Default Mp-777 shocks coming apart

I feel like this question has been asked a million times, but I've searched and came up with very little. I have aftermarket threaded body shocks on this buggy and after a couple laps with 3-4 3-4 ft. jumps the plastic end that attaches to the a-arm comes out. Is the plastic ball end just stripped or is there another solution? Do they make aluminum ends, and is this a needed/popular upgrade? Thanks all!

I would venture to say the Ball ends or plastic ends your Using aren't the proper parts and are essentially too big Not allowing the Threads to "Bite" into the plastic to hold on for very Long. Where did you buy these shocks ?

Did they Ever work for more than a couple laps ?


Are you using the Droop screw's ? Or better yet does the 777 have droop screws ?
