You have to lock the axle. Stick something in between the "ears" of the yoke of the outer axle (closest to the wheel) and let us know what happens when you try to loosen the nut.

I used a pair of vise grips and clamped the axle and then was able to remove the nuts. Mine was on an XTM Xcellerator, but I was able to remove them.. I was starting to worry at first.

I like any track with dirt, on it
XRAY XB9. Rubber tires with foam inside and super glue to keep them on. Cheap, but fast radio, high dollar servos, savox, mostly.
Cheap .21 engine. Modern starter box, finally!
