Default Clutch Disengaging

I am running an OS .28 in my Losi 8 Truggy. My truck made a weird metal claning noise when I was running it. After inspecting the clutch the bolt that goes over the flywheel losened up. Any idea on what would cause this? I even used loctite.

Locktite again and let dey! Make sure your clutch is fresh! Bearings, pads, springs! Check the bell for cracks!

When loctite fails, theres usually oil or grease involved - either prevents loctite from either setting (worst case) or developing full strength. Use something like motor spray to clean everything before applying loctite. A good flywheel wrench is key to holding it so you can really generate some torque when tightening the clutch nut.
