Are the stock rear hubs on the 22sct the same as the ones on the buggy? They look like they are the same, but molded a little different.

As far as I am aware all the 22 series run the same rear hub.

has anyone found a fix for the back kicking out .
it seems to be a big problem here in the midwest racing on indoor dirt tracks.
everyone you talk to has the same problem with this truck.
been all over set up trying to tame it.its so bad you would think its a tire issue.but many of us have been trying every tire combination with no help.
any suggestions would be great and appreciated!!!

I believe the 22t has a different rear hub.

Look down this page and it lists a rear hub for the 22. Even includes narrow hexes in the photo!

I am not aware of any differences in the rear hubs between the three 22 cars. They all have different drive hexes and axles but the hub itself is the same.

I am using the savox1258tg, very very similar to the s6040, with the alum. horn. the book said to use 2.5mm shims for the spekky servos, but I had the same issue of the horn hitting the rack when steering to the left. I ended up removing the shims completely (after trial and error of 2mm, 1.5mm, and 1mm) to get enough clearance.
For some reason, alot of the onroad guys at my local track use the JRX-S steering links for something (I don't have an onraod car...yet), so my LHS has a TON of those links on hand.
I will pick up some and give your set up a shot!
I am running 17.5 blinky, should I invest in shorty packs? I am think the Xcellorin 3800 or Gens ace.

Your right I thought you meant hexes.

As far as the xcellorin pack both of the ones I had puffed pretty fast. But I haven't had any problems with them after that. They are just puffed.

This has nothing to do with spacing of the servo or hitting on the top brace. It is hitting the center support of the servo arm itself. Spektrum has a couple different case configurations. The H6040 is virtually the same servo as the S6040 but the ears are in very different positions on the case.

As for batteries the Xcelorin ones will swell a little but stablize after that. I have been running Venom packs for a while now and they are staying the same size and work great as well.

For the new set up are the links you are using on the servo needed? Or are the ball cups still good?

Stock cups work fine. This is something Todd posted a while back so I was trying them and noticed the contact. I am not sure if it is as bad with the stock cups or not the effort it took to get them on and the fact I did not want to take the car apart again I just adjusted. I am not sure this is a problem with the stock setup?

I used my dremel to remove a little bit where it was making contact and no problems ever.

They go on the very end of the car. The two screws that attach the top of the tranny case right above the rear bumper.

If you look at the rear hubs in these set up sheets they look different on the SCT. They look the same other than the little lip on the inside edge of the hub. The reason i ask is i broke one on my SCT and the one out of the new bag looks slightly different.
