Default XRAY XB4 Bone Service (pin replacement)

ATTN XB4 drivers - Don't throw away your old dog bones, get them serviced instead!

As a fan of the XRAY XB4, I have found that it's robustness and reliability is something I value as some of it's major strengths. As such I have been getting a bit nit picky about the condition of my drive bone pins since I don't have much else to complain about with the car .

XRAY has made these a replaceable item with the XB4, I have found myself doing the replacement whenever I see the pins getting worn. I got to thinking there must be other fastidious owners out there looking to save a few bucks and extend the life of their drive bones so I thought I would offer the service to others.

Basically, send me your 6 bones and a stamped self addressed envelope, and I'll replace the pins. For the best service I think a small express post bag would be best as at least there is a chance you'll get it back in a week. Anyway, it leaves the postage method and cost up to you.

Price to refurbish your bones with genuine XRAY/HUDY 3mm pins is $30. That's just $5 a bone! I've refurbished mine now 3 times and still going strong (we race twice a week! ). So save yourself some money and get your bones serviced!

See attached pic that shows which pins will be replaced.

Cheers,

Mike.

Anyone else for a bone refurbishment?

I've got enough pins in stock for 2 more sets.
