I completely understand people's desire to drive on the original pins. I've had my truck for two weeks now and I'm going craZy while waiting for my replacement pins to arrive.

Yes there is an easy way to tell if you have the soft pins. Open the diff. If there are pins in there.... They are soft.

Just curious, did you apply any grease around the outputs (ie between the outputs and the insert you're talking about)?
Yes, just like I do when rebuilding my 8ight diffs (in the groove)
This problem only happened because I was running 4s and hasn't happened again on 2s or 3s
The CC 1800kv on 4s is/was a monster in this truck (torque wise) and with 5k in the CD it didn't stand a chance for the abuse I gave it

Run those soft pins to any local weld shop and have them harden for ya. Sent mine to work with my dad and it only took him 15 minutes to do the entire process. Shouldn't cost hardly anything.

They are metal inserts that the output spins in, well when I ran my CC 1800kv on 4s the heat that generated in the diff due to the lite oil was enough to melt the nut like notch that holds the nut in place inside the diff cup and the nut was able to spin which opened up the exit hole on the diff cup and this is where my leak was.
It wasn't until I bought a replacement diff cup that I even knew that the diff had such an insert for the output.
Anyone running 4s or higher I would definitely recommend a heavier diff fluid to avoid melting the groove for the output insert.
I don't plan on running 4s but just wanted to see what my 1800 could do in the truck and it was fun.
Hope this helps, good luck!

Great idea! I've got the interim pins that Ryan gave me at the track. I haven't installed them yet, I think I'll do that since there's a welder just a couple miles away.

Can someone tell me if I can run the diffs without the little square washer that goes between the gear on the diffpin and the diff case? Like on my 8ight 2.0?
