I race outdoor red clay in South Florida and I have tried the high wing and thought that the car was a little too reactive for me , took the wing off and found the car very easy and predictable 2 drive and have about 35% of my steering dialed out of it.

I tried both the low front wing and high front wing. I did notice the better steering for tight turns with the low wing but I eventually switched back to the high wing. I prefer how the high wing feels in the air and our current layout has a couple large jumps that are crucial to land right.

Is there a part number for the low front wing mount? And is the purpose of the plus 2 towers just more droop?

Hi guys,
I have the chance of buying a TLR 22 and I think it'll be a 1.0 for cheap for my son.
As he's only 6 he'll probably hit stuff but can you still get parts for this? Is most suspension stuff interchangeable between the older and newer models?
Thanks!
Dirk

Did it happen to anyone? Stand up transmission on 5.0. Broken on both sides I noticed when I wanted to clean the car

since we're talking about the stand up trans, does part #TLR338007 fit the 5.0 as well? I had my 5.0 at my local track, it was super loose, the fast guys there say the car will not work with the lay down setup, so I'm looking to do the stand up conversion.

The stand up transmission will fit into the 5.0. If you do not mind me asking have you tried running the shocks to the back and using the 22g rear ballast? If I am lacking a good amount of traction outdoors I have found running the shocks back is a positive change.

thanks I'll try that! the buggy has the weight already, I will try switching the shocks and seeing how it does, the tires, Proline Positrons weren't helping either, but when I posted on the racers page for the track, some pretty fast guys said I really need to do the stand up, but if I can get it to hook better without doing so, I will

curious if you have to right length screws there. If they are even slightly to long I've seen them create a point of failure when stressed.

I was thinking that, on the 4.0 the screws are different between lay down and stand up.

Also try increasing the rear toe to 4'.
