got the t-rex stand and spool/sliders i ordered a while back. installed the spools using blue loctite and a short 5mm allen wrench to snug em up. rode my bike to work this morning and when i got there i decided to check the spools and they were loose :eek5. apparantly i didn't tighten em enough when i installed em. how tight should i be cranking those things down to keep em in place? the swingarm threads are tiny and i didn't want to strip em thats why i just snuged em up. :confused: thanks

i guess when ur putting the bike up in the stand, they rotate with the "v" of the hangers. they're made of a delrin hard plastic so maybe they'd get all scratched up or worn out otherwise? i dunno...

mine - shoguns dont spin... i might have put the washer inside the spool vs putting it btwn swing-arm and the spool.... been using pitbull stand - no problem

i just called woodcraft real quick... they basically said that the washer in between the spool and the swingarm helps allocate some of the pressure to more of the spool and sometimes causes it to spin. so basically there's no advantages or disadvantages. i like those satos tho, they're a bit smaller than mine.
