Default Warpspeed hinge pins

Hi guys,
A few poeple are having problems with hinge pins snapping over here. I havent encountered this myself, but i was wondering if any other hinge pins 'happened' to fit, Yokomo sd ones are the right diameter but too long. Any ideas?

Would get them from microtech (the importer) but they dont have anything in the way of warpspeed in stock at the moment.

Thanks

Ross

Lundsford makes titanium hinge pins. Man how hard do they have to hit something to snap a pin. Ive bent some and broken tons of mounts but to snap a pin is a hard thing to do.

Hi guys,
But as the D2 has longer hinge pins, standard tc3 ones wont fit.
