Default Hinge pin upgrade for 8ight

I was reading the other night were some guys were talking about the Losi 8ights pins were bending. they were recommending another pin that was working good for them. I have read thru a lot of pages this after noon and can't find where I read it. Anyone have any input or info on this? The pin was a M2c or MCs something like that. I'm trying to get my LHS shop to look into them for us that run the 8ight and 8ight-T. He just got us in the Dynamite shoes as well as all the springs and and Losi clutches and he's willing to help stock some of these other parts as well. It would help if I could find the name or part #'s.

I'm presumming that the 5/8ths are the better ones for both the 8ight and 8ight-t? I'm almost certain I read that the A-arms had to be drilled out slightly for them to fit correctly? Anyone have the drill bit size needed to do it correctly. Thanks for the help! That's the name I thought it was but wasn't 100% sure and it didn't come up in my google search.
