In my searching I came upon this article: http://www.rc-car.com/ME2/dirmod.asp...C973108AAB114D

I think that they were doing 1/10 scale CVD's so I'm not sure if the same tool would work on 1/8. But the tool that they used was the motorcycle chain breaker like Integra listed.

Well, I have a new set of CVD's for the Jammin CRT on the way anyway, so I'll play with the old ones. I just didn't want to go down that road if it was a bad idea.

Thanks for all the input guys!

Kris

There must be some differanc though because mine is a biotch to use & is no where as easy as the bone saver.I finaly used a buddys bone saver & am getting one of my own now. Its so far supperior to the MP one I have retired mine back to the bikes only tool box & am waiting on the bone saver one to replace my pins now. No joke find one & use it & you'll do the same.


sorry but there's something wrong with you if you cant figure out the Chain breaker style....imo its far superior to the smaller version for the leverage factor and the fact it comes with a case and has the ability to do Bigger or smaller pins....sucks paying double what its worth...but maby a little home work is in order before you buy things like that in the future.

I guess the next question is...... Can I actually buy the CVD pins? I did a quick eBay search and only came up with something for the RC18. Can anybody point me in the direction of a company that sells them?

Thanks
Kris

WOW so testy. I did infact do some homework on the product I bought.I bought it for working on motorcycle cam chains like it was ment for.I used it for dogbone pin replacement because it works for that too. I do know how to use the tool & was schooled by factory trainers for its intended use. The tool works fine for pin replacement but its very much like using a sledge hammer to nail a picture frame together.Its oversized for the job,weighs more & takes up a lot more room in the pit box than the bone saver & makes it more difficult to use the tool with the shaft still in the car than it needs to be. If you want to dismiss other ideas thats ok, its why they call America a free country.Good luck to ya.

I use the 3mm Mugen pins as replacements for
the bone ends of my shafts. They come in two
lenghts. Sometimes I need to grind a hair off so
they don't catch on the brake discs. As far as the
best tool for the job, what ever you find works best
for you. There are many ways to press a pin out of and
into a hole. I've used a bench-top drill press as an arbor
press, a vice, a pair of lock-joint pliers and socket, a c-clamp,
a socket-hammer-drift and a chain pin tool. What ever gets the
job done for you.

I have the Hudy one and dont really recommend it. I have to use a small sledge hammer to get it the pins. My buddy has the bone saver and loves it.
