does anybody know of any better rod ends(ballcups) that can be used with the standard turn-buckles on the tcx as i don't like the amount of play you get on the hpi heavy duty ball cups which i now have on my steering as the original ones are useless?

I used Assoc. TC6/6.1 rod ends. They may be a little tight but once broke in they are very good. I've also used RPM rod ends.

i have used the tc6 ends on my servo to the centre and really like them, very little play but i found they were to short for the rest of the car and the RPM ones are to short for the steering

Longer turnbuckles help with the Assoc. rod ends but RPM make different lenght ball cups.

I always use the original HPI / HB are great, if they develop a little play, is easily reduced by using a small drop of CA glue into the plastic uniball.
