Guess the wheels are the problem. I've been running AKA, Proline, tourex wheel for the past years and never stripped a hex.

Its the wheels bud. They are cheap and flexible. when they get hot, they get way to flexible and allows they hex to turn inside the wheel.

This has happened to me using AKA wheels when its HOT outside. I just let them cool in the shade for a bit and bam..... But have have 2 sets of Duratrax wheels that have the same problem, all happened when its hot outside.
