The car is looking amazing and will have more revised parts than you would expect! Too bad Teemu was not cleared by the doctors yet.

Sorry JesseT, I got to go with RC Old Man!!! Schumacher has the best ball-cups on the planet!!! Drivers from almost every team (AE/Losi/Xray/etc) are using Schuy ball-cups. Atushi Hara was even using our ball-cups on his car for a number of races.

Don't let Teemu fool you on this one.....LOL

Over my years of owning Schumacher cars, I've popped off plenty of Schumacher's regular size ball cups. Ususally on the rear turnbuckle link. So I wouldn't say their the 'best' around. I think their just like every other ball cup on the market. Best when their new, not as good once they've been removed once or twice, and replace 'em when they age...

Now the upper camber link ball cups are a different story. I've never popped one of those off! They're bigger, stonger, and even after being removed a couple times, they still stay tight and friction free. Now those ARE the best I've seen!

After running Schumacher cars for soo long I will not use any other ball cup. They are the best plus they have the super cool name...."ball grippa's" cant beat it I have never had a problem with them popping off...wish I could say the same for other companies ball cups.

PW....that car looks very sweet cant wait to see one up close

I have had our ball cups on the bottoms of shocks with out changing them for a full year. I couldn't tell you how many times i poped them off and on and and they still hurt my fingers popping them on.

I'm with you guys - the ball grippas are the best - don't change em.
Plus with Mission you get a few spares with the kit as well which most others don't do.
