yes, i overtightened it :(
I know i have seen an upgrade replacement for it but i can't find it on the normal stores i buy from.
this is the oem part that is broken:
Any help finding that upgrade part would be much appreciated

i actually just broke mine... funny that you mentioned it
why don't you just order it from ben's? seems a bit pricey tho
about to go to my LBS to see if they have a better price than 4$

theres no "upgrade" replacement part, just buy a few to keep on hand...

I know i have seen the stronger version of the part somewhere online before and i would like to upgrade if its possible to prevent this from happening again.

LBS is the way to go. Even a high LBS mark up (although unlikely for nuts and bolts), would be minimal compared to high shipping prices online....

It was hard as hell for me to locate a fomula locknut locally, finally found one at a shop that was a little more ssfg specific than the others.
If there is an upgrade out there I would also be interested to know of it.

I ordered mine from mikes bikes and free shipping to site-to-store. Sorry I'll find you link when I get around to it.
