So you can run shorter links if necessary - say if you use the inside positions on the rear camber link - you may have trouble getting the stock link short enough without modifying the ball ends.

The better question is why Do they only give you 1 link - obviously 1 link of each size is only good to replace a lost link. That's like only giving you one spring.

Yeah, and with the support kit, they give you one (1) spare spring of each flavor... lol, who loses just one spring? haha

Not true...You get 2 pairs for the front and rear that are one rate softer and one rate stiffer than the springs that come with the truck.

No they give you 4 pairs of springs - front green & black and rear pink and white. I already have green and pink from the 22T and white and black from buying separately. And anyway I run the rear buggy springs.

It does come with the piston but no extra springs. I thought that was missing as well but it's in there.

I did all the break in and everything seems normal. I guess I will try and tighten the slipper some more.... Everything is quiet. It just doesn't feel like it is grabbing. I have to get speed, no torque.

If your slipper is slipping that much you should be able to hear it slipping . I usually set my slippers to slip 1-2 feet on the track surface . If your diff is slipping you will hear a barking sound , if it is your diff tighten it up right away or you will melt the diff gear .

newbie questions but how can you tell your slipper is slipping 1 to 2 ft before it grabs? I have tried to see it myself just not sure what I am looking for or listening for.

I got my HK RX's in yesterday and put one in my 22 buggy to replace my SR3100 and i get a LOT more range out of it and it seems so much smoother!

I am saving my other for the 22SCT.

Follow up to bad diff thrust washer. I had the inner thrust washer shatter on my diff. Yesterday I called customer service. They are sending me a complete diff service kit because he didn't show the thrust assembly in stock.
TLR CUSTOMER SERVICE ROCKS.

Default Gear diff

I thnk the gear diff is a great option for those who like to race more than wrench. I've seen somewhere in the posts somebody put 5,000 in for starters. I'm not a good enough driver to tell the difference. Will propably install one after my ball diff is worn out. Alot of talk over in the 22 buggy section about gear diffs "diffing out". You should check it out.
