Beautiful car though....definitely within target range
I believe this car does have open ended ballcups.

Looks like this is going to be a great car. I'd like to see a gear diff, but I think it's going to have a ball diff. Also, it would've been nice to have the arms not mounted to the bulkheads.

Bfong13 - look again brah, its easy to see that the *ball* of the ballstuds are encapsulated by the ballcups. No biggie, just a pita, LOL.

So you don't have to worry about bent bulkheads and such. Similiar to the Xray T3 and Tamiya 416x.

Which pics are you looking at? The initial ones at the beginning of this thread or the ones from the official AE press release?

The press release pics show open ball cups on everything except the bottom of the shocks. The initial pics had the older enclosed ball cups.

What's the advantage to using open-ended ball cups? Less slop?

Only because you dont weaken the ballcup through removal for setup changes/maintenance.
