Default Pin replacement tool

Does anyone know where i can find replacement parts of the pin replacement tool? Today while removing a pin, the pin on the tool cracked and I can't see any replacement part...
Thanks!

is that on the hudy pin replacement tool?
if you like pink you should give these pink socks on the left a try they would match your body and keep out the dust too

cheers

If there is enough demand for an upgrade pack im sure it will happen. Most of the parts can be inter changed so it can be swapped as & when you require.

missing me were you..hehe..I'm slumming in the Uk for xmas at my Mom's eating way too much and generally slobbing.must have missed a notification using her stupid pc and hence didn't get any more.thought you guys were just away for the hols.I forget as I'm signed into rctech at home 24/7 so it's never an issue.
Once I'm home better hope the snow is gone and I can start work on our track..only got till march 19th for the first race and then April 24th our first national in 1/8 with 150+ drivers expected.
I'm thinking of just buying a 2011 kit for nitro and moving the 2010 bulkheads etc onto the brushless 808 till I run out of bearings then swop that too..depends on money.At the moment it's simple as I don't have any so I'm gonna be stuck running the current setup for a while.I'm just gonna buy the rear alu supports for my nitro and put my current alu ones onto the brushless.The brushless here is once again staying as an "unofficial" class for 2011 so less pressure and worries about the reliability of the buggy.
I think 2011 is going to see a lot more 808's on podiums worldwide.I think the new changes will totally fix the one or two tiny niggles with this car.

I LOVE MY 808-I LOVE MY 808

I think I feel a 2011 kit coming on for next season. My trusty old upgraded 08 model is due for a restful (well maybe not so restfull ) retirement from racing.

GREAT to hear. They have offered upgrade kits for the last two revisions, (09 and 10) so I would expect an '11.

I'll be buying a new '11 for nitro, and hopefully getting an '11 upgrade kit for my '09 808e.

BTW, LOVE the new body. Looks sleek and not bulbous like the bulldog bodies. Reminds me of the Toyota GT-One on-road car.





Similar, no?

How do those shock socks affect the overall function of the shock? I been thinking of doing that just to keep the shock clean longer but the sock affects the performance of the shock then I would prefer to steer away from it.

I ripped off all my shock boots. I did notice that the car had a better "feel"to it.

Felt heavier, less floaty.

I haven't noticed any adverse O-ring wear or leaking.

Thats expected I would think since you since you makes for less resistance against uptravel. I know a few that do that to get better uptravel.

I was referring to the shock socks that aussie is using.

It keeps the dust and shit INSIDE instead of letting it out. Stay away. I use balloons for shock-socks instead of the original. It breaks too fast. Balloons are cheaper and comes in those porncolers, pink, red and yellow :-)
