Shimmed out the servo some more and noticed my ball cup ends on the link that connects the servo to the steering rack was twisted (face of the ball cup was not parallel to the rack arm/servo horn).

Untwisted the link and the steering no longer binds up. It is a little tight when approaching full lock to the right, but as previously mentioned...the rack should break-in over time.

Check out the Losi blog. Latest entry is a "how to" on adding captured rod ends.

What are you racing. Stock, mod etc. Ask 5 drivers probably get 5 answers.

Not seeing that they make a kit for the 22T. Just the 22B.

I assume you mean differential.

BFastRC.com Part #P54-C.

If you clean and re-grease the differential after every 30-45min of track time, then those parts will last a long time. The damage is usually done when running incorrect differential or slipper tension, or putting off maintenance and running the parts dry. When things start feeling gritty replace the thrust washers and diff rings. I've been using the same diff balls since November on my buggy. I only replace the rings every few months.

The TLR22 and TLR22T is very picky on the differential being correct, even more so than the Triple-X series was. If you are unsure how to build one properly have a look at Matt Castellano's video on the subject.

Default Rear spring problem

Thought I saw some one post a few months back about their rear springs rubbing on the shock body threads. I've got the same problem all of the sudden with certain springs and I can't find out whats going on. Any one else experience this problem? Solution?

Everytime I try to install new caster blocks my front suspension starts binding really bad.

What do I do?

Do I have to wait until the new blocks break-in? Do I ream out the holes that the pins go through?

Im trying to go from 5 deg blocks to zero. Are the zero degree blocks are more prone to binding?
