22SCT 2.0 - Starting Setups

Hello Racers!

We have had some questions about what setups the team is running on the new 22SCT 2.0 since the trucks have just started shipping, and we are happy to share them with you.

Below, are the setups for mid-motor and rear-motor.  For mid-motor, we've gotten Ryan Maifield's most current setup which lead him to victory at the JConcepts Fall Indoor National.,%20MM.pdf

For rear-motor, the kit setup is actually exactly what I have been running just about everywhere and is a great place to start.  Some things to try from this are lower ride height, Pink rear springs, and maybe up 2.5wt oil front and rear if the grip is high.

Hope these work well for you and we cannot wait to hear what you think about the 2.0!

CVA's for the 22-4 Now Available!

Hello Racers,

We have just announced and started shipping CVA driveshaft sets for the 22-4.  The team has been testing these for quite a while, and the results have been VERY positive.  Ryan Maifield, Dustin Evans, and Dakotah Phend have all been using these on their summer victory tour.

A CVA joint will create more natural lock up or "bind" than a universal joint.  This helps to stiffen the suspension when under acceleration, which makes the car flatter and drive off harder.  It also helps jump landings, when you apply some throttle (especially when you know you are casing/flat landing).  

Along with going to the "shorty" setup on the 22-4, the CVA's were the other huge setup change the team has made that has resulted in many wins this summer.  Try them out today!

TLR332012 - Front Driveshaft Set, CVA, Complete: 22-4

TLR332013 - Rear Driveshaft, Set, CVA, Complete: 22-4

Thanks and Race On!

Setup Sheets from the National Champ!

Hey Guys,

We've gotten the setup sheets from Dakotah Phend for his recent ROAR National Championships.  

Dakotah took the TQ and Win in dominating fashion in the Modified 2WD Buggy Class with his 22 2.0.

Dakotah had a reversal of fates from the 2013 Nationals, and won the Modified 2WD Stadium Truck Class from 2nd on the grid in the first two mains.

And lastly, Dakotah took a strong TQ in the Modified 4WD Buggy Class after topping 3 of 4 rounds.  He followed it up with a strong second place finish.

Give these setups a shot and see if they can help you get to the top of the podium as well!

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.
