If you mean the ball cup is coming off of the stud, then all you need to do as a quick fix is get a plastic grocery bag, cut some squares out of it and put them in between the ball stud and ball cup.

Since you are 1500g, the PPD plates would be good for you. We run 1420g rule. So I only need to add a small amount of weight.

Elwyn, Do you know if that BD-5E chassisi is available separately. It looks like it will help with flex.

Martin have you used that chassis?
