I've got a similar set up. Rs pro oriented with posts on the outside, close to the spur. Spektrum rx mounted on it's side, perpendicular to the rs pro. Wires tugged under the shaft. Motor solder tabs on the inside.No fan though

Just curious, how many of you apply threadlock to your wheel nuts?

At my track, it seems like this it is a common problem that the nut will back off, and next you know, the rango is now a three wheeler. Hence, the guys often threadlocked their wheel nuts before practices and runs.

Do you guys have a better solution than this?

I use Kyoshos serrated wheel nuts (they are steel). I think Tresrey has a set in alu. Never have a problem with the nuts coming lose since I started using the serrated wheel nuts!

Traxxas also makes serrated wheel nuts. They're a bit cheaper and you can probably find them at your LHS. I use their blue ones on my K cars.

The durango wheel nuts are serrated. If these fall off you didnt have it tight enough to begin with possibly?

That's what the guys have been using.
What they're telling me, is from the onset, it is fine. But with greater wear on the rims, they tend to back off.....

I use them on my Losi 22, Losi SCTE, and my daughters 2wd Slash and i have yet to have one fall off. That is kind of odd but then again i have saw some Durangos lose wheels lately

With the Durango wheel nut, the nylon seems to wear out rather quickly and allows them to back off. I replace mine every few months or so. As others have suggested you can use other manufacture's.

Once one of them has fallen off, it needs to be ditched. I learned this the "hard way" even though I tightened them in "meathead mode".

I have my fan mounted to my body right under the vent with a couple of zip ties. The wire is long enough for me to plug it in/out before mounting/dismounting the body. You can only see the zip ties (still kinda ghetto looking). Since it gets fresh air from the vent the cool air keeps the esc a lot cooler now....Ghetto, but works and beats cooking a $200 rs pro!

Gonna bring those ghetto cars to the track this weekend? I may make it for the first time in a while.

I'm selling my Dex410r, race three times and the class isn't big enough in my area.
