    Same as always, its not new, just newly discovered by you. The nut rips right through the stock plate.

    Not all auto axles are floating. In fact, many are not, while some are semi-floating

    Ya I'm somewhat familiar with cars having been a master mechanic for the majority of my adult life. Show me a modern car with a non-floating CV axle... not talking about live (solid) axles.

    Woah! No need to get sarcastic and upset man. Just mentioning that not all axles are floating. You and I know what we are talking about but someone with less knowledge seeing the statement that all auto axles are floating may misunderstand. And yes, I was referring to solid, which would be included in the blanket statement "all".

    I honestly wasn't trying to be rude, just clarifying. Sorry if I upset you.

I'm beginning to think all that fing loctite they put on the castle nut from the factory was for a reason. Any ideas on how to keep this from happening again would be great! No it wasn't being driven hard either. It's my wife's rig and she isn't confident enough yet to really push it. Please help me guys I am a bit nervous if it happened going around a corner or on a hill it could get real dangerous real quick!!
    Loctite 277 with the primer first, torque to 250lbs then go further if you need, to get the plate on.

    I just joined the lost the axle nut and wheel assembly while going down the trail club. 1,600 miles of hard riding, with no problems then up a rocky trail... wildcat goes right and wheel goes left.

    Just like TXChristopher mentioned...... My axle bolt spun inside the goofy retaining plate and then it all came off. Luckily we found axle bolt & washer, then were able to thread axle nut onto all the damaged threads (from dragging axle down a rock trail) pulled off the destroyed rotor, and re-tightened that axle nut with 120-150 LBS of torque and used a piece of wire as a cotter pin. Got me back to camp.

    Looks like it's time for TX's roll pin fix. (thanks for the info TX!) I wish i would have been smarter and listened to TX on this problem earlier.... you all may want to consider a preventative strike prior to your wheel(s) coming off and costing you an extra $couple hundred to repair all that was damaged, like I'm doing right now.

    I was even careful enough to watch my axle retaining plates for wear as I never run hubcaps and you can see the plates sitting in the stock Wildcat wheels.

    If you folks are smarter than I am you will go for the $2 fix with rollpins or aftermarket plate or something, before you end up like I did.

    TXCHristoper is saying this is what you need: 5/32nds roll pin and you cut it to length of course.

    Sounds like they're at Home depot, Lowes, etc...

    If you drive hard, like we do, then Loctite and recommended torque will NOT work. See my pics earlier about our fool proof solution! Follow me on Instagram @scranton_boys for all secret racing tips or check out the mods we do to our cat to keep it running with the XP's

    BRArmor,

    I sent you PM to see if you have any of your retaining rings available. I'm in the market for at least one.

    Please, let me know if I can order one from you. I need to get one going soon. Thanks, UtahWC.

    Never mind, after some research I found that the Trail doesn't have that plate over the hub only the regular Wildcat does. That plate locks the nut after tq down.
    So do the plates off the big WC fit on the Trail?
