I'm using the Tamiya ball cups. Trust me, the slop is all in the rack, I can see it moving around the ball bearings. Either the ball bearings are shot, or the aluminum pieces around them have opened up.

I bought this R1 used and the previous owner did a very nice job of putting some teflon tape between the ball bearings and the aluminum. However, that leads me to think that something is worn, just trying to figure out what.
