Default 4WD to 2WD

I have a OFNA pirate monster that has screws holding on to the half shaft holders. The front screws keep coming loose and making the truck 2wd. I already tried thread lock and that did not work. Is there anything else i could try.

On the shaft there should be a flat spot. Make sure when you tighten the set screw or screw that it is being tightened to the flat spot.

are you sure when you apply the thread lock that the surface area is clean? spray the area with brake cleaner, let it dry, and try it again. blue lock tite should be good. I know most people dont like to use red, but i use red on my grub screws and axle screws. just have to make sure you use heat to remove the screw, or otherwise you'll strip them out.
