First stadium truck I ever had was the XXT-CR. That was way back in the day. Then nitro kicked in 1/10 electric died out here anyway. This is my first time back to ST since.

ST was the bash-and-smash class back then. Brushed motors and sanyo 1400SCR batteries. Oh yeah!

Them the good old says. Now SCT is the bash and smash class. ST is a little more civilized!

Nice thing about ST versus SC is that ST is still open-wheel. That discourages aggressive rubbing.

SC has certainly cleaned up the racing in other classes.

I sold my SCT 2WD & 4WD because that bashing just got annoying and I agree with previous posts at least with ST you have to be cleaner like you do buggy.

ST is more fun overall than SCT but that is my personal opinion and feeling though

I don't think they are lying or misleading anyone either. However, wasn't there something like an 8-month gap between the release of the original 22 and the 22T?? They don't have plans for a 22T 2.0 right now or in the future. Future is a very relative and non-descript term, and perhaps 8 months from now a 22T 2.0 could be considered for production……and even though I have AE cars right now I might just pick up a 22T anyway next week.

Hi, I just ordered one of these today, and I just wanted to know if there are any durability issues I should look out for. It would be much appreciated if you could let me know.

I will second that one. It sucks when you snap the stocker during a main.

I just updated my front hinge pin block to an aluminum one however now my front hinge pins keep popping out. I got the inline spindle set and it came with 2 threaded kingpins however I thought this was for the hinge pin spot but it's not as they are way too small in diameter to work. What are you guys doing to keep your front hinge pins from popping out? This truck is new (3 weeks old and only 10 races) so the pins aren't worn out. I tried super gluing the front of the hinge pin to the a-arm however this didn't work at all and I ended up breaking an A arm because of it ( the hole where the pin goes through the arm cracked.).

Any suggestions would be awesome.

Is the set screw backing out? There is a set screw hole for each pin on the top of the block.
