i'm guessing your running a tc3, i found my xxx-s ones are pretty tight. don't get hpi, and i don't know who makes aftermarket except rpm, haven't tryed those yet though.

no TC3, i actually run a 1/10 pan car. i just figured that a TC has more parts in their steering linkage so every bit of play in each component adds up therefor i was thinking that this issue would be more important for TC racers. so i thought maybe somebody might know of some good tight ball and cup manufacturers.thank you,i think i might try the RPM cups

I like the rpm ballcups, i noticed they do take up some of the slop.

I think the losi ballcups are probably the best out there, i believe mip, or rrp makes a stainless steel oversized ballstud for standards cups, that takes up a lot of slop. The other thing that works really well for me is to put o-rings on the ballstud.
