I tried putting some more pressure on the nuts as I threaded them on the axle and they went on just fine. I figured it would be weird if something produced in Asia didn't have metric threads.

well i have not yet broke mine, but after about 50-60 runs, i have to say that on one hand the car is really great; easy to drive, consistent and fast. But unfortunately, it's quite fragile. We're driving rubber on carpet, the front CVDs bend immediately even with 17T, and my front left bulkhead is terribly bent - can't remember having a real hard crash that would justify that.

I ordererd the ones from precisionrc, hopefully they do their job better than the stock ones.

@HKMODEL: why would somebody design a hopup part for a car that won't fit in the end? Can't imagine that, but I'll post my opinion soon as i installed them.

Its unlikely. IF you damage anything, it will be the nylon band inside your nuts

Hi,
Someone crashed exactly on my front left wheel and the result was only a broken derlin outdrive (I use the TIR spool).
The CVD didn't bent at all,and so did the bulkhead!!!Impresive,I thought.I remember my pro4 CVDs always been bent!
Now,Iam reading your post and I think this is weird.Maybe it's something that you don't find out,or mabe you crash a lot?I don't get it(this kind of problem)
Anyway,really nice car...

Of course I'm not a world class driver and sure, I do crash as anybody else, but I cannot remember having a real hard front-side crash that would justify the bent bulkheads. Gave the car to the mechanic of a factory driver, the car is built cleanly, and he was disappointed too by the fact that the car doesn't seem to be that durable.

Replaced the stock CVDs with TIR ones and they're great... btw, I never had any "durability issues" with my Pro4, even not with the stock CVDs - but i didn't run that much carpet then.

Apart from that, yes indeed it is a great car

nope, it's just tight. Shouldn't be a problem losing your wheel nuts

I use this for my PRO4 and they are very good.(just a little heavy)
No problem even with one-way or spool.
