I actuall just bought a set to try. I measured mine compared to what losi specs show and the fronts are about the same lenght but the rear are about 5mm shorter on the losi. I think I will be able to get away with just using the lower holes in the tower. When I get it together I`ll update.
A friend of mine is running the jammin Big Bores on his buggy and truggy.

We are running the Jammin 16mm Super Big Bore on the buggy. Silver springs and 1.4 pistons F/R with Losi 40 Front and 35 Rear. We ground about 3mm off the Jammin shock post so the shock would be more upright. Buggy is really, really good.

TR: 1.4 F/R with Losi 60 front and 45 rear. Gray springs in the front and blue in the rear.

Hi, today started building my new Matrix Pro. It's been around 2 years since I bought my first Matrix Pro. Driveshafts seem a bit improved, so is the main gear and front upper turnbuckles (longer and more robust). Naturally this new kit came with cross-pin diffs.

The only disappointment so far was that the lower hole of the other front shock body wasn't machined completely thru so I could not put the o-rings in place. Not a big deal since I got some spares, but will send this back to the local CEN dealer.

It really easy to make your own setup work I put little holes so I can fit set screws and put a notch on the pin so the set screw will hold it tight no problems.

You can get threaded hinge pins at CarolinaRC

Cen doesn't make any for the outer part of the arms. I don't know what other manufacturers would work on the outer arms. You can do what JustinD said and use another screw to hold the pin in.
