    Bent suspension pin

    I was taking my Maxx apart to install the Wide Maxx kit and found the rear suspension pin, part 8941, was bent. I'm not sure when it actually happened, although a full speed, 20 yard cartwheel is likely the culprit.

    I wouldn't have even noticed because I kept driving for another 10-15 minutes and there were no signs of any problems. The fact that that's the only part that was damaged is pretty impressive, I was sure I was going to be done for the day. Unfortunately I still am while Traxxas ships a replacement, my hobby shop doesn't stock many replacement Maxx parts.

    Has this part bent for anyone else?

    Haven’t had any issues with the stock suspension pins yet. I also just picked up the wide kit and just for piece of mind I’ve ordered part#8940x. Might want to look into it if you drive your truck hard.
