This is an exact fit ans pretty cheap. I know it's Integy but these tips are really good. Have been using them for a couple years now with no issues.

Nope, I have those tips/wrenches. They measure 3mm, not 3.5.

Would you like me to take a picture for you to prove it. I just measured right now and twice before I posted. They are exactly 3.5mm.

If you cant find 3.5 stock then why not drill the a arm and bulkhead too 4mm ?

I doubt it would weaken them very much .

Great idea. I have the stock rc8 ones and the tini ones. They are exactly 4mm. I would see no harm in the arm at all by doing this. Thanks for the tip. I was going to go with the integy 3.5mm tip but since I already have a butt load of the 4mm ones I mine as well try. Arms are so cheap anyways if it didn't work.

Considered that. Tapping the hinge pin brace inserts seems like a pain, then I need a drill bit, have to ream the arms etc...

All things considered thus far, I think the 3.5mm drill blanks would be cheapest, easiest, and work just fine. Just cut em to length and deburr the end, done. I'm going to try it.

Forgot about the inserts if you have the alloy pin holders , they might become the weak link if you drill them .

Darn inserts. I didn't even think about that. Just starting taking the arms of too. Well I have 2 3.5mm tips so I guess I can cut those down and use them in the front. I would think the front would be better first since it takes more abuse.

Hi there,
Another 2 packs through today.
Result: body already started to break; never mind, it looks like it's being used... ;-)
Great truck: I am going to have to order some screws: I have lost one of the screw that holds the motor mount from under the chassis (4 screws altogether); anybody with the reference for this screw as it is not clear at all in the manual?
Thx in advance.
Best,
V
