I would say run rear if track doesn't have enough grip to your liking. Run mid if there is abundant traction to keep from wheelying coming out of corners when throttling hard. Just my guess?! Mid may provide more steering too as it will shift weight towards front.

Actually, I believe I saw in a video and written text around here that mid motor configuration will be able to use either shorty packs or saddle packs - the few mm the T chassis gained is not enough to fit a standard stick pack in mid motor configuration.

I was reading the last few pages of this "official" 22t forum and the 1 thing that seem to keep popping up on this trread was losi's choice to go with the stadium truck over the more popular short course route.
The reason? Popularity... The slash has made it possible for the average Joe and their kid to buy a kit and race for about $200. Kids, the average weekly racer saw it on tv and said "I want it". Who did not own a slash at 1 point of their hobby life?
The other manufacturers jump on board and made kick az race kits. That killed the slash's momentum. The intrest grew seeing the TORC trucks on tv rocking Traxxas logos, seeing replicas of your favorite racer truck, and going out to race, and bang on the weekend.
ST trucks use to be the thing and ofna tried to revive it a bit by coming out with the TT. They even had a TT class near me, however that went away with the popularity of the 4wd sct.
I will buy one of these, because I'm a adventurous Losi fan. It will also revive the st class a bit. Which is great for Losi. Not to mention the smaller companies comming out with conversion kits. I personally cant wait to steal the shocks off this truck and try them on my xxx sct.

Bottom line........ the day Losi makes a 22SCT, this truck will go the way of the dodo's as well. You'd be lucky to have two full heats of A and B main ST trucks at your local track. So enjoy it now fellas.

I don't know... Personally I'm tired of SC. It's a little frustrating to try to get a truck to handle well when all you have to do is stick a st body on it and boom, it steers and jumps awesome. IF the ST class gets big at our lcal track I might sell my sct and get a 22t

Mine is on order

St racing is hit and miss here, as well as buggy, really dont care if it takes off or now, it will be cool to have and race when there is enough, im sure there will be at the bigger races.

You guys realize all that's need for the sc is a longer chassis and some body mounts right? I would be willing to bet that is why this comes with 12 mm hexes all the way around. That is finally becoming the standard in SC.

Congrats to Dustin for the 2nd place with the new 22T after a whole 3 half track days with it...lol. He can sure wheel. The truck looked great out there in the hands of all the guys.

As for this SCT stuff...this is the 22T thread...there is a seperate thread for the other. Bickering about what should be or would be, what is is the 22T and its dialed!

Agreed 100%-this is a thread for the 22t-which is a "Stadium Truck" and is not designed to "look" like a real truck. If you are looking for the "Short course" truck thread, which looks more like a "real" truck--it's here--> http://www.rctech.net/forum/electric...tlr-22sct.html we would appreciate if you would stop trampling here..thanks

That body looks way to blocky. It needs to be smoothed out. Looks like crap.

I am excited to see a new ST coming out, I like the idea of it hopefully reviving the class, because it gives the pro guys another class to battle in. They (media) really don't talk about the SCT class like they used to talk about the ST class, at least not that I remember..
