Thumbs up Run MC Clay ib front

Clay compound in front and super soft rear.

But, to smooth the truck out, I'm going to switch to Pressure Points in the front as one of the fast guys at my track suggested (running Bar Codes in the back). The rear of the truck still dives in sweepers a bit too much, so may try moving the shocks out on the tower.

I get the truck this coming Wednesday. Anything particular I should look for? Truck has about 5 race days on it. Has aluminum front hubs, aluminum rear link mount. I race for fun, no national champ hopes here. Bought because I got a good deal on it and I wanted to try it. Have ran the SC10.2, xxx-sct, Anza Slash and thought I should try this

On the outdoor track, green subcultures are a pretty "safe" tire to run. May not be the fastest, but will work regardless of if the track is dry, wet, dusty or grooved. Any good "standard" set ups that are pretty easy to drive. I don't like too much set up changes. I just like to show up and drive and have fun.


hey Casey

awesome choice for a truck, run Caspers set up with swaybars, last time out I was running some digits and trouble ran holeshots, over at loosenuts we ran barcodes and rebars and at the dome we will run holeshots, and if you plan on running it on carpet, go with a mid motor set up, trust me, also if you plan on selling it, text me, I will buy it

The issues of roll, center, camber gain and weight transfer as they relate to side bite while turning is heady stuff. Tuning with camber links is advanced tuning that is confusing at best. No wonder that it's hotly debated among racers at all levels of experience every time it comes up.

Personally, I always gain a little insight from such exchanges. Trying to understand the complicated interactions of chassis geometry by tuning with camber links should continue until whoever asks a question whenever gets an answer he/she can finally understand and put to good use. I want to know what the TLR pros, experienced experts, and the rest of us are doing with their 22SCTs and why.

Really good insight on 2wd RC racers in general and the 22SCT in particular. Thanks to everyone who shares questions and knowledge from their personal experiences. That's why I browse here!
I also very much appreciated the question and answers to this topic....

Caspers responses were insanely professional, compassionate and informative.

Hey guys,just made a change over from a sc10.2 to a 22sct,my main question is with the wheels,I still have a bunch of good tires and wheels for my sc10,mainly the jconcepts +3 wheels,I was wondering if there was any way maybe using certian hexes or spacers that I would be able to use these wheels on my losi

I think you may be SOL on this one. Maybe you could find a different axle to use and a more narrow hex in the rear to accommodate the +3 rims. But I don't think there's anything you'll be able to do in the front.

I actually went the opposite way when I got the SC10.2 and was able to widen the axles and hexes to use the 0 offset losi rims as I continue to run. My SCTE and 22SCT alongside my SC10.2.

Has anyone ever mounted the speedo under the tray where the speedo mount is? Lower the center of gravity a little more?

Advantage. Lower CG

Disavantage. Less cooling for ESC (may only be an issue with mod).
A little harder to route wires to motor
Less battery position options.

Just to name what came off the top of my head.

So I'm guessing if I use regular sc10 wheels that aren't +3 then they should fit right up with no width problems

Yup. The regular SC10 wheels are 0 or very near 0 offset. The only issue you may encounter is the webbing on the inside of the wheel not clearing the hubs/steering assemblies - especially on the SCTE

Usually AE style rims are about 1mm narrower per side. I have been using them as a tuning option on my truck. Have 1mm spacers that I add when I want to go wider.

Well since we've been told there's no 22T 2.0 in the works, does anyone know if there's talk of a 22SCT 2.0?

I have ofetn thought of putting the ESC up front, and moving the battery back farther. but then you have the wires running all the way up the chassis.

I guess it depends on what ESC you have, like an RS Pro or VTX10R should run reasonbly cool, my vtx10R has never come off more then 110*... ever. but then again I am running 17.5 blinky at the moment.

I would commit to it if you do, dremel the battey roof thingy(?) off to get more airflow, heck, a small fan may do the job if worry about.
