you have to locktite(blue locktite) the wheel nut, regardless of stock wheels or proline's u have to do the same. there is a tremendous amount of vibration from a nitro truck. i have a revo and a mgt that both when i used stock wheels and the new 23mm hexes i have to do the same, locktite. thats the key, otherwise they vibrate lose and then the axle pin will grind on the wheel until the nut is completely off.

I have a MGT as well. Another option to loctite you can run 2 wheel nuts per wheel.
