You might try some penetrating lube on the quick release hub from the outside, just wipe off the excess afterward. On the CVD pin, I think there are some rings that go around the outside of the CVD that might help. Other than that, maybe your loctite is old, make sure you give it several hours to set up before running. You may need to use a little red loctite instead of the weaker blue. You may want to grind a small flat spot on the CVD pin, this will give the set screw a flat surface to seat to. If it comes loose it will still not slide past the flat spot.

Just some ideas.

did you take the set screws and the pin out of the posi lock piece?????

the best thing to combat the the pin falling out of the drive shaft, get a losi AD2. I couldnt keep that from happening on my GT2 so i sold it and went back to my losi.

actually u can leave the pin and set screw in there just cut a small piece of shink wrap and cut most of it off only covering the cvd pin not the where the set screw is if u do that it will bind do u have a heat gun, lighter
when u rebuild the cvd u can spray w40 to get the set screw pin out use a little screw driver and lightlly tap it with a hammer
