Anybody (Tex) have experience with the king headz Aluminum Front Inner Hinge Pin brace? I have knocked the pins thoughts the stock Losi plastic brace and thought this may stop this from occurring. Any thoughts besides stop running into things?

Jim,
The King Headz hinge pin braces are sweeeet!! You will love them because I am an aggressive driver and popped the pins through the plastic braces a few times. Now the problem is solved, honestly.definitely worth it.

The KH front inner pin braces are very nice. They are just aluminum 1 peice that does not hold the pin in with plastic. They do look great though.
If you can not get your hands on some, then drill and tap a hole next to the hole for your pin. Put a screw in with a larger washer to cover the end of the pin. This will keep you going while you wait.
Caution - 7075 is some hard aluminum! Have a good drill and tap on hand!
Hope this helps,
TEX

Tex, are you worried about weakening the hinge plate with that drilled hole?

wow, been about 15 pages since I posted here.

What is everyone doing for shock dust covers since the Losi ones tear so easily? Heard of baloons but they're ripping too...

I'm also searching for a different inner steering link rod end that won't break while leading an A Main.

Thanks in advance fellas.

The Thunder Tiger ones that look like an accordion are working great for my buddy. I've given up.

I've gone to aluminum inner tie rod ends off of a Revo. They never break.

Cool idea for the inner tie rod ends. A few weeks ago I got some revo parts and made captured rod ends that won't pop off. Works awesome. I saw Steve Slayden do this to a borrowed 8ight-T in OKC, so I decided to do it. '

I still use the balloon trick for the dust covers. I leave them a little long on the spring cup end so they can't stretch. There is always some slack. I have replaced them once and started doing this 4 gals. ago. I just replace when they get dirt in there. I will probably retire before I run out of balloons. lol

Man talk about Karma..I tried to buy a $30 power supply on the 'for sale' thread yesterday,but it was sold in a blink of an eye. I must've done something right, and it wasn't ment for me to get that pyramid one cause today i picked up a competition power supply for $50 buck's...Karma?? Or maybe cause i happen to drive,and my lucky number is an 8? I just wanted to say Thank's Jason F. for being a great ambasador to r/c. And Thank's for a killer price on the Comp.

these are what Ive been using they work really well and you don't need the felt scrubbers as the shock shaft on the losi is thicker than the hong nor (jammin)they fit over the bottom shock cap perfectly.

How do these work?? do you have a pic? they look awfully thick and probably act as a downstop too? unless Im picturing it wrong.

Oh, and how in the world would 1500 in the center diff even make it feel nice?

They are made to go over the bottom caps of a CRT shock(Jammin run these instead of boots), and yes they would make for a little less down travel if you put them on the Losi shock.
