Part #B0541
About time. Kudos to Mugen!

Once you get it is easy to understand. Its been out in Japan for some time. I am about mugen but the Hudy (expensive) is still better IMO.

I need to replace two outdrives before the pins even wear. Is it worth it? would be nice if the pins were made of softer material than the expensive outdrives.

That is unusual, most of the time the pins wear first.

If you run Mugen then yes. Most cars out there right now have harder pins or cheap outdrives.
New 6R parts and tools are shipping on Friday. Dealers will have them soon.

Yes sir... I also use a small socket to support the end while pin is forced through.

Real benefit to this tool is it keeps everything nice and straight....no wallowing out the hole and having a pin backout.

If you do not have a pin replacement tool this will be a great addition to any tool box. It works as intended, and anyone buying it will not be disappointed.
