They are the RPM Heavy Duty - Red.

Matt's aluminum parts by Trinity are also red. He is in to red.

Same sites I gave you.

PIORC--I personally take the plastic bag from a parts bag, and cut a 2 mm square from it. You then take the square and poke it in the ball cup and then snap onto the ball. I have used this for years in off-road and the past 2 years running my XXXS. This small piece of plastic inside the ball cup will tighten up the joint but not cause any bind. My $.02. Good Luck

P.S. I have seen other racers in my area using RPM ball cups and they always seem to rup the front wheels.

Hi Jrxs Bill, Indoors on wooden floors tend to be very slipppy and it is normally Schumacher Yellow mini pins ( 21mm narrow ones ) and the car set soft with some roll.

Hope this helps

Hey guys,

I was going to ask about ball cups also. The rpm website shows the xxx-s needing the long ones. Yet when I look at mine they sure don't look long.

Thanks Bryan. I appreciate your input. Soft settings make a lot of sense. Will be at the track to spectate on Monday, January 31. Hope to be able to come back in a couple months for a longer stay and have a go at it. Thanks again.

Run the belt tension as loose as you can without it skipping. I personally run my belt tension pretty tight in stock and 19t to get a bit of extra rip off of the corner. But in mod I set it only as tight until it doesn't skip too much under mild to heavy braking.

Is your motor (and pinion) in place?

Then, what does "shimmed the drivetrain" mean?

Interesting...I haven't been concerned about that side play. Could the shims be placing a side load on your outdrive bearings and/or rubbing internally?
