So without sway bars I need yellow springs?? I already ordered the whites

Where is everyone measuring their ride height? 29mm is higher than I set my 1/8th scale.

I'm wondering if this explanation isn't part of the issue some are having, as I've had this issue on a number of totally unrelated (different mfg's) cars

The links and cups are really, really tight to adjust when new. So tight in fact, that they simply pop off when doing final adjustment. Some just get them to an acceptable length and pop them on.

If you do the latter, and you can't roll the steering links between your finger and feel full range movement, both fore and aft, when you compress the suspension violently, the link and cup are so tight, that they have no choice but to pop off.

I always use a little Losi green lube on the links and cups when new. It makes them easy to adjust immediately. I also make sure that I get full range, forward to back rotation of the cup movement on the ball stud.

As I look at my compressed suspension, the cups are fully clearing all obstacles at both ends. As a matter of fact, I can still rotate the cup/link a pinch while fully compressed (it's close). The only way for that cup to pop off is if I break an arm or shock tower - the cups coming off at that point anyway.

This make sense to anyone? I'm not suggesting anyone is doing anything wrong, I've made this same oversight. It happened to me once, I make sure I have free rotation of the cup/link pair and it's not happened to me since.

A hard, hard, crash? Sure...the cups coming off - that doesn't count.

So I worked on my ball ends quite a bit last night. Never really had to do this before.

First, I pulled all the ball ends off the links and reamed out the very end of the link, first with a body reamer and the with an exacto. Basically opening up the hole that the turnbuckle threads into. This allows for extra clearance when adjusting the turnbuckle all the way in.

Second, I worked each ball cup in and out on the turnbuckle to break in the threads. I used Chapstick as lube and did all 10 ball cups in and out about 5-6 times if not more. The idea here is to make them easier to adjust so they don't pop off.


End result is they stay on better while adjusting.

Anybody notice how little clearance there is between the trailing spindle and the front suspension arm. If I add in any more droop it will definately rub. The spindle is centered as per Ryan's last setup sheet.

Since removing the servo saver from the steering rack from the old design on the xxx platform, this has been a known problem from day one with the steering rack on the new 22 platform. Not as bad with the 22 buggy since it has smaller lighter front tires. It's been an issue with the 22T and now the 22SCT. This is nothing new to TLR they just havent come up with a solution.
The lack of a servo saver is not the issue.

Also would these work?

The kit hexes will work fine with Ten-SCTE wheels, no other hexes are required.

Yes, it really has to do with the bone and arm angles based on the diameter of the tire. Since SC tires and the same diameter as 1/8th (more or less), then the ride height is in the same range as well.

Hey Brian, Pretty much stock setup with a few tweaks. 30wt oil in front shocks, 5 degree caster block, inner bottom rear shock, rest is stock setup.

Did the same thing and wheels still fell off. Don't use the wheel disc.

Yep. 8 total wheels (4 pair). They give you a full set (4) of fake bead locks as well as a full set (4) of wheel disks as well. (wheels are black, covers and rings are yellow).

it would be nice to have all of the spring rates/colors (and TLR part numbers) available for the truck. this being my first 22, there seems to be a lot of options with buggy springs, truck springs, etc and people recommending either type.
Made this myself yesterday.. I have the Excel file as well, if anyone is interested.. PM me your email and I'll send it to ya.

the disc is probally spinning in the wheel. couple drops of ca glue on the outer edge of the disc and score the flange of the wheel nut with a cut off wheel should cure this. just a small amount of glue and you should still be able to pop them off if needed. the disc are cool.....

Yeah, because the discs spin freely on the wheels the use of serrated nuts is pretty much negated.

The discs need to be keyed to the rims somehow, either by glue or an unlikely redesign. That way the serrated nuts are "locked" to the discs which are "locked" to the wheels.

I wish they would just make one piece dish wheels, in yellow of course
