ive lost my front and rear shafts,rear first than front, front was ok it stayed in between servos,spent like an hour tryin 2 find the ******* found it but no set screw in it,so i poached one from my eb4,also they used red threadlock on the exhaust mount which i rounded out set screw tryin to get the mount out of the pipe,so i had to get a new pipe ,that really pi$$ed me off,apart from that a nd the one way bearing slipping that is the only prob ive had,this truck is a legend tough as, if u dont have it buy it!!!!!!

yeh my front wheel stopped spinning, when i checked it out it was the axle pin was sheared, of, i replaced it put it back together 10 min. later of a small jump my front wheel went for a ride, the axle itself sheared of and yes i lost the axle nut the pin ending my day early now i am lookin into the titanium axles , do not want this to happen again its embaressing when everybody knows u got the best truck but it keeps breaking cause of stupid crap like that caused by an issue like a little loctite i agree the factory should take a little more pride in there work, any other type buisness would be held acoutable for that [imagine your mechanic not putting grease on your bearings or not tightening your lugs] wake up LOSI. one more quick note thanx for all the great advice on this forum last week i had the problem with my tranny and my truck not moving this repair did not cost me a cent i took the advice of some very knolable rcers and cleaned my bearing [pbblaster 2 drops of owb oil ]and it works great no more problems thanx, mikel

I am SO f***ing dissapointed with my AFTERSHOCK! THAT damn screw you speak of is driving me crazy. I have loc-tited it 4 times now and it keeps coming out. Then yesterday I lost all Forward motion. in REAL CAR world i guess the clutch is slipping or is it that damn screw still? If i "REDDED" the drivetrain metal on metal would that be overkill or do i stick with the BLUE. I have had mine for a week and have to fix it EVERY time i take it out

what is wrong with the stock screws that you have to replace them, are they philips and you are putting hex on them.

the hexcrews are a stronger metal and will resist breaking or stripping the hex hole out of them... stainless steel screws are weaker than the stock screws so don't get any
