    if you can get to lhs then go to a hardware store and ask for the 4mm locknuts just to get by

    actually... the slash, pede, bandit, and possibly others use the same 4mm nut... and yes the nylon ones from hardware store will work as well im sure.

    Exactly... forgot about that as well.

    This way, you will hopefully not lose anymore, or at least fewer...

    Don't buy the flanged lock nuts. Buy some non-flanged lock nuts and install them backwards. If you do that, thread locker will not be necessary and the wheels will actually stay on the vehicle.

    sorry... i bought flanged ones because that is all my LHS had!

    I've been using the locktite without issue, however.

    Actually the newest flange locknuts from Traxxas have a fishscale pattern to them that helps keep the nut from backing out as easily. IIRC the plated steel and blue ano'd aluminum ones are both made that way not, I'd have to double check, but I think the ones on the E-Revo are the same way too........
