The g-force locknut won't tighten completely up on two different Raptor's....you can turn it by hand and you feel it snug up, but if you keep turning it just loosens a little then snugs up, etc. etc. etc. It doesn't have a "set screw" like stock locknut....it has and allen head bolt that runs perpendicular to the axle in the lock nut. My main concern was the fact that it doesn't tighten to a positive stop.....didn't know if it was normal on these g-force axles............thanks

i just ran into this problem with my stock nuts and my dominator 2.....i would tighten them up by hand and then put a wrench on them and they'd tighten a few more threads then slip back a couple....then again and again....when i took the nuts off i found what looked like wire wrapped in the thread on the axle so i guess my nuts were stripped...so you might wanna make sure all your threads are good or possibly tighten your lock screw on your nut down so the axle nut will grab your axle threads tighter....yeah thats sounds like a good idea try that

your not suppose to tighten it to tight u can ruin your bearings,

what u want to do it is tighten it till it's snug and than lock the nut in place
u don't want it to tight.
