    TL;DR
    Im looking for some steel pins that are approximately 4.15mm in diameter. I haven't measured the length but they are in the ball park of 50mm long. Where can I find metal in an odd size like this?


    I have an RC car that uses hardest steel pins for the suspension. I drew a red arrow pointing to where one of the pins is. The stock pins are 4mm and hardened steel. I've seen people replace them with titanium so I'm not convinced the hardening is required.

    There is a little slop in the suspension that should be a lot better if all the pins were a little larger.

    You might try some oversized 4mm drill rod and cut your own.

    Cutting my own isn't a problem but what is this oversized thing? My interwebz searches don't turn up much
