    Hot Racing C hubs and knuckles

    Anyone have these and can comment on them? Just bought them and I'm not to sure I like the way the go together. If I tighten the parts down the knuckles can't move but if I loosen then the bolts will come free. I'm guessing loctight but that's kind of scary to think that without loctight these won't work?

    Video didn't come up. Anyway's you can try the STRC hinge pin and king pin kit. I run hinge pin's from Losi, they are held in place by E clip's, no problem's what so ever and they are nice and loose with no slop.

    Blue loctite is awesome just think of it this way with all the vibrattion coming from
    your motor, jumps & crashes its going to loosen up almost every screw in your RIG.
    When i installed my Strc hubs i put it tight but then i couldnt move my steering.
    I loosen it up added some loctite and havent had a problem yet.
    BASH!! BASH!! BASH!! & BASH IT AGAIN!! <CAGE RAGE>
