He got the Spec kit so it has 10k and 5k oils.

I am building my 410R as we speak. Are the stock ball cups, turnbuckles, and balls junk? How come everyone is replacing them?

they're not junk, just a little soft. Some people have been running the stock cups with no problems. People have to replace the balls as well because they not the regular AE/losi size, they're a bit bigger. RPM makes some cups that fit the kit balls but I don't remember the part #.

I can see changing the stock steel turnbuckles and heard the stock ball cups pop off easily . I`ll run mine the first time this week[hoping Wed. but probably Sat] and see how everything goes .

We don`t have any hug jumps and IF I stay on all fours I might use the stocks for a bit .

I am still running the stock ball cups with no issues, adjusting them can be hard sometimes because they pop off when turning the turnbuckle but I just put a little black grease on the threads and worked them in a little so it's easier to adjust them on the car. Plus I would rather pop a ball cup off during a race if I hit something then break it!!

The "R" kit comes with 2k diff oil....

I bought my kit in July and it came with 250cst shock oil and 2k diff fluid. I did not use them.

[QUOTE=Matt Howard;8055018]Lunsford turnbuckles, losi white ball cups and AE TC5 ball studs.

Hey Matt, Were you able to use one or two different lengths of the TC5 ball studs? Also were you able to use the stock lock nuts to secure the ball studs?

I am not near my car or otherwise I could probably figure it out

My stock cups were fine until the other day. I hit a parked car (hidden behind a marshal), and the one of the camber links refused to stay on the car from that point on.

I honestly don't remember what lengths they were. The stock locknuts will work with the TC5 ones since they're both metric and the same threads. I used Ofna gold ones to add the extra "bling"
