i think the bad and the ugly are that there arnt that many out there and parts are expensive to replace. the good is because theyre not as popular theyre pretty cheap. i almost bought a set once for only $300 spindles and arms, but i bailed when i started pricing out what the rebuild cost would be.

Yeah, I think they are very rare. Did you find a set?

Yea, I've found a set. I just haven't decided if I want to pursue them or not. They are brand new and un-used at a good price. They would be for my LSR build, and being the OCD person that I am, having LSR T-Pin's would add to my complete LSR R (having all LSR parts imagineable, sad I know). We'll see though... I just wanted to see everyone's opinions on them and see if it would be worth it or not.

My teammate Bobby works for LSR, and they're here in town. I could forward him this thread and see if he has any "inside" info.

If you found a set that is new and you are planning on getting new a-arms anyway, I'd say that would be pretty damn sweet. Of course the 450 spindles and brake adapters that you just go would be useless to you now.

They'd be going on my LSR DC-4 arms and I think it'd be pretty cool to have something so rare/different. And the fact that they are new would mean that I wouldn't have to repair/rebuild them for quite a while (I would hope). I've found out that the 450R spindles on LSR arms won't allow for enough camber adjustment, especially for MX. Besides, I bought them thinking they were a 400EX setup and kind of got screwed from the get go. Needless to say I'll be passing those on to someone else. I will probably end up keeping the adaptors though.

Hey Wesley, I still got a set of these with plus 3 LT arms from the previous LSR R's I have owned. These are rare as it did not sell very well and were very expensive (sumthing like $2500 from an old LSR price book I have WITHOUT arms :eek: ). They are built very well BUT heavy compared to the stock spindles. They worked flawlessly for me in the dunes and desert. Parts to rebuild these are hard to get, if any, thus the reason I have them on the shelf. I might consider selling these as these would make for a good spare if not for parts alone.

$2500, I thought the laeger t-pin was expensive, but alteast you get a-arms, spindles, complete tie-rods and a steering stem. I have a laeger t-pin on my 250r and a roll lobo on my hybrid, I like the t-pin much better. How much is a complete rebuild for the lsr t-pin, the laegers cost me something like $400 and I did all the labor, use of a press at a machine shop I know, cost me a case of beer, so I guess labor cost me $20.

What do you like better about the t-pin?

LSR had discontinued these and any spare parts for a long time now. Unfortunately, you almost have to buy another set just for parts OR if you have access to machining equipment or cnc machines OR a buddy who does :)
