    hubs keep coming loose

    I have 17mm Hex Hubs on my emaxx and after some bashing, the screw in the hub gets loose. Is it because I need to buy new hubs?? Or is this a common problem when bashing?

    Have you tried lock tight?
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.

    I wouldn't mind applying new tread lock material on my hubs. Does anyone know what the exact type that Traxxas uses?

    Loctite is kinda like glue. Its used to keep screws and bolts from coming loose. Comes in different types. Red color tube is for permanent bond and the blue color tube is removeable. I use the blue removeable type. Seems to work pretty good for me and less chance of stripping out the hex on your screws than the red.

    I found that the purple works pretty good. Nothing ever came loose on my tmaxx and I put my whole emaxx together with it again. It doesn't set up as hard as blue and it comes apart a lot easier.
