TRX .15 Motor Mounts

Just got my T-Maxx fixed, drove it for about 2 tanks and now I have noticed two of my top motor mounts screws have vanished, are these screws known to vibrate off or did the shop forget to tighten them up since they were tuning the engine.

DO shops still carry the screws for the .15?

They are the screws that contact the top portion of the engine to the base plate of the engine.

Ya I've had that problem too, once my engine was running on 1 screw!

Loctite is the key solution, and make sure the screw and hole are clean before applying it or it won't work well

One thing I wanted to pass on. A buddy worked in a screw supplier. We were talking about my tmaxx. I got a titanium screw kit and was having a hell of a time with screws loosening and aluminum parts getting stripped.

Turns out, aluminum and titanium cause a reaction and weakens metal. I went to stainless steel and never had a problem again. My poor magnesium chassis had oval holes.
