What about RPM ballcups? I've used them for years and they are very strong (and colored too).

Do you need the Schumacher ball studs or do they work with the Associated studs?

Good Question!!

Something I've always wanted to know as well..... are there metric ball stud sizes as well as Imperial ball sizes? (And no, I'm not talking about the thread size or the wrench needed to install the stud. )

I suppose I could just whip out the calipers and measure a few....

The Shumacher ball cups are a perfect fit for AE ball studs. The ball size is the same as AE, Losi, HPI, etc (4.3mm or 3/32)...just the threads are different.

So without ever seeing a Schumacher ball cup you just know that the RPM ballcup is better.... because the British cant make a quality part?
Man get real.... you just dissed a entire country
I have used both and I find that the Schumacher never pop off where as the RPM's do on occasion.

RPM while a great company making quality products cant hold a CANDLE to Schumacher Ball Cups.

Schumacher hands down for the TC4.

Speedtechrc.com or Schumacher Direct.

I tried speedtech, but I don't see a part number. I guess I'll have to call.

You obviously don't know what you are talking about. The British are notorious for the flawed machining (anyone who has ever driven, worked on, or owned a British vehicle will know what I mean). Case in point:

The Land Rover Discovery was rated THE WORSE quality vehicle by J.D. Powers & Associates. BMW buys them, retools the line, and the Discovery jumps to second best.

The problem: too many privileged kids taking spots at the top Universities that would be better suited to young, bright future engineers. Until Britan dumps its old royal class system, they will always lag behind (until the Germans or Americans buy their companies and actually introduce quality).
