That truck looks familiar You could also use the traxxas hinge pins. I used them on my lxt a long time ago. They screw into the plastic. But that truck has the lunsford pins, so I'd keep those in it.

I also can't stand having these E-clips on my XXX-T, the B4 has a captured pin, Associated must have a patent on it..
It has been suggested to me that I can add a set-screw to the arms, and flatten out the pin at the spot the screw comes in. The set screw then hold the pin in place, no e-clips. Sounds good, haven't had time to do it yet.

What I'd also like is something to eliminate the body clips as well, those are also a pain.

Since you guys have XXX-Ts, you could also try the XXX-4 hinge pin screws where ever the hole is 3/32.

I have a XXX-4 also, but haven't been racing it, I'll take a closer look at it, do you mean the front area where the arms meet/connect, there is a hinge pin screws that hold the pins in? this can be used on the XXX-T?

I'm not 100% sure, the threaded area might be too big, but you could always space it out some. I will try it right now and see.

*edit* Nope , It doesn't work. The XXX-4 Hinge hole must by smaller than 3/32 bedcause the screw is to small to fit.
