Every single time I take my E-revo out I have to tighten the ft pivot ball caps as they loosen about half a turn. Any way to stop these from loosening? When they loosen they add significant slop to the ft...which ive just ordered the HPP wheel hubs..im determined to get this thing running straight and slop free!
Are there upgraded knuckles I should be looking at?
Could try Teflon tape until you can find something more permanent
Sent using lipo power
Mountains cant stop me
they have tried
Maybe a drop of blue loctite?
Drill out a hole and put a set screw in there to hold the cap. I actually got sick of my teflon tape not holding the cap and started this mod last night. Very easy.

Its All relative to your perspective.
Golden horizon or GPM racing has pillow ball caps with a o-ring, these might work for you?
Pillow balls just as well get loose in my Tekno carriers.
you could do like i did when i got fed up with that happening.i set the caps in the desired place i wanted and drilled a hole threw the knuckle and the cap and put a long enough tiny screw threw both of them.them suckers don't
move at all now

I usually find when the pillowball caps are coming unscrewed that the area that houses the pillowballs is getting pretty worn, and so are other areas of the knuckle...
Before spending time on them look at the area where the pillowball threaded stud comes out, see if it looks worn enough that the pillowball may pop out.... If it is I'd just replace the axle carriers/knuckles...
Otherwise teflon tape worked fine for me.
