Bear in mind that the RPM ball cups are available in both long and short shank versions.

I prefer the long versions. Harder to thread onto turnbuckles, but less chance of pulling out IMO.

Yeah, so, you're a dick. Cut the kid some slack, he can wheel pretty well. I was there this weekend and he was popping ball cups for no good reason, not because he was wreaking. Nice job trying to be witty though.

There are two types of ball studs.
Short neck and long neck.
If you have short neck ball studs in the wrong spot like an upward pointing ball for a camberlink, the linkage will bind due to too much travel and pop off the ball cup.
Make sense? Check it out.
I raced a long time before I was made aware of this.
