I got the links from page 96 on this thread. I don't know why they didn't work for me after pasting them here.

I also had the Pin Issue on one of my Front shaft's, Took a couple time's of it happening before i notched the pins and no more problems. As guys have said Don't go Too far or you'll weaken the pin.

Can't really feel a huge difference and Paul L would agree. New ones are more fragile so I have gone back to the std ones.

Notched pins is a worthy investment, Blue doesn't always hold the first time.

Hey guys, some people have been PM'ing me about the ECS wraps. Here is a video that will be linked to our website once it's live. This gives you an idea of what the wraps do and how to install them.

Like I said the website is not live yet, so PM me if you are interested.

This material is phenomenal! Travis Schreven finished 2nd in the 17.5 expert main event at the 2011 Snowbirds Nationals on a broken ECS using RC-Trim ECS wraps!

enjoy!
