If they are only finger tight, that may be the problem also.

I snug mine down with a pair of pliers after I'm done. RPM makes a wrench that is helpful though..

Check out www.skipgear.com. They have some tips on building the Losi shocks.

Default Hop-ups

Also, if you want blue parts, try http://www.rc-mushroom.com. They have GPM parts and you could make your XXXS nearly all blue

About ball cups...
They are toooo tight when you first use them and cause the car to not center properly even with a high end digital servo
if you use a dremel to break them in, the quickly become sloppy...

any suggestions?

Well, I'm just wondering the quality of the product by either Trinity or Dynamite. They all produce the same products, the style might be a bit different. Price-wise, Trinity stuff are a bit more expensive.

Any opinions?

This is STLNLST----Trinity is always more expensive but if you're looking to get roll center blocks or front or rear pivot blocks the speed tech blocks are by far the way to go.

what i have always done to losi ball cups when i first get them is grab them with a pair of heavy duty pliers and "work" them back and forth a little bit, this will free them up enough to have a bind free suspension.
