How do you replace the pins? Is there an easy method for this?

But if you are replacing 2 pins then it is not worth investing on a tool that cost US$122.00, cvd shaft are so cheap nowadays that you would want to just replace the whole shaft.

In my entire RC life experience, I have never seen a pin on a dogbone or driveshaft break at all. Usually the part that fails is the out drive or drive cup that receives the dogbone/driveshaft is the one that would fail in breakage of the outdrive or severe wear, hence the need for the plastic blades on the pins.

For the guys running low profile servos, have you managed to mount the throttle servo below the top deck?

Looks like the only option is to dremel quiet abit of the plastic to get them to fit.

Low profile servos are generally 20grams lighter then your normal servos, so running two in the car saves 40grams of static weight.

Also, you can mount the low profile servos under the top deck, which signifantly drops the centre of gravity.
