Things to check:
1. Are the concave washers complete? (there should be 6)
2. Are they on the right way? (curved part should be facing the locknut)
3. Is the locknut still good? (The nylon part might have stripped)

Anything else that I might have overlooked guys?

Dag-blasted offset hubs and camber!!! UGH!!! I just put some offset hubs on and now I can't get -1 degree camber without the turnbuckle wanting to punch through the dag blasted son of a gun ball cup! AHHH!!!

Okay, so now what brainiacs?

Dremel? Dremel what? I tried cutting the ball cups down, all that does is give me less material to thread the ball cup on with.. If you're talking about dremeling the turnbuckle down... You're CRAZY man!!!

No MAN! Man you know what I'm talking about, dremel the arm, either that or you could dremel the antenna mount(however the hell you spell it) which inturn with give you lower downforce. After that though i found that counteracts body height so you might want to lower you body......SirJitsu my masta, dremel a tad off the end of the hub, just a tiny bit off the corner, don't dare touch that ballcup or I will make anotha trip out there runnin through your tolls.. Man tell Randy I said I think he did great at the Novak race, he's faster than what he thinks.

Dude, I have absolutely no idea what you're talking about! LOL... I don't need no stinking downforce, I need to be able to shorten the camber links or something so I can run these blasted offset hubs with -1 degree camber.

Oh, and I'll tell Randy you said he sucks.

Alright jitslu, the fun is now over, sorry for the runaround, are you saying that your turnbuckle is too long to acheive negative stinking one degrees of camber? or are you saying that when the chassis rolls to whichever side that the ballcup interferes with the hub cause yes this will happen running the lower stock holes on the losi rear tower and the in-line(outer hole) camber link hole on the offset hub. To correct this you will need to dremel a lil portion off the offset hub so that this will not ever ever reve happen again.

I wonder if this means I can't run it with the camber link in the same hole it's currently in, in the shock tower. But I don't want to move it in... The car is soooo hooked up... *cries*

Yeah, we're pretty lucky. I'm going to go to Losi's website and see what the team drivers are running with the offset hubs.

WORD TO YO MUTHA!

Lightening up is nothing but taking weight off the chassis and that's only accomplished by removing material from the chassis which I wouldn't recommend as the stock chassis is quit flexible and if you lighten it by removing too much material from it you could make it too flexible which would cause an abruptly handling chassis that could lead to breaking it.

Jitsu- Depending on what camber locations you run you may need to get shorter links. if you go from all the way long to all the way short there is no way the same link will adjust that much.

take a cut off wheel and your dremel and shorten your turnbuckle a little bit... if you're not comfortable with that... I'm sure your local hobby shop stocks slightly shorter turnbuckles
