Can anyone help I just ran my 22t at the track and cant get any traction. I go to mikeshobbyshop and a setup sheet would help.

Try Corey Bernardo's base set up. Works well on medium to low traction tracks.
If you are at Mike's on Sundays, come see me. I'll be happy to help you out. Ask for Brian Reynolds.

A base setup is a good starting point but with the 22 series, if your diff is even a tiny bit loose the truk will seem like theres no traction. Been there ith this truck! You can also put a lil weight in the rear of the truck and that can do wonders as well.

I would go talk to some of the racers at your track that run the 22T . They will be the best to get you going on a good setup and proper tires and inserts . Some instances adding weight helps , but you need a setup that works at your track first . Just tossing weight on is not the answer .

Corey Bernardo's setup is a good starting point at Mike's. Make sure the diff isn't loose. What tires are you running? I have been running JConcepts Double Dee's front and rear with bomb 1 inserts. Right now my truck is running great on the current layout. Also adding some weight in the right places and raising the transmission helps as well.

Will I am running a 27t pinion with the stock spur. I went back and forth on the pinion with my 13.5 and even with the esc boosted I couldn't make the step up before the rhythm section. With the 10.5 in there now I can make it barely. Your more experienced so you might have some better luck. Since theres no motor limit in our ST class I would go bigger on the motor.

They are stock pistons. You need to glue 2 holes closed, then drill out the other two holes to 1.7mm.
