Default Shock Style Mounting

Heres goes another tread.
Which shock style mounting would work best. The HPI nut style shock mounting featured on the cyclone or the Tamiya/Xray style where the ball inside the cap is threaded. I would figure the ball type would work best but I know that the nut style has been used alot and the cars that its been used on have won international titles....

Honestly it wont make a difference. They are both designed to do the exact same job, but the ones with the nuts weigh more, so it comes down to personal preferance
