If you take the bolt out that holds the grips on the hub,you'll see a washer.That washer bends and allows slop in the grips..Find the same size washer at a hardware store but get a hardend washer..Many blow money on upgraded tail assys when its a simple fix..

In place of the standard washers that secure the tail blade grips, I use old thrust washers from the 450 main blade grips.Goblin 700 AR7200BX / T550E V2 AR7200BX / 450 Pro FBL, GT5

Ron,
Thats good to know as I didn't know the 450 main grip thrust washers were the same size as the washers on the 550/600 and 700 washers for the tail grips..I need to remember that ..I always went to Ace hardware which is 2X farther away VS my hobby shop..
