To me that doesnt look so difficult - look at the mid motor config, how far away from the XXX-NT is that layout, damn, its already got the ally chassis!

Maybe output the spur out the otherside, its almost there...

Personally I can see the 22 platform being used for all types of 1/10th scale, its obvious what they are trying to do, keep the parts count down, make as much transferrable as possible, I think SCT or 4WD will probably be next...exciting times for TLR and TLR fans!

I'm not anti ST by any means. But I'd hardly say they're the "Real Trucks". Shortcourse trucks resemble full 1:1 sized trucks that are raced in REAL life dating back to the Heavy Metal classes back in the 80's (Walker Evans anybody?). Stadium trucks, realistically should have been called 1/10 Truggy's like their 1/8th scale counterparts. Infact, you want to see what a 1:1 stadium truck looks like...Well, it looks like a Shortcourse truck only they used "mini trucks like what would now be a Tacoma or Nissan Frontier (back then they were just Toyota and Nissan pick up trucks since there weren't any full size Tundra or Titan trucks) instead of fullsize trucks

I'm not trying to take away from the excitement of the 22T. It looks to be a great platform and will hopefully bring the class back and hopefully not to the detriment of shortcourse. Because Shortcourse have really fun classes as well.

There is nothing "REAL" about the design of the RC stadium truck class. I've never seen a 1:1 scale truck that has its wheels cantilevered out that far away from the fenders on long skinny arms.

1 new losi truck will not kill short course

i would take the x-60 before this (even would take the t4.1 before 22t)

Then post in one of those threads. This is for people to discuss the 22t.

22T will revolutionize the Electric Stadium Truck class, as we did years back when we released the XX4 and the 4wd buggy class was in the same boat to the stadium truck class of today... The truck is pretty sick... just wait..

RedDevil- What is so "REAL" as you say about 2wd and 4wd buggy to scale size?...

if we were looking at realism these things would only go 10-15 mph, weigh 400lbs since they are 1/10 the normal size.

This is about the 22T so haters go away. those who like it want to buy it or race stadium trucks discuss.....i hope there is a revitalization of the class it was always my favorite.

That looked awesome! The 22T didn't look too bad either But seriously, it looked like it was handling really quite well! But that track just looked amazing!

Kinda funny to see people defensive of another class in the wrong thread. I don't have a Losi but the truck looks great and I am very excited to see it come out. I do think the truck class is a blast and would like yo see the numbers go up with a new chassis to get. I think some of what hurt truck was the same chassis for 10 years... people were just looking for something new...

The RT5 is only 2 years old.
The XXX-T CR is 4 years old..
Maybe I am just not following the statement...
Stadium Truck is strong around here! Always has been.

I wasnt bashing. I agree you guys did all you could to get a new vehicle out with the 22. I just was stating it would be awesome if you guys could better that good performance with an even faster delivery date. I fully understand there is sertain things that delay these releases tho.

Well they arent real either, but no one mentioned buggy so I didnt either. The whole point was that someone said screw short bus, her comes the REAL trucks. And I was simply pointing out that ST is as far from realistic as you can get, whereas the "short bus" is much closer to realism in appearance and racing in general. If you want to talk buggy, then the HPI 5B and the Losi SCB are the clear choices there, 2wd and 4wd are again not close.

I dont care either way, I ran Gas ST back in the day and I assume I will run ST now if it actually takes off, I just dont like blind bashing like "short bus" and "real truck" when it is clearly off base.

The statement he is making is the same one that was made by Horizon/Losi in the Youtube video. The "Chassis" is a 10 year old design. Adding some new composite plastic material, or changing the length or width by a few millimeters does not a new chassis make. It simply updates an old design. All companies out there have done nothing to ST or buggy over the last 8 - 10 years except update old tech and sell you it all over again for another $300. TLR has brought out brand new, game changing designs with the 22/22T. That's the difference.
