I got that one in with the spare parts I bought.

You wouldn't happen to know when Losi is gonna put the new ballcups up for sale sepearatly do you, I want to replace mine, but since replacing ballcups sucks, I'd rather just put the new ones on now.

Hey Guys,
How are you dealing with the slop factor of the xxx-s?
Washers between arms and hubs?
Also, do you know if the team associsated ball cups for the tc-3 will fit on the graphite plus?

Thanks in advance;


Adrian

Use thin motor shims to shim the arm slop, .003, .005, .010 shims should be the ones you use. The losi ball cups should be fine although I would think the AE ones would fit if you really wanted to use them. If you can find them on the shelves the new losi white ball cups are slop free and arent overly tight.

My orders from there are usually well over $100, so the 5.95 doesnt bother me much..
