Try 7/10/5 in the diffs. Put the 1.0 carriers back on and spend $20 with M2C for their outer hing pins. They're hardened steel and come with a drill bit that's the correct size for drilling out the A-arm. If you ever bend one, you've really done something.

if i get, the m2c outer pins i shouldnt have to drill anymore i wouldnt think because i already have my rear arms drilled to get the 2.0 pins to fit.

yea i, might have to get some new 1.0 rear hubs not sure i did run 7,10,5.. and i dint have enough rotate and the 3000w in the rear seems to be better on a dry track.

il see how much money i have i have to get new clutch shoes so we will see.

have any, of guys bent the rear shock shafts on the 1.0 t should i run less droop than 110mm or is it just from a hard landing off a double maybe ?

its funny, though the one rear shock shaft bented as soon as some of the gold coating started to wear off toward the top of the shaft.

Hard landing or you got hit from behind.

Ti Coating is just that, A Coating which has nothing to do with the durability of the shaft.

Are these the ones you are talking about?

http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...d-Hinge-Pins-2

If they are maybe I'll get a couple of sets. I'm getting tired of replacing the outer hinge pins on our buggies.
It's funny I was just getting ready to ask what would work best for a replacement pin. LOL!!
Thanks there TC

IMO the Stock 2.0 rear outter pins are Better then the M2C's for the fact you dont have to do any drilling and 3.5mm is more then enough....4mm is Overkill and imo having the small 3mm threaded shaft for the nuts is a weak point.


Go 2.0's and get a set of rear arms to go with them.

Go 2.0's and get a set of rear arms to go with them.

im using, the 2.0 rear outer pins and i had to use the 2.0 rear hubs and i can only use the (b) hole in the #4 hole on the tower inless i use the (a) hole with the upper #1 hole on the tower .

i like to use the (a) hole with the #4 on the tower i dont like the (b) on hole on the rear hub.

i have no idea how using the (a) hole on the rear hub with the upper #1 hole on the tower would work on my track.
