I guess I'm waiting for the free set from you.

color01 would you tell us more about it? Thank You.

I like the fact that you don't have to disassemble much to change the springs AND that this operation finally doesn't involve removing the knuckle.

I'm no engineer but i do know gold is very soft. Not the stuff you want to use in a high wear area. On the other hand, ti is what they coat the best drill bits and other machine tools to make them last.

I am 99% sure that Cristian will clarify that this is Titanium Nitride Plated like Losi shock shafts and like skyler mentioned many drill bits are.

Hi skyier,
yes, its a coating of
titanium nitride that has a gold color. I have over 200 of them in my shop.
they last up to six times longer than standard bits and penetrate 50%
faster, use less power, and more. I would just like to get color01's take on
on this. I thank you for yours.

I would just like to chime in and say that I agree with everyone that this product looks killer. It's great that every product Cristian releases you get the biggest bang for your buck.

Hey MantisMMA (Marcus),
Can you shed some light on the kingpin coating, is it gold plating or
titanium nitride coating???

Thank You!

So I don't see it explicitly stated anywhere in the thread (although there seems to be a lot of assumptions) that this is in fact an 02 kingpin. I'm inclined to think it's not, otherwise Christian wouldn't really have a product to sell, as people would just be adding 02 kingpins, springs and cups and calling it a day. Don't have an 03 in front of me, so I can't really tell however...

Anyway, it's pure brilliance. Once you see it, you slap your forehead and say 'why didn't I think of that'?

CT, if Kyosho offers you a job, don't take it. Although... Japanese chicks are pretty cute...

it is titanium nitride coating and we are working on some even better combinations of matl/coatings. Stainless is the worst matl for kingpinz point blank, i dont know why the companies keep making them out of that matl, doesnt make sense to me?????

the 02 kingpins are nothing like the 03's!! the system is designed to use the std length 02 springs or the lowdowns with some shims.
