    17mm adapters

    I bought some 17mm adapters for my rally. I cant get the nut to tighten. It turns like a a half of spin and its tight but the wheel is lose. Has this happened to anyone?

    If you purchased the Traxxas wheel adapter kit, they come with a little too much locktite applied. I had the same problem with trying to get the nut all the way on. I had to remove some of the locktite using a very small pick (Not too much, you don't your wheels to loosen up.) and was then able to screw the nuts on. It was still tight but worked as they should.
