    So i bought a p3 and effing LOVE IT. However, on two separate occasions I've had the top portion of the frame literally pop out of the front swivel that is a part of the bottom base. How on earth do I prevent this little gem from happening? Anyone have this?

    Now, when I'm driving some cars like the Porsche Moby Dick in PC2 (AKA: the death trap), that thing is a bouncy barely controllable meteor. I'm scared to drive it because of the pop out issue. Any help!

    There's a YouTube P3 review that addresses this issue at 30 minutes into it. The reviewer tied several wraps of speaker wire around the joint to prevent the top portion from poping off the bottom.

    Please use the bolt to prevent problems.

    The only bolt I see is the part attached to the frame that goes into the hole. I see nothing more that you have to do to it?

    I figured it out. I wasn't aware it goes in from the bottom. Now this makes sense! Thank you for the help :)
