I might make a little video showing stock ball studs, polished studs and tlr cups and studs to try and demonstrate the differences in "freeness". Not this weekend though, lol. As I am moving.

Not a bad idea. I think I will just try some polishing compound first. I'm gonna make up a threaded drill bit chuck this weekend for the ball studs, if you want I'll make you an extra one.

Lunsford ball studs are awesome. No polishing and freer than the stockers that I spent a lot of time trying to get free.

hmm, that sounds like a good idea. Let me know how much. Sure beats smashing the threads in a drill.

I was thinking about trying those. Mainly for weight and strength. nice to know they are smoother also.

I assume you used these?

I can't believe people are complaining about having to massage some minor parts to get things freed up. The original rc 10 took about three days to remachine ALL the parts so things moved free. Wrenching is part of the hobby.

i was thinking of doing the same thing but just the ball studs. Use Flitz metal polisher and chuck it up in a drill. Spend the day polishing my balls....wait, that didn't sound right.

I imagine a 3mm threaded coupler would do the trick.
