Where is the massive slop in the front-end? Does that take I while, haven't run mine much?

I've got pretty good slop in my 12R5.1, but it's a rocket ship.
Have tried to get rid of it, twice, to no avail. Replaced all the plastic bits and tried new bearings, ball cups, etc. Works great though. My TRF101 has no slop in it, though.
Im not sure on the newer kits, But when the FX first came out the pivot balls were too small for the eyelets so there would be a few degree of camber change when the car moves around. It doesnt seem to handle handling much, but its disconcerting when you see your car coming out of a corner and the front wheel is wobbling around.

There are mods where people replaced it with yokomo parts to help with the slop
