The RPM ones seem to be really good. I use the ones from HPI and those seem to be great so far.

RPM are good meaty items. I have also found that the Schumacher items are also good and not as bulky.

Schumacher's are indeed the best, but they won't fit your Tamiya unless you get 3/32" ball studs.

I think that the best bet for tamiya is the "low friction" gray ball cups from Tamiya. They snap on pretty hard, but develop a little slop quickly. The black Tamiya ones are pretty bad.

I only used RPM ones when I had my FT TC4. They seemed to work well.

IF you get the ones with the ball studs included you shouldn't have a problem.
