Question, the center to front dog bone pins seem to wear quickly. Can I replace the pin and if so which size are they?

Thanks!

The 8.2E is nice, but the losi spanks that ass in pretty much every catagory other than pirice point. There will be a new Rc8.3 nitro coming out this spring and a e version to follow shortly after.

Pins can be replaced. I use Mugen pins when I change them out. Don't know part number off the top of my head.

Well my buddy originally started running them in a v4 Hara. He picked up a couple when amain had the 70c on sale for pennies. I ended up getting two of the 100c packs after seeing his work well. I've only got two race days with them but they seem to work great for our 10min mains. Track is medium sized with a couple good length pulls. I'm not positive on what I had left in them after 10 min so I won't guess but it does the trick for me.

To be honest I switched over from an RC8.2 and I'm 100% glad that I did. I turn faster laps after a month of having this than after a year of having my RC8.2. Seems to have better steering and a lot better to control overall. And I loved my RC8.2 been AE since RC8bE

will these pins also work on the 2.0 buggy and truggy and do they need to be cut or are they the right length?

i really thought having center dogbones on the 3.0 would have alleviated some of that center front drive-shaft wear, i think straightened center drive-shafts (like the tekno) would have been better rather than the traditional angled ones carried over from nitro.

im basically replacing that drive-shaft every 6 weeks (i do drive a lot) on my truggy 2.0

Yes they will work on the 2.0's. You won't need to cut them. They are the correct length.

I had the Tekno EB48.1 and .2

The driveshaft wear is comparable to either.

The rear wore on the Tekno even with the redesigned rear case.

Lots of power coming out of these Buggys. It's just regular maintenance

Smokin' deal on the TLR 8e 3.0 at B and B Hobbies (Hudson, FL) this weekend only. $570. They only have one on the shelf that I will be grabbing today but they will honor the price for anyone that orders one from them.
