Hi guys, got a question for you.

I seem to have a lot of slop in my ball joints on the car at the moment.
I was wondering if any one else has this problem and if there's a cure?
I've heard that Schumacher ball and cup joints are very tight, would these do the trick? or is there another option?

Regards
Ed

It's okay, does not affect your handling. You could put an o-ring under the cup or put a drop of CA inside and it will tighten up.

hey guys, going back to the droop question a few pages ago, I had an idea.

How about removing the transparent spacer from inside the shocks rather than adjusting the ball cup? would probably give the extra travel required to set more droop, with out sacrificing the screw thread on the shock shaft.
Just a thought.
Ed

In the September issue of RC World (japanese mag)... the TRF Team tells you to put a drop of CA inside the ball cups... then wipe it around/out with a tissue. Same can be said where the bearings go into the hubs.

Thsi is to get out some of the play that they might have from being worn..... but a little magic tape on the ball studs will do the same trick ...or you can just change over to a RPM ball cup and regular size ball and not have to worry about the Tamiya Rod ends

I would rather keep the car as true (tamiya) as possible.
