Yes The pin issue is no secret yet people keep driving the trucks when they know. Your truck is not Neo, it is not The One with hardened pins out of the box. Take it from someone who has chewed up diff gears, change the pins ASAP. New gears are a month and a half out and I don't know too many people fabbing them up in their spare time to help out.....

Just fix the pins right off the bat and drive the shiz out of the truck, it's way more fun that way

And THANK YOU to Chris. He is awesome and has helped me out to find a solution for the masses. I have already thanked him personally but a public one is more than good here.
ryan, does this mean in 2 weeks you will get the pins in your warehouse and another week to ship it to us? how certain are you this is definitely good quality diff pin this time? it's just hard to not run this good truck anymore.

Ok...now I am pissed. I took out the diff grease, put in the "Chrispins" (thanks Chris), put everything back together, put in my electronics and thought I'd be able to go out and test out the new rig tomorrow..... then I noticed the front right axle had an inordinate amount of play in it. Took it apart and whoever Losi is sub-conning the the assembly to forgot to to install a CV coupler inside the dogbone !!! Just a pin going through the damn dogbone!! WTF ?!?! Besides the Chrispins now I have to buy a $20.00 set of 10-T CVs just to get this rig runnable...jeezzus.... what's next?

This is the biggest crock of chit I have ever heard. The pins are not made of wire bro.

Don't post ridiculous statements like that. It does nothing but make you look like a complete moron.

here's a pic of the stock ten-t losi pin.

i just thought someone should be aware of it....geez!

TBR has come through with a front bumper and a rear skid plate.
On another note I don't find it too hard to believe you can bend the pins with your hands.
It is really thin in the middle and if it's a soft metal that is easy for a lot of men to just be able to bend it with your hands, especially for men who work with their hands on a regular basis.
