I assumed that was going to be the next hopup everyone was going to talk about and I was going to be ahead of the game....LOL. We run them on our 8ights and SCTEs so I assumed we would also on the 22SCTs.

The way the chassis is shaped you wouldn't lose any ride height.

I don't know of anybody currently making one. It wouldn't surprise me if either DE or T-bone eventually made one. But this being a truck made for racing, usually people wouldn't run one, I can't think of the last time I saw someone running a skidplate on a dedicated racer like a 22B, RB5 or B4.1 or anything. I think they're more for your Basher or Basher/casual racer.

Losi guys crawling all over this thread - THIS IS WHY every RC my family and i own are Losi. Made for racers by racers - I will be purchasing this and the parts and am excited to start out of the box with a great piece. Try this in the big race car world...right.
Thank you, it's been more fun than my real job

There isn't a part's list available, so you'd have to go through it part by part and see which parts have different part numbers. It would probably be a lot cheaper (certainly easier) just to buy the kit. But if you REALLY wanted to, it could be done.

That would just mis-shape the ballcups and make them pop off easier. The problem with them popping isn't with them being too tight or too loose, it's when the suspension is fully compressed the hex part of the ballcup is hitting the edge of the steering rack which pops it off at the rack and sometimes if the hit is hard enough, it transers the energy down the line and can even pop the entire turnbuckle off. I really think the "EASYE" mod listed on the first page is a great solution until the TLR comes out with one of their own, perhaps captured ball ends on the rack only? But Frank did mention that they're working on a fix for it, so they do know and are aware of the problem. I'm glad they've acknowledged it and are working hard to remedy it, other manufacturers would've just stuck their head in the sand and pretended it wasn't there. Once again proving TLR/Losi's commitment to quality! I do like the captured ball ends a member posted pix of a few pages back. I might even throw that on the first page as an alternative to the ballcups. BTW, I know you're a kid saving up to buy this truck and almost there and very excited about doing so. When I was a kid, I remember having to save up for expensive "toys" and wow that wait seemed like forever. But once I had finally saved enough and bought it on my own, that's both a great lesson in life in how to save for what you want as well as a great feeling of accomplishment. Good job buddy, almost there! Now go mow a neighbors lawn or wash their car so you can get your truck that much sooner! hehehe Good luck!

With no servo saver, I don't like the idea of captured rod ends for steering. Something's got to give. I'm not a serious enough racer to risk a servo for a DNF.
