any news on when the 22 5.0 will be updated? Wasn't the last update in 2019? That's as old as the Kyosho RB7.

TLR already missed their perfect release date of 2/22/22… I’d say you’ve got a bit to wait. Hopefully they’ll be ready by next indoor season? 🤞 Lol

Missed opportunity indeed.

I was about to say how ironic it was that AE officially announced their new 8th scale buggies instead, but the YouTube video actually dropped on the 23rd.

I am positive it will drop the moment I start to build another 5.0, which should be soon... As someone who likes to build a really new kit sooner rather than later, I was not super stoked about getting another DCE, but after some batteries with a friend's car having the front end modification and a couple of set-up tweaks, I made my peace with it and decided not to wait for a new platform any longer.

Did you also tried the rear end mod? What tweaks did you found useful?

The owner of the vehicle tried the 22X-4 rear arms before and did not like it, and accordingly he had changed back to the standard arms. We minimized rear toe and increased anti-squat. Other than that, his basic settings were quite good.

I haven't tried it myself. The arms are longer, which in m book creates more corner speed and reduces traction. As the shock mounting positions are different, shock response will also change. Using the sway bar will require some additional work, but the lower and rear mounted sway bar should be more effective. Maybe someone who has tried it can chime in, on my part it is only theorizing based on experience with other cars.

I think is using the VLA on the ftont arms to reduce the track and allow the use of AE wheels which would previously made thr track too wide and illegal.

The vla does not change track width it only changes the pivot location

That's the official view, but I saw a post a couple of pages back where people are using the outer hole of the hub and the inner hole on the wishbone - it requires a bit of dremelling but allows the use of ae offset front wheels.

It also requires the use of the unobtanium SCT Spindle. Which, is available in Aftermarket, thankfully.

Who makes them other than exotek? The EXO2013 spindles are slightly wider than the TLR SCT 3.0. I measured my SCT axles at 4.75mm while the EXO says theirs are 5mm.

Exotek is all i am aware of.

You can run shims on the backside of the Exotek spindle under the set screw to get it to the correct width.
