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.
