The Tamiya balls are metric- 5mm.....you will have a very hard time using a 4.3mm ball cup!!

on the TL01 they are 3mm (I think). So will rpm ball cups and tie rods and turnbuckles fit a TL01?

No kidding, I have thumbs of steel now after diassembling/reassembling my mission a few times. Holy cow those things take some force to get on and off.

In one crash, I hit hard enough split the lower front A-arm off the hinge pin, but all the ball cups were still securely fastened everywhere.
