Default truggy keeps losing wheel

I use to making sure the wheel nut is tight,but I keep losing the clip and pin that holds the hub and wheel on.Is it something I need to check every run or is their a trick that ya'll use to prevent this.I was thinking electrical tape or something like that.It's on a rc8t,don't know if they all the brands use the same design or not.Thanks for any info

There's a set screw in your hub. You need to tighten that when then pin is through

Get a set of locking or knurled wheel nuts and you shouldnt have a wheel fall off again.

on your pins inside the hubs you dremel a flat spot on them right in the middle and when the set screw is in it keeps it from sliding out even if the set screw loosens a bit. check every cleaning or so and it should be fine. i never lost one of those on my rc8t. don't go too deep as this will weaken the pin and then they shear off.

also.. if you put a tiny dab of loctite on each side of the pin, even if the set screw comes loose, that bitch aint sliding out.
