    Center shaft keeps loosening up

    My center shaft keeps coming lose from my slipper shaft. I have locktited the set screw many times and tried replacing the set screw with a stainless steel one but still no luck. Anybody have any ideas?

    Thats odd. I have never loctited that screw and I run an 1/8 scale motor on 3S. Just make sure you let the loctite dry over night.

    Are you using a good hex driver or the tools that came with the truck to tighten the set screw? Mine has never come loose either.

    Thanks for all the replies. I moved the set screw thing all the way back towards the slipper and now it seems to work better
