Have a close look at your brace, i spat a pin out and the brace looked ok, the bush was gone also, i had a closer look at the brace and it had a crack in it, was very hard to notice. Using the alum brace and the losi hinge pins cut to 46mm and i cant see how it can ever happen again.

+1, that is exactly what happened to my buggy. Popped the pin out, the bushing split, the block appeared to be fine and then I looked real close and saw a hairline crack. Glad mugen is making a factory hop up option for this piece.

Could be a combination of things happening. The upper pins being 1mm or 2mm too short and the holder having 1mm or 2mm of flex all adds up.

The new alloy holder seems like it would fix it even with the stock pins i would think.

I was taking the front of the buggy apart today and noticed that the pinion has cut a groove in the diff case. the mesh as good but the pinion is very close to the case. Any thoughts

question for anyone using the stock pistons in the shocks, i have to screw the spring collar on the shocks farther down the shock to get the ride height level, if i go by the setup up sheet with the kit, the car sits to low, how many mm's are you screwing down on your shocks, front and rear?

You didnt shim the pinion did you? I would think that is the only way that could happen.

Jlo, off the top of my head I am not sure how many mm's of preload I have but just turn the collars until your ride height is rear arms level, and front arms slightly above level. This is a good starting point.

Anytime. The only shimming that may be required is a shim on either side of the ring gear, and depending on the fit inside the bulkhead you may not need any at all. Good luck and enjoy the car.

A mate of mine in the local hobby shop the other day found some 4mm x 46mm hinge pin shafts made by HPI. These fit perfect and save you cutting Losi hinge pins. Also make sure you use the correct plastic bushing inserts, use the ones without the hole in the other end of them.

had my car down to 3250 grams pulled the lipo out and put in the nimh which was 40 grams heavier and the car was better. the springs that are avail. right now are too stiff for that light of a car. we have three more softer rates and a 2.6 rear bar comiing.
