Or have extras.
My wheel hex must have lodged itself into a one of the street wheels.
Popped the dirt wheels on for some bashing, pull trigger, motor spins, car doesn't move.
Thought the slipper clutch needed tightening.
Took a closer look and no pin.
Dropped in apiece from a paper clip to reinforcements arrive...

Hi

I had one snap in two on me so I went to the local hardware store and got 4 tiny roll pins for about a $1.

Took your advice and stopped at local Ace, and they took out their immense and intense faster section to make room for more yard decos, like gnomes, sheesh!


Indeed an often overlooked part.
This is a wise spare part to keep in your tool-case, which you bring with you when bashing :cool:
I have not been good about bringing a pit bag, time to shed the bad habit...

Tools, duck-tape, tie-wraps, a hobby-knife, pair of long pliers, cleaning brush, piece of cloth....and some spare parts like these, wheel nuts, body pins....you will regret your bashing session once you do not have these at hand, and you need to go back to home for it ;)
