Don't underestimate the benefit of bent body pins!

I added a DBXL-e 2.0 to my Arrma-heavy collection recently and it came with 2 body pins that were bent right at the end - so the end loop is bent up and doesn't lie flat on the surface of the body when it's inserted.

I haven't found these on any of my other cars, so just wanted to mention to people who don't have them - they make a big difference in how easy they are to use! Much easier to put in an pull out. All my rubber tethers break right away and I don't even use them anymore. So I bought a bag of bent ones off amazon for all my arrmas.

One almost free, tiny improvement to what I find to be one of the most annoying aspects of RC cars.

Yeah the bent ones are good. I have a few with metal tabs too, those work way better than the rubber ones. But they are relatively expensive compared to the bent pins.

If it ain't broke, you're doing it wrong.

I wish they made left and right ones though as my ocd kicks into overdrive having to have the pins sit the same way on either side of the car. I guess I am weird and I like the pins to a mirror image of each other as they are on different sides of the car.

Thought it was just me that was that anal!
