    Hub hex's popping all the time

    Anyone else having problems with the hex screw underneath continuously popping through the plastic? See pic.

    I knocked my stock center shaft out of balance and running 3s it's spinning pretty darn fast, i pulled it out and i can't make it any straighter.

    Getting your money's worth!!

    I think these foams are done, what do you think? I have relentlessly beaten them for about 4 packs, all drifting and spinning on 2s brushless.

    Center shaft bent

    I ran a 3s through it this morning, amazing speed but one run resulted in a small head on fight with a kerb. No breakages but I think I bent the center shaft slightly as the shaft now vibrates under...
