Now I hear this news. Did I screw that bad? Lol
I don't see that you did anything wrong. Did you not want the SCBE? Its 99% the same parts that are on the Troy Lee truck and close to the 2.0 truck with nearly all parts bolting on. If you decided to race it as a truck the parts are east to find. Have fun with it. I like the design, but no class near me.

Race 3 Update: Took 2nd in qualifying. Got rained out for main.
Blew out another wheel.....ran a practice pack with a set of blockades. Burned out the center within 2 laps, ran Holeshots the rest of the day with no issues. I'm convinced it's the blockades. Gonna mount them on a set of DE wheels and see what happens

There is something seriously wrong with what you are doing or a bad part if you are blowing out the centers of wheels? Is there anyone at your club that can take a look over your truck?

It's the back left wheel everytime. I ran AKA chainlinks all day Saturday with no problem. Ran Holshots all day Sunday with no problems(after the Blockades blew another rim out)EVERYTIME I run blockades is tears apart the wheel......I'm not doing anything wrong. The truck is built perfect. Would post pics if I could

The tire on the wheel should not affect this. That is just weird. What wheels are you running? Stock Losi?

Yes, first time it happened was the 2.0 wheels. Next 2 times it was with the 3.0 wheels. It is weird.
I'm gonna give it one more try with DE wheels and see what happens
The track had long left hand sweepers on both ends of the track. The truck is dialed, hits and holds both sweepers at full throttle. I'm thinking this might have something to do with it.
But the truck runs so much better with the blockades...for 2 laps. Thanks for you your concern Casper. Hopefully I get this figured out

Here are some major causes:

- wheel nut too tight
- wheel nut too lose
- wheel bearing shot causing heat
- axle bent causing heat
- hex is not tight around axle and pin
- CVD joint bound, dirty, or unlubed

if only your back left is doing it every time, there's clearly something wrong as this doesn't happen if everything is right.

you also might want to check your diff make the wheels spin in opposite directions when you spin one wheel. make sure your power delivery is correct...

Thanks for the reply. Believe me I went over all of those issues. I replaced bearings, wheel nuts, axle, and put locking hexes and aluminums hubs on. Still doing it.
Not sure if you guys are missing this......but it ONLY happens when running BLOCKADES. Never happens when running any other tires indoor or outdoors.

hmm that just makes no sense. why would it be doing it only on one tire with blockades? the tires should have no impact on ripping the center of the wheel out. UNLESS there's another issue and blockades have the most traction aat your track and it's causing the afflicted wheel to busttt.

OH and i forgot another major cause. make sure your CVD's are functioning correctly, i've had this issue where my CVD was bound, dirty, and dry and my axles were on fire, it melted my wheel hex a tad, if i kept driving it would have busted.

I forgot to mention. It happened once to the front left as well. 3 times to the rear wheel. I do think it's from too much traction on the left hand sweepers.
I believe I have found a chink in the 3.0 chain.

look in side the rim see if anything looks like it's rubbing or getting hitting
on something. it's only happening when he has resistance/weight of
the truck on the ground and only those wheels.
