Drive your T4 on the track during buggy/truggy practice and I guarantee you'll have one mounted on your truck within five minutes.

Are you using them on both the front and rear axles?

I wouldn't recommend using plastic nuts on the rear axles. Too much stress in that application. I've had the steel and aluminum nyloc nuts loosen on occasion. Probably due to the rough outdoor tracks.....

Man, I saw that crash and didn't think it was that hard!! How the heck did the batt get out with the holddown still on?

You guys shoulda seen it.. Shortly after that headon his truck offed the berm and went out in the weeds without catching a marshalls notice. lol, that batt bar must be welded on there.

LOL. I did that to my 4wd a couple weeks ago. And I was leading the 2nd of the triple A's at the time too, #%$^$(_! Jbrow, I found a problem with using the Kimbrough servo saver. We had better traction this weekend and went to dial in some more steering. With the saver in there it won't go full lock to the right. Shaving the servo saver plastic down hsa some interesting results, LOL. I'm picking up another saver and I'll play with it some more.

Yes, the front axles threads don't match what you might think.... My local track/hobbyshop told me to use the nylon nuts cause they will give..I've proven this recently...twice actually. it popped off after a big hit on a pipe/track, nut & bearing popped out..but nothing broke. The nylon nuts are cheaper then new bearings and wheels. lol.
