Got the 22 2.0 steering rack for my 17.5 truck. Like the ball stud placement, but dirt & dust still going to be a problem for it wearing out I think.

I just got the new rack also and have a question,I was wondering since the ballstud has been moved,do I need to change the bumpsteer at all,I'm currently at 1mm.with the old style rack and love the way it drives,do I need to make any adjustments to keep it exactly the way it is with the 2.0 rack

i fi remember correctly, the ballstud position on the 2.0 rack is moved up 2mm, to allow for zero bumpsteer if needed
and with the balls positioned horizontal, I think you can adjust ackermen, I think
i'm not 100% sure, casper or frank should chime in.

how about you get out and test it before you go and say its going to be a problem?

He actually said he thinks its going to be a problem, not it is going to be a problem and he has good reason for that as its the same design concept as the original which had problems.

I did test it. It would be fine if I had a nice groomed track to practice on. But when you live 4hours away from your fravorite track 702 rcraceway. You have to make do with your backyard practice track. Its loamy dirt and I can't always use water on it. So dust and debris gets in the rack. I clean it after every run but the damage gets done while driving it.

Also I did not change any bump steer I still have it at 1mm. I run the 25 degree kick plate with 5 degree caster blocks. I am running 27.5 in the shocks with green springs from 22t. I am super happy with my handling on my backyard track. ride height is 28mm.

The new system does have adjustable ackerman due to the horizontal ball studs. It was also redesigned to be taller to help with heal toe wobble as well as new plastics. We will just have to see how it all works for all of us on if it last longer or not. It should perform better though.

Thank you for that feedback. I'm going to grind my pin and also try the shrink tube trick for now, but since my CVDs need replacing anyway, I'll probably try the MIP kit in a few weeks.

I know this has probably been asked so I do apologize, but "if" and "when" is the 22sct2.0 coming out? Any word?

Question, my 22sct is pulling to the right under power. The shock fluids are good, tires good, tried with a gear and ball diff, steering trim good, bearings good, and it's still doing the same thing. It's driving me crazy!! Has anyone had the same problem??

Check the pins that connect your axles to the cvd's. Mine had pulled out slightly and was causing me to spin out when I turned. When I looked at them, they had worn away some of the aluminum from the rear hub.

as said earlier, check your CVD's.
also, give all your bearings a good test. maybe use the bearing baster from RPM.
I lost mine, need to find that thing!

Hey guys. Looking to get more steering out of my truck. I'm currently running the Frank Root set-up that was posted a while back for low traction tracks. Only differences are no aluminum camber block. I am running the brass shim and aluminum kick up plate. I have 1/2 oz in front of the front tower, the brass tyranny weights, 3/4oz in the back of the battery tray, and my shorty pack is all the way forward. The last time out with this set-up I couldn't get it to turn at all. I'm running it again tomorrow in a series race. Thanks
