+1 I used to bend or break a hinge pin every week. I installed the M2c hinge pins and I have been going strong with no problems at all for 2 months!

Can anybody be kind enough to post a pic of the M2C pins installed on their truck? I just got mine today and installed them, they seem longer than the stock ones and I don't understand where I'm supposed to put the spacers

it was either here....or in the 8ight Buggy thread...but as u can see....the 3 of the right have been cleaned....the 1 of the left has been untouched......I race Every week...so my stuff gets taken apart pretty often....and as i stated....ive tried Multiple differnt kinds of lube....but even with the best stuff ive found for my outdrive's it Still seems to rust up...so ive ditched them and am running nothing and relying on the setscrew alone....i feel if u clean the screw and insert prior to applying loc tite the screw's dont seem to budge.

When I ran the 8T, I used MUGEN rear outer hinge pins... Lunsford suck, stock ones suck.... but Mugen worked well... I dont like the M2C just cuz I dont want to drill hubs every time I need to change them.......... I changed rear hubs frequently, to take out the Losi slop you end up with every month or so....

when using a os speed 21vz-b v spec engine with this truggy has anyone ran into problems installing the clutch? do you need a special flywheel collet or anything? i have the clutch installed but when i put on the clutch bell, if i tighten the screw that goes into the crank that holds everything on, it'll lock up the clutch (no air gap with and without using shms). do you guys just use loctite on that screw and put it where you want it and let it dry? any suggestions would be great.

Use shims between the outer bearing and the clutch spacer (A9103). On some engines more shims are needed. I use a very, very small amount of loctite on the crank end screw. I have seen a few occasions of people having that screw back out. Then the CB will walk forward and grind against the fuel tank.

So sometimes shims are needed between the flywheel nut and inner bearing. But also shims may be needed between the outer bearing and the clutch spacer too. Just take your time here. This is the time to get things right---when the engine is out of the vehicle. And try for that magical .5mm CB end play, while keeping the clutch shoes covered with the Cb.

If you use locktite on that screw be prepared to slot it and remove it with a flat head driver. I quit using it after I had the head of a screw break off and force me to replace a crank. My fault on the removal method (tried a screw extractor to save the collet.)

The crank turns counter clockwise, that means in the direction it would tighten the screw. I'm taking my chances and using no loctite. My experience is even a very smal amount and the heat of the engine bakes it into red loctite

adding shims to any part of my clutch assembly will do nothing for me. it's as though my crank is to short because i can't get any air gap when everything is tightened down.

You have to use the Losi washer that comes with the clutch. Part number LOSA9104

I space the CB far enough out from the flywheel to not touch the flywheel, yet close enough to keep all the clutch shoes covered. That's about it. I don't have a measurement for you, sorry.
