Default Wheel hex nut (adapter) question

Hi Guys,

I cleaned up my Superten thoroughly, relube it and everything. Now when I took off the aluminum wheel adapter hex nut (whatever you want to call it) it doesnt have place for pins unlike the plastic ones...you know it supposed to have an + so the pin on the drive axle will fit (I dont know if you guys know what I'm talikng about) I saw the drive axle (where you put the wheels and the dogbone on the other side and it has no holes for the pin. I fry the wheel adapter off because it stick to the drive axle like there was a pin or something. Now when I put it back its loose.

So if I put the wheels in there without screwing it it will just spin freely and but the dogbone and gears inside wont because the wheel adapter together with the wheels just spinning on the drive axle...I have to tighten the screw real tight to make it work.

Unlike those adapters with pins, even if you dont screw the wheel it will still work.

You know what I'm saying? Now is this normal? How do I deal with this? Because I'm used to not over tighten the nut so it wont creat much drag but I cant do this to my superten...

Thanks in advance

I'm not sure about the SuperTen but the Spiders use to work on a tapered finish. It was a Kyosho speciality!! Just insert a small allen key into the drive cup slot coming out of the gearbox (with driveshaft etc installed). This will stop on whole assembly rotating and you will be able to tighten the wheel nut. Do not get grease onto the taper and after locking down first time the hex will stay with the axle.... hopefully!!!

zxt: there's no alternative to that. I guess if you use a hop up or something, it will have one. Anyway no one seems to have a prob with it. Just tighten for it to work.
