Default Hd chassis

Is anyone running the hd chassis? I'm wondering what effect it has on the car, and is it worth the coin? I'm running on med-high bite clay and turf.thanks

Default Cvd /Cva pins

Can anyone tell me what size pins I need to replace the one's in the center drive shafts and axels? I ordered the mugen pin replacement tool but am having a hard time finding the right pins. Is there another company that makes them? Thanks

I've used Traxxas pins. Part# TRA2754 and a little permanent locktite. Been running them for years in my swing shafts and 6 months in my center shafts.

Looking for a good outdoor setup for this car. Track is loose and dusty clay. Usual tires are holeshots if that helps. All of the setups on petit for "low traction" dirt are all still running chain links or electrons and lead me to believe it's not compatible.

This is the setup I've ran on low traction and it worked great. I ran it with blockades, Holeshots, and the Bowfighter combo and worked well with all of them. I ran my diffs medium tight though.

Interesting. This setup initially was intended for slicks. I'll give it a whirl.
Thanks.

This one works well, 1/2 mm more shim at the back holder and a longer wheelbase if
its really slick. I also liked a little looser front diff vs the rear.

For the rear its almost always Shumacher yellow mini pins. For the front I have
heard of everthing from the normal wide cut stagger, mini pins with rows trimmed
off to the narrow Lp stagger rib mounted on a cut down 4wd offset front wheel.

All Schumacher and almost always in yellow coumpound.

Hi all, i just got myself a used ZX6 for cheap but it needs quite a bit of refurbishment.

Does anyone know if its possible to replace the driveshaft pins on the ZX6 or are you required to buy a completely brand new driveshaft set?

I roughly know how to remove the pins but does Kyosho even sell the driveshaft pins separately?

I see Hudy sells 3mm pins for the XB4 but i am not sure about Kyosho.

Kyosho does not sell the pins on their own. Your only option from Kyosho, that I know of, is to replace the bones themselves.

You can replace them,
I think you need either a 2mm or a 2.5mm pin, I've used some Taxxas pins in the past for the CVD dog bone pins and I think the center drive shaft pins are the same size, don't remember the Traxxas part number though. Make sure if you do replace them, you also use a little bit of red loctite one there too so the pin won't come out.
