Default I think drilling out the top...

makes a big difference. You could experiment with different sizes, but I only made them as big as my hex driver end. I think RPM could have something here. Make them with a hole and put a plug in it for offroad. My 2-cents.

I was wondering if you could use X-ray ball cups. You would have to check/correct the shims for roll center, but I think they are tighter and freer. Just replacing one per tierod end would help a lot.

Getting rid of that plastic servo steering link helps a lot, but I went to a titaium rod and one 4-40 Durbro ball cup/swivel (the ones like the ex-ray ball cups) on one end. No slop now and more the car feels more consistant to me. Steering input feels more precise.
