Thanks
Get this one and you will have a tool that will fit any TRL/Losi turnbuckle!

Default Ball Cups Popping Off

For those popping ball cups off on the outside in the front, as per an earlier discussion on this thread, make sure you are not over-tightening the front wheel nuts. This pushes the tire in and very close or even rubbing on the ball cup and causes bad performance as well as easier ball cup pop off. Get some serrated nuts and just slightly snug the front tires.

Before i build my tranny - Is the aluminum diff nut a must or does the stocker work OK? Heard some bad reviews of the diff on this thing.

Any word on aluminum wheel hexes? Kinda disappointed in the lack of aluminum parts in this kit for the price. Especially rear hubs. And roll pins in the axles? Really?

For the diff, the 22T comes with a one peice diff nut/housing that works great, no need to upgrade. This was updated was also made to the 22 kits.

No aluminum hexes yet, sorry. As for Aluminum rear hubs, none of the team drivers run them. They look nice, but really the plastic hubs are prently strong and lighter.

Thanks Frank!

Bummed that I need to work on my XXX SCT tonight to prep for racing tomorow and probably won't be able to get back on the 22T until Sunday.

What's the last word on the tabs on the bottom of the body? Seems like dudes are cutting them off?

yea......no more e clips on my truck! Captured is great and makes changes way easier.

I used the Losi Serrated Nylon lockers, I had 4 left over from my buggy so I was glad of that. I use them and i was looking for that rubbage guys are speaking about none notice. I cranked down on mine also. Still there was space and nothing was scene to show they rubbed at all.


BTW, those Serrated lock nuts GRIP. I have problems taking them off.....lol. Had to regrip my nut driver......(Nut Driver..just sounds funny....lol.)

No need for them...Chris and I don't use them...there should be a picture in the manual. You can attach them to the chassis

How easy is it to change out the servo? Can I slide it out backwards simply by removing the 6 screws on the servo mount posts (two top and three bottom)? Or do you need to remove the whole front End assembly to do it?

I know this is off topic, but I was wondering if any of you will be racing your 22Ts at OCRC tonight I am in town working the SX for the weekend and I have the night off, so I was gonna go check out the action tonight. IF any of you will be there I would love to put a face with the name....let me know.
