i also experience this on 2 of my cars.. the 2 back screw loosening by itself.. i thought it because of my front chassis is badly wear esspecially on the bend up area.. but when ur friend new car experience this, then there is something wrong somewhere.. maybe the front plate is not stiff enough and it flex is too much causing the bulkhead screw pop off

im not sure which one u talking about... but if the option FTE parts that need nut to screw with ... well, mine still intact coz i put AE threadlock. im using top carbon plate too n still ok.
i just finished my recent race on a very bumpy, like holes deeper than yer shoe kind of thing... the chassis still ok. nothing broken except one rear shock leaked.imagine all the work the big bore have to endure on bumpy track.

i think we need this



With the action of the shocks rotating on the bottom fixing screw especially on the front right and rear left there was a tendency for the screws to wind themselve out. We have produced left hand threaded screws to alleviate this problem. These screws are available now in packs of 4pcs.

one of Singapore top driver lose his championship lead due to the rear left shock screw unscrewed!! on the last few laps!
what a pity. If not all top 3 is Hongnor X1CR!!!

I'm not sure which screws you mean tabushi.
I haven't had any screws come out ever.
I use locktight on everthing that goes into alloy.
If you mean ones that go into plastic well that's a different story.
I still haven't had any screws come undone.
Must be lucky hey.
Our track is pretty smooth in most places though.
I can guess a rough track would be hard on your buggy though.

JFC, no need to ge the longer screws. your kit should have come with some really small grub screws. they are for the bottom shock screws. if you look at the top of the suspension arm where the screw holes are, you will notice that each hole has a smaller one on top. that's where you put the grub screw in so that the shock screw doesn't come loose.

its not longer screw... its reverse thread. it only happens on the rear left and front right shocks. Hongnor came out with that design... for sure it happens already.
mine ok... coz i super glue it

you might want to go to softer front springs then.

nope... never like the feeling of front softer spring than rear. my style of driving prefer front stiffer than rear. quick response.

ya, here. i have a set of them and they're fantastic. i use them on tracks that have strange setups, like really smooth tracks with huge jumps, or bumpy tracks with no jumps.
