i have a problem with bending my hinge pins and i was wondering if getting titanium hing pins will really make a difference.

Where are these pins on the emaxx. I just took apart my suspension and I see none of those.

stock ones look like this...
actually, im pretty sure stainless steel hinge pins will be stronger than the titanium ones. the only reason why titanium is thought to be better is because they cost more, bla bla bla. hopefully someone can post more about this.

I bent 3 of the 4 hinge pins in the front suspension after my first week with the Maxx. I bought the Lunsford titanium pins and they are still straight and true after almost 5 months of bashing. If you are using RPM A-Arms, you will need to modify the A-Arm slightly to accept the Lunsfords. Nothing a dremel and 5 minutes cant handle however.
I would also tend to think the stainless steel pins would be stronger than the titaniums, but from what ive experienced its the other way around.
