Nothing better than the stock ball cups...if you got a bit of play just do what AdrianM has suggested...put a bit of a plastic bag on the ball stud and then press the ballcup into the ballstud--it'll cut out a perfect piece and stick inside the cup and take the play away...if you need more add a second layer...they'll last a really long time

I've been using the RPM ball cups, purple ones to match the rest of the car With the new Ti balls they are sometimes even too tight, I had to pinch them with pliers to make them loose enough.
So, if you don't like slop in the ball cups, try the RPM ones.

Hi guys, I just had my first foam tire race on my Mi3 yesterday and I have to give props to McGoo for his setup. It was dialed! There was only two of us in the foam stock class as rubber is king of carpet down here in FL but I had a blast.

Any advice on what to change on very cold asphalt?

I was running Mod at West London, it was around 5 degC with damp in places.

During the second final things got worse as the car tried to spin mid corner on sweepers etc. I ran RP24's that were heated a lot before the race.

Nothing special in the setup, but the spinning made me a danger to other cars and it was very frustrating and inconsisitant..

Front;
40W
Med Roll Bar
310gf/mm Springs
1mm RC's

Rear;
35W
Thin Roll Bar
250gf/mm Springs

2mm & 2.5mm RC's

Tried moving the rear shocks in and out, in was the worst!

Thanks
Skiddins

try dropping some shims in at the pivot blocks to lower your rear arms down

best bet is probobly to lower your rear roll center or put 45wt in the front
