As someone with a background in dealing with crybabies this is really not that mind blowing.
If you have a question for Frank Root from TLR he's over on page 1, look for 22 2.0 buggy or 22 SCT.

For which application?


I run mainly Finnisher shell and I have been running this shell for a long time. At my local track, the Finnisher shell seems to be the popular choice as an alternate to the stock body.

But it depends on the track and where you run. Jason @ Jco did a video not long ago that discussed WHEN you might opt for a Silencer over a Finnisher shell if that is what you are considering.

I run on a high traction clay. I've been running the TLR cab forward body on my 22 2.0. Just wanted to to try something different and was looking for opinions. And a different tuning option. I'll definitely check out that video. I appreciate the imput.

It will debut at the Reedy race and then it will be a couple weeks after; maybe mid February.

Would you guys consider doing a Silencer body for the T5M? I have no idea what that would look like on a T5M, but it would be nice to have a fresh option for the new truck.

We will release the T5M Finnisher first since it only needs some minor tweaks, but there are plans to release an all new truck body later this year

Paul if I can ask what are the minor tweets involved, could one technically use the current finished body for the CT4.2/RT6? Thanks

You could technically make it work with some trimming on the rear mounts, etc, but me personally, I don't like the fit. The new body will be about 6.5 - 7mm longer, but the wheelbase pretty much remains the same.

How long before that body is available for the T5m?

Sounds good! Are you guys going to keep the T4.2 Finnisher around for a while? Since AE didn't release a rear motor T5 I'm reconsidering the T4.2 as my rear motor truck.

So at the local track in SCT, pressure points in green work the best all around for me. I tried dirt webs, they aren't bad, just not quite as good as the points. What track condition changes should I keep an eye on that would make the dirt webs a good choice? I also have barcodes in green as well, same thing they just aren't quite as hooked up as the points.
