    Angry Pinion screw unscrews :c

    Why is that bought new pinion traxxas 14t for slash and after 30sec of run the pinion unscrews?
    Should I get new pinion gear or new grub screws?
    I tried other screws but same thing happened

    What to do?

    I put I little bit of lock tight on mines. Works great. Just a little cause then it will be hard to take off.

    LocTite or Devcon thread locker are the good brand names to get. Your local hardware store will sell the stuff. Definitely get blue , NOT RED. Red = heavy duty / permanent applications. Not good for tiny parts.
    Make it idiot-proof and along comes a better idiot

    Loctite in the blue flavor, dont use red if you intend on ever changing it. The red is meant to stay.
    It can be bought in either any LHS or any auto parts store. Auto parts stores are more plentiful.
