Do I sell my type R or keep it? That is the question.

I've got the weighted lipo tray, flying fox layshaft, 2-3 sets of avid bearings, kydex bumper, sway bars, all the narrow pivots, fan mount, all shock pistons, lundsford turnbuckels, many spring sizes, original box & manual, and lots of extra parts etc

If someone is interested, send me a PM. Will work on putting a list together

Two of Losi's best off-road guys have access to one of the nicest on-road tracks in the country. Maybe we'll see them on the rug?

Slightly longer arms, gear diffs, more battery area thickness for newer shorty packs .

Don't know if it would be possible with the way the diffs are layed out or not but with a few slight tweaks it could be interesting. Especially with shorty packs and some more flexibility with battery placement.

That's pretty much what I have, maybe I will be selling off, too. I doubt if any of them will be fit on the new tc. I will also throw in the lndsford screws.

Am I wrong, Losi? Prove it.
I am sure the engineer that designed the TLR 22/T/SCT would do just fine.

It ain't the engineer. Its the driver (or lack thereof). Who on TLR would wheel the thing in development? Sure they have a great stable of driving talent on the team, but to devote the big guns to R&D for a year to shake-down a new car...different story. They'd have to spend some coin to go buy some on-road talent to put a dedicated on-road team together. I'm sure they have the cash, just need the motivation to pull the trigger.

Its Losi. If they decide to go forth with the venture I am sure they will have no issues finding R&D drivers to join their team.

Just baiting you! This seems like it could be very good news.

Now, can you convert some of those TLR22 drivers into road guys? Tessman did it!

Todd is the only driver you need! Man can wheel a tc like no other!

Those were the days!

I was still kicken butt and taking names with my mid motor JRXS about 1.5 years ago in 17.5 TC with boost. Then I got a type R and I'm running that in VTA and doing very good. Just a few things I don't like. The lipos don't really fit (I know they make short packs and could use a good reference under 5000maH) and the other is the setup sheets, I would like to see an editable PDF file that could be saved and changed again later.

Other than that, not much to complain about.

any more news of a new ride to keep me up at night??? and make my wallet cry
I run have 4 type r's and can't stop looking for more!! I'm lucky,that I can still run foam or rubber depending on how I feel that night.
my thought is a conversion kit may be? to help with rubber setups, longer arms thinner top plate, color coded springs etc
