22 Platform Shock Shaft and Body Chart

Hello Racers,

We have labelled our new shock shafts and shock bodies with their lengths rather than the vehicle type due to some of the bodies and shafts being used on multiple vehicles.  Below is a chart showing which bore length and shaft lengths are required for each vehicle.

This will help keep track of which shock body and shock shaft is needed for each TLR Vehicle.  Thanks to Ryan Dunford for helping put this together.

Race On!

TLR Diff Tool has many uses

Recently one of our team drivers, Otto Ausfelt, reached out to us to tell us about another way that he uses his TLR Diff Tool. As we all know, the TLR Diff Tool is nice to use for those quick on the fly diff tuning adjustments but you can also use it to adjust your inner front camber ball stud on your TLR 22-4. See the pictures below.

Accessing the front inner camber link on the 22-4. Can anyone find anything else interesting about this picture?
In order to insert the TLR Diff Tool into the ball cup, Otto use a hole punch to create the hole, which provides access to the 2mm hex on the ball stud.

The ball cup above is the finished product.
Thanks to Team Losi Racing Driver Otto Ausfelt for providing this quick tip.

Tech Tip – TLR 22-4 (One-Way Clicker Assembly)

Before assembling your new one-way clicker assembly, or if you are experiencing some binding in the assembly, here is a simple modification.

Step 1: Take a Scotch Brite pad and remove the black anodizing from the slipper shaft (TLR232022) on the clicker side, see figure 1. Once completed, the shaft should be a metallic color and have a smooth finish, see Figure 2.

Step 2: Using TLR black Grease, place a small amount on the clicker gear, and gently spread between all teeth, see Figure 3.  Note: only a very small amount is needed, as you just want a small film-like coating layer to prevent the clicker from binding under load. 
Step 3: Apply a small drop of oil (bearing oil works well) on the slipper shaft and work-in using your fingers, see Figure 4. 
Step 4: Assemble the clicker assembly, see Figure 5, and if needed remove any excess grease between the clicker teeth.
Step 5: Complete and seal your vehicle and enjoy your TLR 22-4!
A special thanks to Team Losi Racing Driver Jose Zayas for providing this excellent tech tip article and photos for the Team Losi Racing 22-4.

16mm Spring Rate Chart

Hello Racers!

We've had a few questions about the specifics of the 8IGHT-T 3.0 Spring Rates, so I created a spring chart for all 16mm Spring, including those for the 8IGHT 3.0 and 8IGHT-E 3.0.  The chart includes the rate (lb/in), color, part number, and overall length in MM. 

Race On!!
