Get a pin vise and you are good to go. I like Losi std CA and some kicker for glueing holes. Thin goes through the holes too easy IMO.
I just ordered the same bits at 11 am. I was thinking a couple days a minimum for delivery. Boy was I surprise when I got a knock on my door ten minutes ago. Now that's fast delivery. Now is time to tinker.

My 22T RTR supposedly came with 1k diff oil in the geared diff. I put 2k weight oil in it. I think that maybe it corners better, but don't know for sure.

Did you notice any difference in the acceleration of your 22T between the 5K and 10K diff oil?

Is it any advantage to have the 22T start out at a higher minimum throttle setting? The 'top end' will still be the same no matter what the throttle minimum setting is, correct?

It explains what the values mean . As far as being an advantage or disadvantage that is up to personal preference .
Top end will be the same regardless .

Hello everyone, I'm getting ready to sit down and order my 22T. I talked to some of the Losi guys at the track today and asked what should I replace while I'm doing the initial build. The general thought was to replace king pins and put the aluminum steering rack on it. Is there anything else I should order with the kit ? Thanks for your help.

+1 on the kingpins, the alum rack isn't necessary and has cause more problems for some guys. Out of the box the truck is great! You can add some bling later on down the road like the Al Camber blocks, front bulkhead, and a cool battery hold down but none of that is needed! It all does look cool though and adds a bit more durability to the truck.

I would definately order the rtr shock caps if you plan on running emulsion style, which is much better than the bladders. I would also order the cool Al servo horns, they look great and you don't have to worry about stripping plastic.

For those of you who are new to the truck and may have missed this. I haven't posted about them in a while but I will make them as long as people want them.

I love this truck.....I built one for my son and can't keep from driving it. It's awesome. I will build another one soon. I have a T4 and it's great but this truck is awesome.

Thanks for the reply. I know this is the 22T forum but wanted to post that I tried two hole pistons today on my mid motor car. Went with 1.55mm holes and 27.5 oil front and rear. Left everything else the same and my car was quick. Went 0.2 second faster on my fast lap and the car could be driven harder. I like it and will test more with 1.6 or 1.7mm pistons

Does anyone have a 22T manual that they want to sell?

I know I can download it, but when I print them they just end up getting shredded in my box.

Put it in a little 3 ring binder after you print it.

Default 22 SCT AL FRONT CAMBER BLOCK ON THE 22T

Just a heads up folks, I installed the 22 SCT aluminum front camber block on my 22T. The SCT version has a 2mm higher mounting pad than the 22/22T version along with having mounts for the front sway bar. By running this block you can run up to 6mm total inner height to mellow the steering for when the track gets loose.

Do not buy a AL Rack.... Just run the stock one

I tested this as well and settled on 10K myself

With the 10K it lost a little bit on on power steering but I did not diff out as bad coming into a high speed hairpins.

The high speed turns coming into a hirpin is hwere I could not get teh gear diff to work. I would just loose teh rear end and went back to my ball diff due to this
