Got all the 4.0 parts onto my Weight forward chassis conversion. Looking forward to the extra steering.

I also wanted to show the hinge pin mod i do to my cars. Instead of running the losi hinge pins i use 3/16" tool steel. The losi arms are so strong they bend the hinge pins instead of breaking the arm. Because of this your able to drill out the holes to take a thicker pin.

I buy 3/16" tool steel blanks and cut them down to the same length as the stock pins. I then use a 3/16" drill to upen up the hole and then follow that with a 5mm drill to clean the hole out and give a smooth hinge action on the pin. I've found that the easiest way to drill ut the hinge pin plate bushings is to install them into a plate and then drill them out slowly with the 5mm drill. By doing it in the plate the drill stops when it hits the aluminium and doesn't go right through the bushing. If you go right through the bushing your best to throw it away. If you use it the pin moves and i did blow the cover off the hinge pin plate once in a crash because there was no plastic between the pin and the plate to absorb the impact.

Heres a pic of the thicker pin and the thicker pin in the arm

There was a question earlier about the rear arms hitting the diff housing. I didn't have that problem, but the standard setup calls for 0 pills to make the rear kick up 3 degrees, so that is what I used. The bag that has those parts in it has 0 and 1 pills, which will make it 4 degrees of kick up if you put the 1's up in front. I can see where they might hit if you set it at 4 degrees. Looks like a little grinding would fix it though.

Looks like another spring set to go with the new arms. Anyone know of a release date? AMain doesn't show them as of yet. I guess that is why Maifield is running Hot Body springs.

Mayfield's PNB setup is interesting, quite a way from the stock setup.

http://www.tlracing.com/ProdInfo/Fil...Loamy_2016.pdf

Less front kick up, big rear swaybar, heavier diff oils, hot bodies springs. I'm guessing that he's us in the shock retainers from the 1/2.0

I read the fronts were shorter to get better ride heights. Yet I've never seen a setup with anyone running lower than 38mm. I've tried to run lower but had no success.

What was the deal with the springs? Didn't they say the old ones would still work?
