put those crappy nuts on!

I did try out the suggestion about the Traxxas X rings but TLR Parts? you've gone too far. There's no budget that small.

I bought Lunsford, they are the best. The last two kits did AE, they get the job done. Never used Protek.

Protek just realeased some Titanium turnbuckles that are grade 5 and priced down there, wonder how they will be.

I haven't had any issues with the Protek Ti screws. They are clearly a little softer than the stock steel but as long as you use good tools they are fine. I only use Snap-on or MIP drivers on them and I haven't rounded any and out 4 or 5 sets I've only bent 1 screw.
