Mr Fleming, only old aviation equipment used lockwire, as no effective locknuts etc were available. As to any upper classes of motorsport these days you won’t find lockwire anywhere near an F1 car or any of the higher formulae – it’s just not needed with effective fasteners.
I agree a nylock nut used 1000 times would lose it’s effectiveness, about 10 uses is enough which is why I said that tech should identify this. If you go to any major kart events outside of USA you will find no other karting bodies require lockwire, and they don’t seem to have any problem.
Given that lockwire is not used on wheelnuts in karts are you saying that you change your wheelnuts every time you take off your wheels ? ? ?
