so i finally got the 7151x..... i was looking around at it, and an issue concerns me... if i lose or bust the rubber band, the pin will fall out.... does anyone have a solution or remedy to this? i am going to the hardware store tomorrow so i might look there for some spring roll pins, i might even already have some from my old rc cars

I am still with the rings, and they come with 4x spares, but as soon as they go away I am going to heatshrink also !

I have no issues with the pin flying out running parallel 3s with Integy or Trax CVDs, but I would periodically inspect the O Rings for wear and tear because they do crack. I also would grease the O ring lightly so it retains it's softness everytime I re-oil my wheel bearings. I've replace the O Rings with 3M Dental bands couple of times (3 Mervs here had Integy/Trax CVDs one time or the other), and they held up well. We got our CVDs pretty early and they did not come with extra O Rings, and one of the O Ring broke out of the box brand new from Trax.

i installed one in the knuckle today, and even if the oring fails, it still looks as if the knuckle will keep the pin captured... i am not too worried about it now... thanks for the help! smile.gif
