Default Losi Gold Ti-Nitride Shock Shaft

Has anybody had trouble with the Losi Gold Ti-Nitride shock shaft pulling out of the rod end. I never had this happen until I got the new Threaded Shock with my Adam Drake 1 XXX-NT. I have had two pull loose in wrecks last race, I know local racing is harder on parts that At a big event where the drivers are better.
I have checked the threaded end and it is .015" smaller that the stock silver shock shafts. I think I am going to put the silver ones in the threaded shock bodies so I can finish a race.
Thanks, Rick Harris.

I know alot of the gas guys glue the shock end onto the shaft, helps prevent it from pulling out.

If the shock shaft has been pulled out of the shock end, you should replace with a new shaft and then glue it like Team Roy suggested. The reason for replacing it is because even the first time it gets pulled out, it can round the tips of the threads over and thus will always be easy to get pulled off, even with them being glued on.
