What parts are the screws coming out of? Also, how old are they? I have both a D8 and D8T as well as a LSP and haven't had issue with screws coming out.

Generally screws are going to stay in the plastic parts without any help. If they won't, that part is probably stripped out or nearly so.

As mentioned you can put a drop of CA, or some other alternatives were listed (CA is the only one I have used) but the RIGHT thing to do is replace the plastic part that the screw won't stay in... and when you do, be careful not to over-tighten the screw and strip the part.

buy any chance are you having this problem with the left rear and right front lower shock screw? if so, x-ray solved this problem with reverse threaded screws for thoes two points. i'm going to try them in my 2.0, even though they are metric. when i had my 808, they never once backed out. no ca required...

I personally like the Kyosho shock PINS with the set screw to secure them. quick and easy to change, no reverse threads to confuse you... I did that on my old Jammin as a mod. I haven't looked into doing it on the Xray truck YET.
