Default Earthquake 8E problem

So when i was driving my redcat earthquake 8e the wheel came off. Later i order the parts to fix it but when i put the lock nut on it stays on but when the car drives it goes down to far and locks up the wheel Ive tried lock-tight and washers but none of them worked so any suggestions ill try them

What do you means "it goes down too far"?

That's sounds strange, cause the lock nut is meant to be tight. But that shouldn't stop the wheel from turning.

Have you inspected the wheel itself to see if nothing if broke?

That does sound really strange.

Perhaps you have a bad bearing causing the wheel not to turn?

It sounds like the pin in the back of the axle stub probably isn't seated correctly, effectively shortening the axle stub.
