    It should say in the full description check the listing where it says "includes" but all hinge pin sets should come w/ hardware to secure them, I went w/ the pro 2 hinge pin set and done some hard bashing and not 1 little bend or ding and honestly I like the lock nuts better then e clips

    Got me,I hate those clip things,In the pic for the T Maxx pins,it shows you the clips,the others don't,I don't care for pro line,but like XR I by there hardened pl kits. As a rule,ill get three weekends off racing out off a set before there shot.
    Plus the lhs carries them for $20.

    They do come with the dreaded e-clips. As bad as those slippery suckers are the pins make up for it. I have them on my Slash 4x4.

    E-clips are easy to get on..
    Only when you have needle nose pliers..

    I might try strc pin set next, but yea their easy to get on that's what I used was needle nose but their so weak and bend easily, I'd rather just use a lock nut hardened steel set and not have to worry about them possibly backing out

    I like that Duratrax E-clip tool.... Thanks for the find.... Need to add to the "to buy list".

    I personally use the STRC hinge pin set up and haven't bent or have one come loose yet. They are a bit pricey but you will most likely not loose or bend one.... Notice I didn't say never!!! It's about murphy's law. LOL
