Losi Parts House & Amain etc. etc. haven't had the 22T listed for quite a while now. TLR don't even have it on their homepage either.

A week ago I told the guys at my LHS that if I bought a T4.2 right now in a week the T5 would be released. Finally, I was somewhat right about that. While it's not released it looks really close.

Yes that is true, but a prototype truck based on the 22T has been seen being run there. Don't know off hand what's changed. Love how mine drives with all of the 2.0 parts, and since it just won ROAR, I'm sure something is coming soon. With that said, the T looks nice. Just hope it has a setup out of the box that works. Would be interesting to see what Mayfield could do with a midship ST..

I don't know why but I didn't really care about a T5 up until now. Seeing the prototype makes me want one.

Its a shame the ST class still hasn't grow where im at its still dead. Tired it last year with the T4.1 and i tried of it being so inconstant turnout wise.

But i enjoy driving ST much more than 2wd buggy !

Stadium truck is still as popular as ever here in the PNW. I think the T5M will just push more people over the edge and get us into E mains for the class during our winter club racing.

Beedee, I didn't see you. But it was insanely packed so I could barely find my friend that I drove there with. I can't imagine how long the races must have lasted, I saw there were like 140 entries.

As soon as the T5 (rear and/or mid) is released, I'm picking one up and retiring the trusty XXXT-CR.

Growing up here. And thankfully! SCT is dying in this area.

From what I have seen 2 wheel drive SC has rapidly decreased in turnout. SC 4x4 is up. May be a trend? I think as long as manufacturers keep pushing ST out, it won't come back. 22Tbjust won Nats basically box stock, but kits cannot be found. I have nothing against SC as it gets people into the hobby, but also see a lot of those people stop as soon as they start racing. Doesn't seem to be the cast with other classes.
