That's right, the normal kit part has a recess for the screw head; this one clearly has the screw head sticking out. New part?

The pics made me realize something else: my SE kit comes with different "lightened" rear wing pylons. The TKI edition pylons have cut-outs and (I think) aluminum cross-braces, whereas the SE has reinforced pylons (no cut-outs) and plastic hex braces.

I can't tell you what the SE kit really has, but the TKI didn't come with AL wing mount braces or radio tray mounts either, they are option parts. On the C-Hub screws, it could have been falling out, LOL! Its happened before.

Haha, you're right. Guess someone might've forgotten to threadlock their screws.

Actually, I have another question: does anyone use the included grey spacers under their center diff mounts with the stock spur? The manual says to use them if running the optional 48T spur, but I noticed that without any spacers, the stock spur protrudes barely 1/10 of a mm below the chassis. Not much, but wondering if that's enough to cause problems?
