    Lunsford hinge pins + PE alloy hubs/castor blocks

    I bought a full Lunsford set for my Slash a while back and I have 2 spare hinge pins. I cannot for the life if me work out where they go. I had 4 long and 4 short ones. Obviously the long ones go where the a arms meet the diff housing and 2 of the short ones go on the outside of the rear a arm/hub carrier assembly but where do the last 2 go? I can't work out if they go in the front a arm/castor blocks or not. I can't see how they could possibly go in. If I put them in place of the hex screw I can only get 1 clip on and they will simply fall out. I'll attach a pic so you know what I mean.

    Also, do the Lunsford pins work ok with the alloy hubs/blocks that come on the PE Slash? I've been looking at getting a full set soon.

    There are three different sizes in that kit. The four long ones mount all the control arms to the chassis. The 2 medium ones mount the castor blocks to the front and the 2 short ones mount the hubs in the back. I have this same kit plus the toe links. Oh and yes they work fine with the aluminum hubs and casters.

    Hmmm, might have to do a partial disassembly and see if I've got my wires crossed.

    I turns out I had the medium pins at the rear so I swapped them but instill can't work out how the others go in. They can't go through the a arm to the castor block as it doesn't exit the other side. Care to post pics for me cos I'm still stumped.

    Troy711, I'm looking to buy the lunsford hingepins to avoid the fronts backing out but I see the same problem you mention here, did you ever resolve this? Anyone have any ideas?
