Minor issues with my M18, goddam wheelnuts!

Wheel nuts and hex things to take off the wheelnuts or secure them,


I have like AVM rims and cvd's in my m18, anyways im sick of tightening the wheels with my nails or with a plier coz it wrecks the bolt.

Anyways it always comes loose when im running it on rough tarmac, and therefore ive lost another wheelnut.

Its like the wheenut on the rear of the hpi micro rs4 i think,

Does anyone? *cough alfred* know where i can buy some for? along with the tool to tighten them with?

=D

and my m18's been pretty good, except the atomic balldiffs arent as good as i thought they would be, and also the atomic rollbars limit the suspension travel sooo much that i cant really turn properly with them on so ive decided to ditch them too, and run stock gearbox's instead of the chunky atomic ones.

You should put blue loctite on the wheel nuts to keep them from rotating loose......sorry bud but cant find them as well....you might want to send xray the part number and ask where you can get them......

Thats the one....just make sure you get blue and not red........red is stronger and you find that your going to be stripping screws trying to get them off.......I have been to Xray's site and couldnt find any mention of tools for the wheel nuts........didnt the person you bought it from put it in the package.
