I think I broke a pin in my rear diff last night

Between that and spitting out front upper hinge pins I am pretty frustrated.

It happens on the MBX5T sometimes. It happens on the MBX5R too. Mugen increased the size of the pin from 2.0mm to 2.2mm on the MBX6 so they are aware of the problem and have indeed tried to remedy it.

I had a mbx5r for two seasons, about 20 races and numerous practice sessions and the diffs never presented any problem like that...

People are using losi pins and cutting them to 46mm to help the problem of them popping out.

Your welcome

See I used to get upset when I would post about a legitimate problem and within minutes someone would come in and say"Ive never heard of this, you must be doing something wrong". Sorry but now I just dish it back.

Every single part on every buggy can and will break. The pin does not break often but it breaks often enough that Mugen upsized it.

By the way I was no more rude than you were by insinuating it was my fault.

i Had the upper pin holder break after 2 mins on mine....no parts at the LHS yet and I wanted to run it so.....

I did a little mod with 5r upper holders drilling 2 more holes on the upper brace and was able to race without and more pin issues. Plus it seemed to free up the front end at the bottom of the shock stroke. This car is insane with steering So far so good.

Ok and I gave you good advice for your legitimate problem of having your upper hinge pins popping out. I know that the mbx6 is having this issue. However, you said you broke the pin in your rear diff, how can anyone give you any advice on this? Other than someone saying buy a new pin and re-build the diffs...
