Wildcat, did you ever post that video of your ball cups binding before and after polishing?

I just bent my first turnbuckle and ordered Lunsford replacements. Figured I might as well polish all the balls up while I've got everything off.

Did you just throw the threads in a drill and spin on some polish and a rag? Dremel with polishing tip? Drill and high grit count wet sand?

Hello everyone,
I did not know where to put this but I have chosen Losi as my 2014-2015 Chassis Sponsor! I have been doing a lot of testing and saw you all are very anxious to find out what im doing. The 22 style cars really fit my driving style and can push them harder than ever. Thanks guys for the support.

I used a dremal. It will chuck right up into the colar. And it went ok....a week later it was binding again. Another local used a ball cup reamer and has report ball cup perfection. He used a 4mm one from tunigy, but some members cut a couple groves in old studs, popped them into the cup and ran it low speed. This is my next plan of attack. Sanding was "ok" and better than stock, but still lacking IMO. I have a bigger type local race this weekend and need to go through 3 cars. If I have time I will try the ball cup reamer method. Maybe even borrow one for that local racer.

To believe or not to believe. I choose not to believe. Nice try though. It would be released by TLR first and not on RCtech with a cheazy name.

Yea, "i did not know where to put this..." um pretty sure the PR/Marketing folks at TLR would have told you where and probably wouldnt have been the AE b5m thread... nice effort tho, but really who has the time to make fake names and do that

Default body- cut lines

Anyone have a rear right side pic with body?. I'm just finishing up building my b5m, but it looks like motor will be outside of body(stock body)?

I also have proline phantom body. Looks a bit wider rear so motor maybe fit inside if not trimmed at cut line.

Interesting.

I'll probably just give them a quick polish on a dremel then.

To the extreme I wonder how well taking them to a machine shop to remove a thousandth around might help.

That's way above what I'm willing to put into an area I don't see a problem, I get way more binding at the pins. Just assuming that might be ideal. Though what the heck is a ball cup reamer? Just opens the cup rather than working on the ball?

it lightly shaves off a little material from inside the cup. They make arm reamers also, if your arms are binding. My arms are free, but my cup bind.

im sure for the money its decent, but i guarantee they arent the same quality as lunsford. The TLR ones were also of low quality, and were even more expensive than those.

well my track started misting. and now my steel screws are getting surface rust. I might get these for low stress areas. WD40 does not seem to be keeping the rust monster at bay
