Default Strongest ball cups for a TC4?

Hey guys, I want to know which company makes the strongest ball cups. I am using RPM ones, but when ever I clip a board or something my cambers off. I check it after a night of racing and it's always off. I want to set it and leave it. I saw one TC4 with some Schumacher style ballcups, are they any good?

Default Are the Schmacher ones metric?

Do you have to cut them down and does anyone have a part number? Thanks.

I think with every car Iv'e ever had....the first addition is always schumacher ball grippa ball cups.....Iv'e broken the whole front end of a car to pieces and the ballcups were still on...never even had one pop off.....nice thing also, is they snap on tight but always pivot loose.......

Hi,

Try the Team Losi off road xtra rigid ball cups!
Maybe you have to shorten them , but they are very strong!

Probably by far the best thing Schumacher ever released... the grippa ballcups. No other cups compare on any level.

i think team losi just released their strong ball cups. u might wanna check them out. remember, if u dont break/pop the ballcups, most of the time u ended up breaking something else.
