I have an Autoworld super lll cars. Picked it up last week. As I was running it today it got really slow. Took the body off and seen two tiny silver screws sticking out that werent before I ran it. I screwed them back it and it went right back to being fast. Has anyone else had these come out on them while running the car(or am I the only one with one of these)?

The link it the car I have.

What do I do to fix the screws from coming out?

they are set screws, they hold the brushes and springs in the brush tube!
I think the guys that use brush tube set screws use a tiny dab of purple loctite to stop the screws from moving from the vibration

key word is I think!
I use set screw a million years ago!
now i use slottech bigfoot brush system and rubber bands

But I have used purple in the past, but 1 little little little dot and I could unscrew them when I wanted to.

But I could not remember which had the lest grip

I do use green to keep the barrels from moving in the chassis
