All this to take away .0002th's of material. Insanity.

No, you use the calipers to measure the shafts that go inside the arms.
This way you know it's exact size and can go a tiny bit larger. Most RACERS
already have a set of callipars to measure droop and preload and I think just about every MAN has a drill
laying around, this is only suggested to those who want perfection on handling
I happen to have gotten that set for $30 and can do ANY RC vehicle and
can also be used to mod pistons and wings etc etc, you need it to be only
2thousanths to not have play in the hinge pins but enough to move freely
within the arms, a reamer works but its a whole lot easier to use a drill bit
and can be more precise.

Clearly someone has lost it in making fun of me

p.s I dont have that exact set only the small bits on top of the door
fastest google pic I could find

My XXX-CR used 10 bits, and 2 more for my wing mod which makes 12 on one
car and thats a smaller car, racers with mroe than one car could use up to
50 bits

I'm not making fun of you. I am just pointing out that most "people in this hobby" are not hardcore racers and do not have to spend alot of money on things they don't need especially when there is a cheap specific tool that can be bought. I have every tool imaginable but when it comes to threads like this asking about specifics and it gets turned into something else it can be off putting to beginners or people looking for certain data.

One of the advantages of a reamer compared to a drill is not size, but rather surface finish. A good reamer will leave a much smoother finish. Drill bits leave a helix trail. Even when titanium coated, used in a drill press or mill even to ensure correct alignment, by expert machinists. That is why reamers exist, for when a close fit with good wear properties is desired.

Both ways work perfectly fine I was raised
in a race shop you see, I enjoy perfection
If I don't win my only excuse is me
the driver, I always go back and forth
when im using a drill bit to make it smooth then
use air compressor to get burs out
this is my method but it would be easier
for most people to use a reamer

Yes but..
Size AND surface finish are much better with a reamer than a twist drill.

heat treatment keeps surface mint and untouched vs drill bit OR reamer.

Drilling, Reaming, your making arms move more freely
for handling, as long as you get them to move freely
and not have a lot of play you won't notice a difference.
I use drill bits, I ensure their cutting edge is sharp
and drill the cut on a slow speed and take it out
then come back with a high speed setting going back
n forth to ensure an accurate cut, keep in mind that
factory parts hingepins have play of spec +/-
in essence not everyone's hinge pins are exactly the same
size and thats why I use calipers and drill bits

No matter what method you use, as long as arms move freely
with very little play then you have reached your goal
for a good handling car
