Still threads I plenty far but a tad shorter than the standard 2". All cups are as smooth as can be.
Very good call...with Lunsfords, the 1 7/8" are perfect for the cambers, and the 2" are perfect for the steering with no binding.

Kits ball cups are best ever, just keep um clean.

Two sides for the dirt to get inside now.

Some may be surprised just how much dirt is in there cups.

I must've been a baller...I had a Deans plug and a whole "stock" gearbox put together back in the day, ha. It helped when breaking a motor in, too...I could just put my 2 cell pack on it and walk away
Oh, the good old days.

Yeah, I think I'm going to switch to Durango cups and studs if I keep running this car outdoors. Wish I could get a Foam Thing on both sides.

The "mod of the week" is cutting a big hole in the bottom of the chassis to allow battery changes through bottom and adjust chassis flex. All the team guys are doing it.

From what car/platform? Because the studs and ballcups from the 210/410 are the worst studs and ballcups on the market. I would run the Kyosho ballscups and lunsford studs if looking for an alternative.

Those running everything inline and trimming the plastic braces, are the hard plastics being used instead of the kit plastics?

Can use either, using plastic makes the most traction.
Suggest start with the plastic.
