Default tell me if this is a good chain breaker.

it's 10 bucks. They have some from 8$ all the way to 80$

Or if anybody know one for a decent price, suggestions would be appreciated

While those should both work I know the second chain breaker is good as one of our local hobby shops uses it for pin replacement.

Make sure you got the proper sized pins or you'll get stuck 1/2 way through with no way to press the pin all the way out.

the Ebay breaker Comes with 2.2mm 2.9mm and 3.8mm which you'll want the 2.9mm for doing 3mm 1/8 drive pins.

When the pin wears down on the drive shaft f/r/ gearbox to wheel you can just replace the pin and not have to drop $10-15 on a new drive shaft. Just saves $$

Mugen Pins are what I use for my Losi 2.0. You can use XRay as well if you like.

I know my LHS uses them for doing Losi replacements, but before I knew they did it I saw Integra post about the Mugen pins, so I bought a ton of them and still have plenty left, and they work great.

Front/Rear Dogbones
3x13mm Part# MUGC0271

Center/Rear Drive Shaft
3x12.8mm Part# MUGC0270
