Default BJ4WE Slipper Problem

Hi guys, anyone know how to keep the WE slipper tight? I've used thread lock and tightened it up as per the manual and then let it set for a while. I have yet to be able to finish a battery pack without it loosening to the point it won't reach full speed. I back the bolt out about 3/4 to just under a full turn. The bolt is facing foward and the T-nut faces the rear...I tried the other way, but the fron't drive shaft won't fit. Thanks!

Maybe use a new diff nut or take pliers and rough up the threads on the screw a little. Careful not to bend the screw, that will make the slipper inconsistent.

This is the 2nd T-nut I've tried...they both loosened. Haven't tried the thread thing though.

Rod is correct- put a small dent in the threads and you should be good!
