Anyone know when parts are going to be coming off of back order? Particularly the steering rack. I broke one on Friday night and my truck is out of action until they come in as my track doesn't have any in stock.

I just did buy two on ebay, but it's kind of annoying that they don't have these in stock. It's not like we can retro fit something to work until they come in. If you break it, you're down until they come in. So far they've been on back order for like two or three weeks now. That's a lot of time to wait if you're truck isn't able to run because of this.

Sucks too cause I just paid like $14 for one with shipping and $12 for another with shipping when they usually cost like $8 in the stores. Fricken internet vultures taking advantage of people like me really piss me off. But what can I do? It's either that or have a truck sitting around useless until who knows when.

Based on the dates listed by Horizon that I have looked at, the steering rack should be in their stock on the 15th, following to the lhs's a couple of days after that.

As for some of the other parts, the dates appear to be scattered over the next couple of weeks.

Are the steering rack in the 22T different from the 22? I've got plenty of 22 steering racks alum and plastic. If they are not the same I need to get some extra as well.
I always sprinkle a little powdered graphic on the two pieces so they stay smooth and slick without attracting dirt.
I just finished the build on the 22T can't wait to put it on the track this weekend.

I run on track that is dirt, sand and clay mix. I am using the Evans spektrum setup. The set up is pretty good when the track has moisture but when the track dries up a little the rear of the truck loosen up. I was wondering what I good change to improve the rear bite?

What tires are you running front to back
Just throwing it out there. But if it where me I'd move the hubs forward with a 1mm shim in front and move the rear shocks out on the arm.
