The truck is kit setup with a few option parts. It does have light sway bars front and rear. I just got back from the track with the truck and tools. I know that I have some setup work to do, but was surprised the inside rear unloaded so easily. No biggie, I love the quality of the truck and am looking forward to getting it dialed in.

The track surface is damp, hard packed dirt. I am getting huge traction with my XXX.
Thanks
Thanks for the compliments. Congrats on your truck, it sounds like you're just a few minor tweeks away from having it pretty dialed. I have to say, all the people in this thread have been awesome and helpful toward one another, it's great to have such valuable resources as other experienced racers along with the pros like Ryan Dunford, Casper Nielson and Frank Root along with a few others popping in too! I'd do what Andrew Thom suggested, I think those were good suggestions. Also, which springs and shock oil are you running?

You're welcome Frank, I'm glad it was helpful to you!

On another note did the traxxas captured steering link mod and all is well. The ball links actually have larger dia. links compared to the 4 mm losi ones so my titanium links go back in my box. Not a big fan of traxxas parts on my 22, may switch over to the SCTE ends.
No defective spindles that I'm aware of. I think it's just that the blend of plastic/nylon that TLR's using isn't friendly to super cold weather, those of us on the Left coast haven't been experiencing the same problems as those of you on the east or in cold climates. I'm with you, normally I wouldn't really care to have any Traxxis parts on my car either, but this is one area that they work VERY well. I haven't had even one problem since I made the switch and I was able to give my truck a little bling while I was at it Remember, you're only doing the steering links, so the rest can stay with your Ti buckles.

Sound's like Joker's in need of an RC trip out to Cali to check out our awesome tracks!!! We really are very lucky out here to have many VERY good and world class tracks all within 2 hours of each other and most are within an hour. OCRC and West Coast are only about 15-20 min from each other. I Raced WCRC tonight and OCRC tomorrow, life's good out here! Come on out!

Thank you for your reply. You are exactly right, the truck is set up as 2B. Moving it to 1B will be the first thing I try! It's kind of cool that I am able to run kit setup to start with. As I go through all the awesome information listed here, I'll have a "feel" for what each change does. Thanks for your input!

If you ever happen to make it to Omaha, plan on racing whatever class you want with any of my trucks/buggies/cars you'd like!

Thanks Steve. Right now it has blue/yellow and 30 F/R. The guy I got it from is a friend and local Pro-2 "fast guy". Since he only ran it maybe 4 heats, it still needs some setup work and I'm waiting on the body before it hits the track in full "race mode". But, since I had the electronics in, I had to take a few laps

The truck did come with nearly every available option part, so I'm pretty excited to start running it soon!

Thanks

My boy ran the casper/dunford set up yesterday his stock truck was awesome(TQ and 1st) in his mod 13.5 tekin boosted it was pretty good I would like to get a little more forward traction. I ran the rear hubs in the middle on his mod,would moving them forward help and maybe moving the rear shock to the inside help? He got 3rd in mod so it was pretty good just need a little more forward grip. Thanks for any input.

Yes moving the hubs forward should help with more forward bite. We found this setup with the extra droop really helped with the forward bite so we took out all the weight we were using to try and compensate for this. If you have all the droop settings like we posted the setup and still think you need more forward bite it might not hurt to add 1oz back to the rear and give that a try. In theory a slightly longer rear camber link should help with forward bite as well but I have not tried that to see how it would effect the rest of the setup.

I had one spindle break due to a full speed collision on the straight with a spun out truck. (only part that broke!) I had a second one break running in pretty cold weather landing awkward off a decent size triple. I went to the alum just because. Most reports of spindles breaking on this truck seem to be cold weather related. Not all but most. And yes engineers drool over these things!

Gonna build my 22SCT later this week. Bought a Radiopost servo on the recommendation of the place I bought it. Anyone know how many shims if any I need with a Radiopost servo?

no clue for a radiopost, I run Savox. but I do know it is different if you use the alum. servo horn vs. the plastic one. it was for me.

Just wondering with the Dunford/Casper set up what do you mean by use blue springs if you want more push?
Also what do the 1.5 buggy hexes do?

Blue front springs will not have the low speed steering of the green front springs. So depending on your traction and how agressive you like the turn in of your truck you can go to blue front springs to take away some turn in or make the truck "push" going into the corner a little more.

1.5 buggy hexes in the front are slightly wider the the stock hexes.

Basicaly the 1075 have 2mm more trail,meaning the axles sit a further 2mm back from the kingpins than on the 1073's. Most folks feel the 1075's have a smoother turn in than the 1073's.

Here's a list I made based on that setup. It's a personal list so it has some extras like aluminum battery mount, etc. But follow the setup sheet. I included part numbers and descriptions.

tell you right now, get the sway bars
