I got a gear diff for it, there's kind of a bevel on one side of the gear and the screws that hold it together on the other. Does it matter which way it goes in?

Thanks Casper, Finally got the truck on the track last nite. Once I knocked the rust off my skills somewhat, I was very impressed with the handling. Only thing that happened was front ball cups. Is it correct to put tlr22 aluminum rear hexes on the front of my 22t to prevent the cups from popping off?

Yes, that'll solve the issue.

Also I know some people are going with captured ends by the wheels. Not sure what is best/cheaper. Just some food for thought

This truck has been known to have a small problem with steering links popping off. This is typically solved with alum clamping hexes to reduce front wheel flex but some opt to use a captured ball cup instead.

Any ideas on how to remove bumpsteer? Searched the thread and go no results. Tried shims inside and outside and it only made it worse.

+1, would like to know too!

Playing with spindle height maybe, but should modify droop also?

I think I read somewhere that the new 2.0 stearing rack helps. I haven't tried it yet but that might be a good starting point.

For bump steer, what I found that works for me, I adjust the steering tie-rod to a similar angle as the camber link tie-rod.

Keep in mind that some setups require bump steer in order for them to work properly. It is like making a cake, you forget or change one ingredient and it turns out terrible. So it can be your friend.

Regarding the aluminum upgrades TLR offers. What is mandatory and what is optional. Only looking for performance enhancing. I did all the available upgrades plus some carbon ones on my 22 SCT. Spent 3 months and went throught two trucks dialing in a setup and it dominates. But I'm fresh to the 22T platform and could use some guidance. My T4.2 is good but I want great. My team manager harasses me constantly about running TLR and I'm looking to prove him wrong.

I would also like to know what are the must have hop ups to make these trucks great. I just ordered a 22t before they are all gone.

No washers, in or out. You can also try the 22 2.0 rack, which has a 2mm higher ball stud on the inside/rack which helps. And we also have Low Mount Ball Studs which can help: http://www.tlracing.com/Products/Def...odID=TLR234000.

Will the low ball studs increase the ball cups popping off? I currently run all lunsford ball studs/ turnbuckles and only have that issue on the steering links. Prob going to captured ends.
