Yeah , yeah, yeah ...
I'm still amaze just how swollen K-car seals can get just after a few weeks...

I will say both probably should be rebuilt about the same. Difference is one is because there is no oil left. I probably wouldnt mind the Associated ones so much if they were not such a pain to bleed. when are the caps coming!
I did notice the damping was gotten heavier since my RT5 has been relegated to shelf queen for now.

How often do you guys or girls change your Ball Cups and ball studs.

Are the Losi Grey Ball Cups any good or are the to Rigid ?

ive been using the white (natural) losi ball cups for quite some time now, they are very rigid and seem to grab the ball stud a bit tighter without much friction at all and takes a really long time to get sloppy.

When i was using the AE ball cups they would get sloppy fairly fast. Also an off tilt landing would sometimes shove the turnbuckle all the way into the ball stud.

In order to run the Losi ball cups you would either need to cut down the losi ball cups (i wouldnt bother) or get some shorter lunsfords or the like. I went and got the lunsfords because the combination of those and the white losi cups = unstoppable.

I havent tried the Jconcepts yet.
The RPM's hold on too tightly to the ball studs and causes binding in my experience.

jconcepts ballcups are the best. i rolled my buggy over on the second day with them going very slow and broke one though. they are worth the 8$ i paid for a package though. losi ones are good too.
