Actually I did change out the standard nut. I don?t recall the specific nut I used, but it is a 6 point high strength locking steel nut that was being recommended throughout VAF about 8 years ago. Today I would use the 12 Point nut you referenced. I?ve never lost torque yet...just never got it just right. Regardless these nuts are difficult to reach, even through the cut out access panel in the gear tower. For anyone building now - address this while you can. After the plane is done getting down there and contorting yourself to try and reach those nuts is a real b#*t*@
