Jammin Truggy wheel nut question...
 
i am having a problem with both of my left side wheel nuts backing off within about 5-7 minutes of run time.

bought new nuts,same problem...

my 1st race of 2009 is in less than 2 weeks...any suggestions?

Get yourself a set of the kingheadz wheel nuts, theyre bitchin. They got knurls on the back to keep them from backing off... and a healthy sized flange for a nice flat surface to torque down on... all for like 5 bucks a package, anodized in blue or black

heres one of mine on the pit mat you can see the knurls:

i just went to King Headz site...they only make those nuts for Kyosho...not Ofna(the thread pitch is way different between the 2,i bought a nice bag of those Kyosho nyloc wheel nuts and they dont fit).

loctite would work,but the cure time is too long for between round tire changes/repairs

thought about teflon tape,but i think that would worsen the issue as it is slippery

never had this issue when i ran the Vspec,but now that i have alot more power with my new motor it is becoming a pain in the butt.

just buy Robitronic wheel nuts. they cost few$ and you will never loose a wheel.
I use them on my D8

on truggy i use RMV nuts with bit of weak loctite (purple) i put on last year :)
