I agree, I did the same thing since there was no SCT coming I got the RCRD conversion kit... But its ok, I will just get the ssSCT parts to make all of my truck 22SCT and it will be good to go... BUT the ballcups popping off was a bit annoying last night...

Otherwise the truck jumped and handled great!

You need to realize that no Horizon or TLR employee , racer can say something new is coming out or not . You should of had a clue when the XXX-SCT prices had dropped .

Well then you do t say anything not that there is no truck coming out. I realize how things work but that was a mistake to say no truck is coming. Just stay quiet.

I agree, a simple statement like "something is in the works" would have sufficed... But some companies don't want to do this...

BUT other companies release pictures of preproduction rides though... Look at the Hobao buggy, with a release date in Oct yet pictures are out there...

But for those of us who have converted trucks.. I would say to keep them and race them, they are for the most part a 22SCT...

I will be happy if I can just get mine within roar width right now... Need to get some 0 offset wheels and I will be close!

Default Ball cup popping

Yes, I did the ball cup mod. I had the steering ball cups pop off the rack quite a few times also. That issue aside, great truck. I ran the kit set up and it's very smooth, if not a little springy in the front end. I'll get the fixed, no problem.


EXTREMELY WELL DONE TLR!!!!!!

Thank you for another great vehicle!

It fits but this Spektrum Servo extension makes life a little easier and provides a little extra length to route your wires.

This extension really helps if your ESC wires are a bit on the short side as well.

one of the side guards in my kit had a mold error. one of the tabs was not there (each attachment point has two tabs and the piece on the chassis gets sandwiched between them). should i just email horizon or what is the procedure?

Hi all,
Is there already an astro mid-motor setup available somewhere? TLR site doesn't have one.
Cheers
