This is a set of two optional M2C Racing Tapered Hinge Pins. Made from hardened 01 Tool Steel, these hinge pins reduce friction and allow the arm and shock to react faster. The design of these hinge pins will allow either the arm and pin to rotate in the bushing, or the arm will rotate around the pin, whichever has the least amount of resistance. Also, the unique tapered ends of these hinge pins allows the pin to rotate freely even when the pin is bent.

Well i just bought a pair of these after my stock inner hinge pins got bent on my RC8T and im impressed with the quality of them and they really are smoother when mounted into the arms for sure ! The price for them are really good .
I can tell if you crack a supension arm or take a hard hit these will not bend . Now yea there not coated with like the stock RC8T pins but actually these are smoother .
Awesome hinge pins! I had a rear a-arm break during a race and the pin had slid out a stress crack in the arm. It was sitting there looking bent, pushing up against the area where it just came out of. I thought it would be permanently bent. I there was so much pressure on it I could not slide the pin the rest of the way out of the arm, so I just took a large cutter and cut part of the broken arm off. As soon as I cut it, and got that plastic out of the way, the M2C pin straightened right out on its own! I couldn't believe it. I was worried because I knew I had spare arms with me, but no spare hinge pins. I put the replacement arm on with the M2C pin and went back out for the Main no problems. Note: I am using these on an Agama A8 EVO as well - they are an exact match, for anyone looking for a more superior hinge pin for that buggy as well.
Bought these because of the reviews from RC TEch about the front hinge pins that come with the kit bend so easy. After 1 club race and 1 bobble they where done ! It's amazing that LOSI didn't see this during testing. They should offer free replacements to all the bought a kit and send to us free of charge. So far these hinge pins are awesome, they fit the stock inserts both front and back and move more freely. Even had a couple of bobbles during practice, so I removed the braces to inspect the pins and they are perfectly fine. Good Buy IMO !
