Well, there's an item for witch the term " upgrade " is used loosely... :crazy:

To lock the adjuster in place, you have to tighten the nut at the end of the shaft...

Sadly, since the adjuster is made of "pot metal"; this results in the shaft breaking off...

And there goes $20.00... :'(

When the smoke finally cleared, I decided to build my own adjusters; kind of like I did a couple years ago for my H.L. Pershing: Low costs home-made track tensioners H.L. Pershing:https://www.rctankwarfare.co.uk/forums/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=9366

The new design is very simple but It works...
