Default LOsi 8 CVD Pin Replacement Press From Geo-y-rock

I bought a pin press to replace worn cvd pins on my losi 8 driveshafts from
Geo Y-Rock on here.. I finally got to use it, and Had to say, it was the easiest tool to use, and workd with no effort.. took not even 5 min to put new pin in my cvd.. Definitly recommend it to anyone,, Save a ton of money, by replacing the pins..

The Hudy one works very well. Innovative Designs also makes one that Carolinas and Amain carries. Its called the IDRC Bonesaver. Worth every penny.

I had to make a new screw for my Bonesaver. The idea is good but the hardware need to be upgraded a bit I think. Maybe Grade 8 instead.

Is this common for all brands or is it a weakness in the Losi armour ?
