I have a brand new, never run, Notorious. I was doing some pre-run set up work, and came across a real problem that I can't figure out. To get the 17mm hex hub off, you need to loosen the Black inner nut and remove the little pin that slides through the assembly. That black screw seems welded on! I used a 17mm wrench to hold the hub, set an Allen key into the center of the nut, but there is no way it's backing off. Is it reverse threaded? I put almost enough force on the Allen key to snap it, then decided to give up. I'm pretty experienced with basic rc mechanics, but this just makes no sense. Do they use red Loctite on those nuts? Like I said, it's brand new, and I was just tinkering with pillow ball adjustment before the maiden voyage. Hopefully, I'm just having a newb moment, and someone will tell me what I'm doing wrong. Fyi, already installed new Hot racing aluminum chassis brace, and aluminum servo mount is on order. Thanks in advance.
