the only reason serrated wheel nuts will loosen is;
  • They were never tighten in the first place, and/or
  • The hex in the plastic wheel is flogged out and due to acceleration & braking it will slowly work the serrated wheel nut loose...

...Or the axle is fractionaly undersize so although the serrated sections bite into the wheel, the thread isn't that tight between the wheel nut and axle which allows vibration to effect it.

Assuming the axle bit is the same for all versions, my bd5 version hasn't had any problem for the last 4 months of use. Which includes chassis snapping crashes XD
