hi i was wondering if anyone had attempted replacing the dogbone drive pin which looks to be a pressfit thru the ball of shaft on most rc's. i think its made of spring steel as its not as hard as out drives. the pins diameter is 3 mm x 13 mm long its worn almost 1 mm.still a bit to go until it breaks i think. if you have done this where in sydney can i buy the rod to make pins.thanks

I used a 2.5mm drill bit on my Revo cvds I used to run. Used a 2mm drill bit to bash the worn one out and then cut the 2.5mm one and shoved it into the shaft. Was real easy for the first three but the last one gave me heaps of trouble. Eventually got it though.

Also you have to cut the end of the drill bit with something like a dremel or similar. Hacksaw will get you nowhere.

The Hot Bodies Lightning uses 3mm x 17mm drive pins, just grab a set of them and cut it down to the desired length. When you insert the new pin, use Red Loctite to set the pin in place.

I think the Vorza and D8 also use the same 3 x 17 pins.
