The new ones are V3 pins and are blue. The key is to get some of the Purple loctite from Mcmaster car (Its for metric screws and light weight strength). Just put some of that on there and barely tighten down the set screw. Then heat shrink it. I did this after the carpet nats this year and have had the same set of ECS's in my car since then and not broken or lost a pin since on that set.

If I recall that was a rolling change so the part should be the same number but with v2 on the package.
Yes they are the same part number....but V3 now and are treated and a blue color.

Tightening the set screw too much is what causes the pins to break usually. It stresses them and they break but I have yet to break a blue one!

Does anyone have a comparison between the PF MazdaSpeed6 and the P37r?

For the Protoform bodies for the most stable to most aggressive:
Speed 6, P37-R, LTC-R

Speed 6: Generates very good on-power steering and the most stable.
P37-R: Combines the initial steering of the LTC-R and on-power steering of the Speed 6, rolls more and is good around carousels.
LTC-R: Generates more initial steering than the Speed 6 and P37 and less on-power steering.

It's a running change so the part number is the same, do be sure and confirm that what you are getting are the blue ones. FYI I have orderd pins from mcmaster before and had the cut to lenth and a notch cut into them. The pin stock I got from them was junk and worse than our V2 pins, so caveat emptor!

ECS Drive Shaft Pin 1.5 x 8.5 - V3

ECS Drive Shaft Pin 1.5 x 9 - V3

Ok, if I look at my car its going to be fast

From what I hear, USA gets them in next week and they start shipping to your LHS. I have one on order myself so I hope this is true. Someone also indicated on the forums it may not be until the New Year.

What do you guys do about wheels that want to rub on the front camber links? Grind the rim down on a truer?
