Yes, you need something strong and thin to push the pin out a little bit. I used a broken Dremel bit, holding it with pliers so I didn't crush my fingers
As soon as the old pin is recessed a little bit, continue to push it using the new pin (with pliers of course) and bingo, a new dogbone

LHS(s) have sold out. Stuck with the B4 for now, unless I want to go through Amain (yuck).

Stormer and Amain want $18+ for shipping. I can get it cheaper locally. Maybe I'll just wait.

Putting it on backwards like that changes how aggressive the car is. So maybe it is installed that way for a reason.

Got my Rb6 fully assembled last night. I'll post some picks once I've finalized the cable management.

Quick question though, how do you tighten the diff without removing the tire/axle? I saw a video of Jared adjusting his diff with just one screw driver. How was he doing that?

The K diff is ingenious!

There's a hole on the right outdrive (I think it's the right). Stick a hex driver, pick, screwdriver, or whatever you want in there (to keep the adjustment screw from spinning), and rotate the opposite wheel.

Awesome deal, but out of stock.

I'm not happy about it, but I guess I'll just wait.

I work at Superior and had to get one off ebay $425 shipped. Kyosho says they'll have more in 6 weeks, which is what they've been saying for a couple weeks now...

Driver or passenger side.

Looks like in the directions that the screwhead for the diff is on the left side or drivers side?
