I'm setting up a 22T 4.0 for my wife who wants to try racing. To get the front ride height correct on the ground, when off the ground the front springs are loose by about 5mm. I could add shock limiters inside, but that seems like a lot of spacers! What is the best way to resovle this?

Thanks!

Donít worry about it, I think they used long cups in the 4.0 so the sprigs canít come out accidentally.

Default Setup for EOS carpet and Schumacher tires

The kit setup appears too soft at first sight and Frank Root's carpet setup on petitrc uses very different tires.
Anyone got a setup for the above?

Saw that as well and I am surprised no one else has commented on it here. I guess it is just not worth it for them to keep selling the 4.0 kit.

a while back I remember that Frank Root mentioned that they were not going to be making a new truck. I dont remember if he said anything about the sct. I dont think the stadium truck market is all that big anymore. I love my 4.0 but not many tracks get a good turnout for stadium truck. My closest 2 tracks do have stadium truck turnout so I am lucky and my 4.0 is still competitive.

Loved this truck and had a great run, but bye bye stadium truck. Best to stock up on parts now.

This why I stopped driving TLR cars. I don't buy a new one every year or two. After a few years you can't hardly get parts anymore.

Hey everyone.

I have an old TLR 22 5.0 (mixed parts from AC, DC and Elite). My local track is adding the 2wd Truck class and I was thinking it would be fun and probably pretty easy to convert this into a close iteration of the TLR 22T 4.0. I know it would not be exact and we are not racing hard core spec for club races. My initial thoughts on parts:
  • Front and Rear Shocks
  • Front and Rear Shock Tower Mount
  • Dog Bones for Truck
  • Front and Rear Arms
Is there anything else substantial that I am missing? I have turnbuckles that would work and replacement parts already but as far as the major items what else do I need to consider?

So from what I've heard, a lot of the "hardcore" racers running trucks are actually running franken-trucks used from a mix of truck and buggy parts. I'd love to do something similar but haven't taken the dive. I think you'd want to get the following, at a minimum:
  • Longer truck chassis (vision racing makes a sick carbon chassis that I believe people are running)
  • Truck arms front and rear, with matching dogbones and turnbuckles. You'd likely need different hubs to get the correct width too
  • Body mounts front and rear
  • Not sure what folks are using for shocks, but I think they might be running buggy shock packages and buggy towers. I'd start with the buggy versions and adjust if needed

Thank you. This is very helpful. I would not have used the right chassis if you didn't mention that here. I will look into purchasing either the Vision or just the stock if available.

The 5.0 rear shocks work for the front of the 22T, the rears will need to be the 22T rears unless you run 5.0 rears with domed caps and AE 4mm shock ends, even then you might not have enough droop. If you want VHA in the rear 22x-4 hubs and axles work, though you'd need to run AE offset as the ridiculously wide 22T hex can't be used. Unless you have a reason to just run the 5.0 chassis, it's a bit shorter but does the trick, even on carpet.

I built a 22SCT 5.0 from a Vision Chassis and 5.0 Parts.

Absolute rocket ship.

That looks fantastic. I may have to do the vision Chassis.
