That being said here's my problem, no matter how hard I turn the screw, trust me its on there when i put it on he track, sometimes either one of the front wheels will go flying off during a race. Has anyone else had this happen to them? It has happened to me 4-5 times this year that I know of in the A main and happened this past Sunday. There is nothing worse than knowing you have a decent car out there only to watch a wheel go flying off your car to end your race. Any REAL suggestions on how to fix this problem?

Thanks
I had this problem before. Just go to the local hardware store and get washers that are made to add pressure to the screw. They look like flat washers that have been warped. You can get ones that are a smaller diameter then the stock cone washers. They work great. Are cheap and work like the stock ones, but fit in the recess in the wheel.

305215 was discontinued...that is the spring steel hub for the Pivot Ball front end...

305315 for C-hub front and Pivot/C-hub rear is still current and available according to the Teamxray site...

this makes sense as the pivot ball suspensions seems to have fallen out of favour and the new kits are all C-hub

That would make sense that some things go out of style. C-hubs seems to be the dominant choice of suspension in electric racing.

How vulnerable are the rear hubs to a tweak or any of the medium thickness parts on the car. reason i ask, is because i took a couple of hard hits in the main last night, and it feels like one of the rear hubs has a crack or a slight tweak on the hub. but then again it could just be me.

The biggest I have is 93. I am not sure if bigger than that is possible because the motor gets too low and drops below the chassis. Right now I am running 93/25 and the motor is maybe 1.0mm or less above the chassis bottom.

All my spurs are Kimbrough.

All parts are vunerable to a hard hit and could possibly break if hit hard enough. Place the car on a setup station to check it out.

Are you referring to pitch, or brand of 64p spur gears?

Default Spur Gears!

Try using the Precision Racing Products 134 tooth spur gear. They lower the motor quite a bit which improves handling. Not to mention that they are incredibly strong and are almost impossible to strip. I have been using one for 2 months now and no problems. Sure would like to have a spare just in case.
