I wonder how many parts are compatible between the 22 2.0 buggy and this? Might be a good second class without having to buy all different spares.

In looking at descriptions and (very limited) parts list on the Horizon site it looks like there are only a few new 22T 2.0 specific parts:
Spindles (to work with bell cranks and 2.0 buggy castor blocks) TLR234044
Rear arms TLR234042
Driveshafts and axles TLR232031 (bones only are TLR232032)
Chassis (lighter and has screw to hold MM block) TLR231033
New bodies - no PN listed yet for RM or MM

The other parts all appear to be from 2.0 SCT (front and rear (longer) shocks, +75mm rear hexes, ESC mount, battery mount, bell crank kit) or 2.0 buggy (castor blocks and rear hubs). Of course there are also the upgrades to HD ballcups and turnbuckles, king pins, hinge pins and diff parts.

Some descrepancies in the initial info between TLR site and Horizon: Shock pistons - TLR shows 1.5 and 1.6 and Horizon shows 1.6 and 1.7 (Frank's video confirms 1.5 1.6R). Both sites indicate the kit comes with alum washers and alum rear camber block but none of the pictures show that. It would also be nice if the kit comes with alum rear hexes as the 2.0 SCT kit does.

Overall looks good!! Fine job TLR! Glad to see you include both RM and MM in the kit for $299 (Horizon listed price).

I'm glad TLR stepped-up and got back in the game. I'm sure they felt a little pressure from AE with the release of the T5M in March, and probably didn't want to announce the new truck quite yet, but felt as though they might loose customers if they didn't step-up and match AE on release date.

I personally won't be getting one soon, as I have resently purchased a used 1.0T and added many upgrades to it. Drives like a dream.

Here's to the comeback of stadium at club level !!!!!

Come to find out the production car has been in the hands of certain TLR drivers for a while and being tested racing...

How do we know that Dakota didn't win NATS with a 2.0 MM truck? The new and original do not look much different.

Assuming the pictures in the link below are of the winning truck, they show the 1.0 castor blocks (only one hole), rear hubs, hexes and driveshafts. He uses the bell cranks but the 2.0 looks to improve on what he ran at the nationals.

Pretty sure someone already has. I'll chime in there as well.

New track layout, went from tight technical to open n fast. My truck that felt really good now is loosy goosey. I started by swapping to softer springs blue F/ yellow R to green F/ white R. Then tried dropping shock oil 2.5 37.5F/32.5R. These changes helped a lil. I dropped rear more to 27.5, using 2x1.7 piston f/r. This got me to thinking though that maybe i need to add weight. I run mm w square battery r10 esc reedy 8.5. For those that have added wieght where and how much? Is there an overall wieght of car you shoot for?

Anyone have the part number for the Kyosho gold springs Dakota used in his setup. I see he used buggy rear springs and figured he may have done the same for the front.

I know the 2.0 is coming out, but it's not out yet.

I have a big race this weekend and want to run the old 22T so here is my question.

To run the bellcrank conversion or to not? I have it on there now but you can tell there are issues, it doesn't get the full throw of the steering with this on there and the angle of the rack creates a ton of bump steer.

So on the ORIGINAL 22T, in mid motor form, what is the lesser of two evils? The slider rack or the bellcrank?

I just switched from the 2.0 slider rack to the bell cranks in my 22T. I found the change to be positive, however it did not feel nearly as pronounced as on the 22 2.0. The steering output feels more linear now, with a smaller chance of getting more steering than requested/expected at low and mid speed. I ended up getting a series win in Stock Truck the weekend I made the change.

Did you leave the original spindles on your car? Did you use TLR6065 steering links?
