    looking for help

    we have muliple cars all slash 4x4, we have the 3500 and lipo batteries, we also put on the mip cvd axles. now we are having trouble keeping the tires on, loosing the blue nuts in about 2minutes, any ideas?

    another question, if i go with the bigger wheels and get the 17mm hex addapter , will it fit on the upgraded cvd axle s with the nut and set screw, not the pin model?

    OK , so 2 things with the new style, 1st is STOP using them unless you have the newest hexes that have full corners not rounded. the rounded ones will destroy wheel hexes (contact Matt @ MIP for updatet hexex)

    2nd is a few have found the spacer between the 2 hub bearings can be too small and when you tighten the axle nut down it squishes the bearing after using and the nut SEEMS loose, eventually the brgs are destroyed and acts like a loose wheel then strips your wheel hexes. I've added tra1985 axle shims to take up the space
