Default Losi 8ight 2.0 Rear Hubs/Hinge Pin

Just received a new set of rear hubs LOSA1730. Upon trying to insert the Hinge Pins through, they appear to be too large for the hole in the rear hubs. Tried both the L and R rear hubs and same thing. Is there a running change in the size of the hole and/or hinge pin? I didn't want to force it just yet, but it definitely isn't going to go through easy.

I think your right. The 8ight 2.0 manual does say part # A1730 but the parts list that is currently on the Losi website shows A1731. I'll call Horizon and get them to make it right since it's their error. Also of note is the part # for the hinge pin is the same in both the manual and parts listing associated with both part #'s for the rear hubs.

Drill it out with the proper sized bit and voila...2.0 rear's.

You'll be missing 1 camber link hole but most don't use the "A" position.
