Default slipper nut to tight??

i just bought a robinson racing pinion gear and installed it. before installing it i tightened down the slipper nut. Then Iinstalled the pinion and put blue locktite on the set screw. when Ihit the throttle the set screw comes loose?? any suggestions?? the only thing Ican think of is the nut is possibly to tight?? it will run for 20 ft or so them come loose? it also rolls freely so its not binding.

I got the robinson racing slipper clutch its huge there is no way you are double nutting that thing! i will post pics tomorrow...the side of my bottle was worn out so i didnt see how long it took to dry. however, I will let it set. I really tightened the slipper nut down so I will keep an eye on it. Ialso ordered a castle parallel conector so Icould tone down the 6s and get a longer run time
