Lightweight electronics (servo, esc and motor) can add up to a hefty chunk of weight also. For high bite tracks the lower center of gravity helps quite a bit with corner speed. Ive run a futaba corless shorty servo in 2wd and 4wd for years with great results, plus its about 20g lighter than most aluminum case servos. I do run plastic servo arms to act as a servo saver but I've only broken one or two in the past 10 years or so, servos still going strong.

Hey, did you find out anything more? Is it the dogbone pin, where axle meets diff outdrive you mean?
I measured mine and found they are 2.4mm, so 2.5mm which you can get many places will be to big, I think.

I’m going to try a 5-S-N seam clamp, used for roofing. The Mugen bone tool was to big for the 1/10 dogbone . Yeah the 2.5 pins look like the ones to use.

Outside of diff access, what do "we" want in a 22-6.0 AC?

More threaded area on front axles. Would like to run different wheels. 10mm threaded length would be great.

As 22X-4 rear arm swaps seem to have been a bit popular (havenít tried myself), perhaps dedicated 22 rear arms to match the geometry/spacing/whatever ďmagicĒ the arms seem to do for the buggy are in order?

Oh, and maybe revised G3ís with composite versions of the domed caps (I suppose the aluminum ones will always be an option part)?

That being said, I donít necessarily think the 22 needs a ď6.0Ē upgrade. With little refinements like this, plus the top secret carpet/Astro changes theyíve been working on for over a year, Iím guessing they could get away with a ď5.1Ē that 5.0 owners could upgrade to - or heck, just call it a 22X for consistency across the buggy line, hehe. I believe that itís gotten to the point that we donít need a whole new buggy to remain competitive. Iíd be happy with an available upgrade kit or parts list.

The 22X-4 rear arms are not for everywhere according to Ryan Cavalieri. It is also personal preference.

Wasn't aware there was top secret AC upgrades in the works. Will keep my eye out! Good suggestions.

Makes sense, particularly when you are adapting a part from one buggy meant for another. Like I said, maybe the 22X-4ís arm design just needs to be refined to better work with the 22ís suspension geometry while still providing the benefit that led to experimenting with the arms in the first place. 🙂

Oh itís been lurking in the shadows for at least a year. Frank mentioned it most prominently during last yearís live stream with Thomas how heís been working with Gil Jr. in his consulting role to make the 22 better in very high bite situations (i.e. carpet), so I hope they are close to revealing something soon!

the 22 ac is a great carpet car and at the current price the best value out there , every bit as good as the latest ae's and others in my experience the killer is the really diff access and to a less extent wheel compatibility these is the only major negatives that I see.

There were no TLR's left here. All switched to AE, Xray, Schumacher and Yokomo. No one could make the car work. I know no one was doing what Frank was doing to make it work. So maybe that is why. the last guy switched from TLR and immediately went up 1 to 2 mains with the schumacher car. I believe the TLR can do it but you have to do some work to get it there. you don't have to do the work on the others
