Casper... I got a couple questions about your setup you just posted a link too...
do you use trailing spindles or stock... and do you shim it 1mm top and bottom? Do you unscrew shock eyelets in the back? and do you shim the a-arms near the trans all the way back?

And I had a question about trevor's setup, Not sure if you'll know the answer or not... in order to get 25' with the aluminum block in the front, is this the 1 I need?

Do i need a shim like the brass shim on the buggy?

I run stock 2mm trailing spindles. for my setup. The setup sheet clearly states the spindle is shimmed middle (1mm on top and 1mm on bottom)

I don't unscrew my shocks. I shimmed the arms foward as far as the little shims for the inner pivots.

Yes you use the buggy front pivot and the shims to get 25 deg front kick up on the 22T. He calls out the part number of the pivot on his setup sheet as well. You need to run the 25 deg plastic or bass shim when using that pivot. I am not sure which one he used (plastic or brass) It does not say.

A big thank you to Casper for posting this setup. By far the best setup on any stadium truck I have ever driven. Truck turns right now in sharp corners and is planted on long sweeping turns. Thank you Casper

I will be getting a 22T soon. I just wondered if there were any specific spare parts I should have in my parts box? Thanks.

Knock on wood but I have been running mine since they came out and have only broken one part! A king pin screw, switched to the threaded kingpin and no other issues! I always peek a pair of arms Fr and Rr on hand, and the truck comes with a bunch of extra stuff like shock pistons. So you should be good to go, they are tough lil trucks! The TLR Aluminum upgrades are nice but not totally needed!

That's good to know. I usually have a pair of arms, rear hits, steering uprights, etc. for all of my cars and trucks. Some I never need, but others I do.

Are we raising the tranny like in the buggy? I got my buggy where I want it and I am going to start tuning this truck this week. What about stick or shorty pack what is preferable? Indoor clay. Thanks.

I am currently using sadle packs. I turn them sideways and this really helped keep the truck flat in the air. I was having a problem with off power steering so i took out the 4mm shims on the front camber links and now the steering is great. Im on indorr clay also.

I know the question has been asked about using the AE 2 hole BB pistons in the losi shocks but people were wondering how the fit is. Over the weekend I replaced my stock pistons with the 2 hole AE piston and they fit absolutely perfect. I measured both pistons with digital calipers and the ae pistons measured .002 larger. This has zero issues with the shocks function since it's such a small difference. For the $3.xx for the full ae set, it's a well worth upgrade if you're looking into running 2 hole pistons.

What tires to you guys recommend for hard packed black dirt? On my SC truck I run AKA super soft wish bones. At the last race one of the buggy drivers was using worn rear tires and another SC truck guy was using the Proline street tires. Thanks.

I would try a super soft Panther Switch 2.0 then. This is a small pin tire like a wishbone in a similar compound rubber.

In general terms do the wider rear hexes dial out steering?
