When I first started running the Pro 4 I kept popping the left rear upper link off with just the lightest tap. Not with these.

anything is better than the HPI Heavy Duty ball cup...
I had those on my Pro3... and they only lasted 1-2 races before they developed slop....

I'm still using the stock ones on my Pro4...after 4 racing days on it...they're still fairly slop free and no problems of them popping off....

I've been racing with the stock ones for about 3 months now and have only had a ballcup pop off once. They've been pretty sturdy.

With Futaba's S9550 lowprofile digital servo...plenty of room for your electronics... enough room to install (2) 5v. 25mm fans.

Hey Kevin, haven't talked in a little while. How's everything with the chassis working out now that you've had it for a while? I'll shoot you an email.

Thanks!

Ben...Everything has been great I have been running the car on a bunch of surfaces and no matter what surface or type of tires that are on the car it still works great. I have yet to have any issues with tweak or anything of that nature.....the chassis has just been rock solid and a heck of a performer. Cant wait to get a full on production one. Also check your Email

They are called "Ball Grippa" sockets (PK 8)
These are nice.

p/s sounds like my girlfriend
I will second that these are the best ball cups around....and they are flat on the tops so you dont have to do that to clear the rim. And you cant beat the name.....

Does anyone know if the 0.5, 1.0 and 2.0mm shims for kickup and anti-squat equal the change in degrees? Like, if I have 3mm in front and 2mm in back on the front end of the car, is that a 1* kickup?
