I have bought many new rear hub carriers because the ball stud just got pulled out of it.
I even bought the upgraded aluminum version to solve this problem (that indeed works).

Since I have multiple cars (vortex and raider) I never bought aluminum for all.
Today I had to swap out my gearbox with a new one (due to ball bearing failure that trashed all internals in 10 seconds). Then I found that the ball stud connected to the gearbox is 3mm longer compared to the one on the hub carrier, see image:

If you use this longer ball stud in the hub carrier you can screw on a m3 nut on the other side, making sure it never gets pulled out any more. See next image:

I should have used washer, but I did not have it lying around.

So just use the longer ball stud (AR330009) in stead of the original AR330171.

This mod will work on: Vortex, Granite, Raider and Fury

I got so fed up with those ball studs coming out, did something similar.
Used a Team Associated, matched up size at LHS, then screwed it in with nut on other side like you did.
The killer is when that ball stud popped out, a dogbone woud go flying, then I'm playing Where's Waldo searching all over for it, ugh!
