    Yolk Pins

    So I realized today that my Yolk Pin came out in the middle of a gentle run. Seems to be a common issue because it's happened before. This leaves me with two important questions I hope members can help me out with:
    The first question is what are the strongest Yolk Pins on the market that will work my Drivecups and Traxxas Steel CVDs. I'd rather not have to find myself replacing a broken one.....because......
    My second question is would it be a good idea to use Red Loctite with the Yolkpins because if one does break on me, i'd like to be able to remove it easily. I know that Loctite Blue 242 is a good strength grade, but I found only high strength Red Loctite in my drawer that I got from Lowes, or Home Depot, forget which one, anyways, so should I not use the red Loctite as it would make it really hard, possibly causing me to strip the head on the Yolk Pin?
    This is a new area i'm getting into, ...... finding the best Yolk Pins for my drivecups and CVDs....any help and suggestions will go a long way, thanks !

    The Yolk Pin that came out was the one that was included in the FLM Chassis Kit 10900 with the included Drivecups. I think those YolkPins are the same size as the Traxxas ones that are installed in my Traxxas Steel CVDs but I could be wrong. Anybody have any suggestions for the upgrade of the YolkPins that hold the drivecups into the Driveshafts?

    Generally blue Loctite is good enough, if you have to use the red, you can use a soldering iron to heat up the pin & break down the Loctite's bond to help from stripping out the hex in the pin.

    If your using dog bone's or CVD's either UE or RC Monster cups are the best you can buy.

    Thanks soo much ! Blue loctitie it is, either Loctite 242 or 243...the 243 is newer and a tad bit more expensive but works with dirtier applications....
