Default First real run, finally.

As everyone knows this thing is a beast. After my front diff debacle, I was able to run 45 mins straight today. Only issue was a rear wheel came loose and stripped. Thought I lost a rear diff, so glad it was only a wheel but still not happy, had to break out the spare. So I check tightness every 15 mins or so. Front right keeps loosening up, any suggestions? This is a kit, so have the upgraded system.

I thought about that. A little dab of red on the outer threads.

Congrats on your run. I just finished my 2nd run after my Tekin nightmare that put me out of using it for almost 3 weeks.

45min? Doing what? I get 20-22min with 8200's at 50% speed runs and 50% goofing off.

I keep a wrench in my pocket like this one King Headz 17mm Truggy Wheel Wrench (Long) [KHZ-KT-011] | Maintenance - AMain.com - AMain.com but on my Losi truggy i use these OFNA 17mm Serrated Wheel Nut Set (4) [OFN10994] | Parts - AMain.com - AMain.comhavent had them come loose since. They may work for you.

I was goofing off with a few speed runs. My time is not scientific, just an estimate. I am at 10000 MAH. I will time it next run and see for sure.

Use plumbers tape. It's dirt cheap, it's removable, but it helps with the nut not backing off. I use it and haven't had a loose nut since. I still wreck wheels though!

I run about 45 mins with 2 in series 2s Bias 60c 5000 Mah with my RTR at full speed running circles around the soccer field treating it like an oval track.

A lower kv motor will increase runtimes...but you'd need 6s.

Had a great run today, mud, water and lots of jumps, unfortunately landed dead on the front right tire from about 8 feet and split the A-arm right at the seam where the pivot bolt feeds through at the bulk head. Cant blame the truck, just a very hard, bad landing. Overall though this thing is a blast, takes on anything.
