Rod ends

I have a RC10GT and keep popping off the tie rods. Currently using RPM ball cups. Would like to go to a bolt on type of rod end. Also using AE titanium turnbuckles. What is a good 4-40 rod end of this type?

You might want to think twice about doing the conversion, ball cups pop off because you hit something, but if there is nothing to pop off, you will end up with broken parts... With that said, Rocket City makes some really good captured ball ends, check them out.

if your ball ends pop off the same one over and over try replaceing them with new ones before putting bolt on,
