Finally got my 22T to turn some decent laps. I had been struggling with far too much steering and not near enough rear forward grip or side bite. I added some weight to the rear and changed the shock package to keep weight transfer towards the rear. I want to go up in oils to calm the entire truck down. Our new track layout has some tricky jumps and my truck is springing off the jumps. Cool to watch, but not good for lap times. I think if I calm both ends of the truck down, it will settle down and fly a bit lower so I can push it a bit harder. However, I finally turned similar lap times to my 22b which is pretty dialed to our track.

Thinking of buying a 22T used to add to my small stable (see below). I see a lot of rollers out there, what is a good motor/esc combo. I would keep it rear motor so I can use the same 2s stick lipos I use in my SCTE 2.0, I have 6 batteries.

Guess that would help! It would be racing, indoor clay. Maybe a stock setup? I am not sure what is a more popular class, that's if I even actually race it, might just run the track but never bash.

Depends on what classes your track runs. Stock truck seems to still be popular on the club scenes from what I have seen. Mod truck class tends to be hard to come by unless it is a large event. With that being said I would go with a stock motor setup.

Cool. Being I am buying a roller, what is a good stock motor/esc to buy? Sorry, I am fairly new and don't know what to look for.

I got a question for frank... With the new bell crank system coming out would those new spindles fit on the 22t arms?

No, you will need to use the existing truck spindles. With a standard sized servo, you can get to full lock, but it will be hard (if not impossible) with a low profile servo.

I would recommend the Novak Vulcan 17.5 w/ Pulse, Impact or GTB3 depending on future needs.
