You are putting it on the axle first ?
Has the ring seated properly?
Mine was easy once the ring was in place.
Are your wheel hubs sloppy on the splines like mine?

I have the exact same problem with my LSR axle, I thought maybe I had a blem axle or something, I haven't measured anything yet, but I am wondering if this will make the rear sprocket be slightly out of alingment, being the axle won't slide in that last little bit.

ill step up to the plate on this one, since im a lonestar distributor. The first so many axles that were put out by lonestar they didnt cut the groove deep enough. Its a very easy fix, any dremel tool will work to make the groove just a TAD bit deeper. Lonestar claims that it will still hold, but i just did it for extra security. They assured me that it was only about the first 40 axles they produced. Hope this helps!

I thought about doing that, but say the axle was to break, would lonestar void their warranty when they seen that I had ground on the axle?? :sonic
