I keep having a problem with the rear washing out. On the clay track it seems to wash out on the turned off throttle.

My truck was like that at first, check a few things:

What is you ride height(mine was like 24mm at first way to low) raised it to 30/29 much better

shock oils as well( I started with 32.5/30) way to stiff lots of steering zero traction..Dropped to 27.5/25 again much better

I also raised the transmission and added 7g of weight over the transmission.

Also what camber link position are you running? I am running the 1-D block to help the truck keep steering while feeling really planted.

I did try taking the weight off recently and running a shorty car was better but I lost to much traction def gonna put the weight back on there.

As for ride height I just make sure the arms are level.

I am also using 1D on camber and outer hole on the a arm with the 3rd hole from outside on the shocks. 27.5 in rear shocks with yellow losi springs. I'm thinking of going 20 or 22.5 in rear. I have plenty of steering but thus washing out is becoming a problem.

Yesterday was the first time I ran it since I built it and so far I like the way it drives except for the rear end

Your diff could also be a lil loose.
Thats what mine was doing when I first ran it.
The diff is very touchy!

I'm using the gear diff with 5k. Going to drop it to 2k and hope that tones it down.

Maybe try different front tires. I'm running pink tapers on the front and suburbs on the rear. When the track is damp and the tires are clean the truck is great. When the tires start to collect some clay they have too much grip and cause the rear to whip around. I think sometimes you can have to much traction up front.

+1, this is how I always have my 22T's set up. With small pin tires to tame down the front end

I'm wondering if these will fit front and rear on the tlr22t? My daughter wants to run these for her bashing sessions she says lol! Thank guys for your time. I see these have the 12mm hex just like the 22t and the offset appears that it should fit no problem. I would also like to know if these will fit on the tlr22sct as well?

Have you tried a ball diff? I have found a ball diff to have more and consistent grip.

I'd definitely say run the ball diff. My experience with gear diffs in the 1/10 scale electric cars is that they hit a point where they "dump" all the power and get very loose. Frank is right - ball diff will provide more consistent traction.

I understand the on power issue but im having a problem washing out off power during turns. Im thinking thinner fluid in the rear shocks and diff might work till i get the ball diff in.

Just a thought; how much drag brake are you using. It's possible that the rear wheels are 'locking-up' somewhat and causing the rear end to slide around when you let off of the throttle.
