but they are good to use if they are mounted in a tight spot. ;) I like the CCE balls the best.

Homie, their the same. We've used both, put them side by side, took measurements, used them in the same type set-ups- 3wheeling w/ shit loads of batts, etc... their the exact same. Probably made by the same 5yr old kid in a sweat shop in china! ;)

I wouldn't ever use the ones where the ring screws onto the bottom part. :nono:

We use to use the Showtime ones....the ones that use 4 screws to hold the top ring on, and they sucked! The rings broke after a little while on all the cars I have seen them on. We switched to the ones Prohopper had; where the ring screwes on to the bottom piece, and haven't had a problem yet.

CJ.... I don't know really about the screw cap ones. Just doesn't seem like a good design to me Homie.... :dunno:
it screws and then bolt down sounds good to me.

Haven't seen the ones that screw on then bolts down. That might be ok. A while back i seen some that just screwed on. I didn't trust that. Seemed too easy for it to come lose over time you know....
