Just got my parts for rear end, axles, gears, mini spool, and all the bearings and misc parts. Should I run c-clip eliminators or just c-clips, and should I reuse the old pin or buy a new one for the mini spool.

its always a good idea to use c-clip eliminators you dont want to lose an axle and be out of the race or have it fly out and go through someone windshield.ive always reused the pin in a mini spool also unless you plan on doing 5500rpm holeshots they'll hold up

Ordered my parts thru Randy's Ring and Pinion. I'd highly recommend this place. Ordered last Thursday and got the stuff today. All the parts are Yukon. Which as I understand are name brand quality parts. There prices didn't seem bad to me. Their website is
Now the million dollar question: Are Yukon parts good?

If your track rules allow it I would highly recommend using the C-clip eliminators. Might seem like a pain in the rear (literally) when you are installing them but if you ever do break an axle you'll love how much easier it is to change it out. Some tracks even recommend them in their safety rules. Just my opinion!!

One question I have is would I have to have them on my spare axles?
