use some chapstick, or grease, or wax on the turnbuckle threads when threading on the ball cups. Then they won't twist off when making adjustments.

I wish my ballcups popped off easier. Yesterday my car took a hit in the left rear and broke the tranny case tab for the ballstud mount.

You broke a factory ball stud in that position?

Sounds like he broke the tranny case where the ball stud mounts to, not the actual ballstud.

Ya, broke the tranny case. Got aluminum mounts being made for mounting the ballstuds. The mount will be attached at the shock tower mount screws. Will need to remove the plastic on the tranny case. It will also have two mounting holes instead of one. No more worries about braking that mount again.

Finally finished my buggy completly.
That was quite hard to make the paint tape stick and avoid the colors to overlap. Not my best, but it'll do.

And if you didn't guess it, I'm a Steeler supporter 8D

The hardware is Savox 1256tg, Turnigy Nano-tech 5600mAh, LRP SXX Comp and LRP Stock Spec 13.5t.
