Just curious...can someone explain why +.75mm or whatever hexes are used on the 22SCT (rear I think?) and on the 22 2.0 (front I think?) also? I guess they aren't build to roar max widths?

I was battling with hot motors when I first got this truck too. Took me a while to figure out what was wrong. Eventually I narrowed it down to the transmission not spinning freely, but no matter how loose I left the screws, it would bind. Turns out one of the inner bearings was bad! So... pull the motor away from the spur and spin the spur. It should continue to spin for a few seconds, butter smooth, with no binding. That would be my first guess. After that, as others have already said, check the rest of the drivetrain and gearing. I can run for 30 minutes straight and come off the track at 120 degrees, geared 25/78.

the wider hexes are a tuning option, and are only available for the rear to my knowledge.

all the hexes vary in thickness, from the T to the B to the SCT. and they are different front to rear.

sometimes these need a little more attention, especially for 17.5 Blinky!

Ok after my 1st race with my 22SCT, not a bad day. I was TQ for the A-main, found that keeper the blue springs on the front helped me rear end stay planted for most the day.
I was chasing trying to add steering and making the front end to soft.

Well here comes the mains and track started to dry out. Hard packed clay with a light dust and the truck was fighting for traction everywhere.

During the morning (damp clay) Clay Ions are the tire, Mid afternoon everyone changes to MC Subs as the track dries.
My 22 2.0 buggy was hooked up all day! 2nd place A-main and I only gave 1st place away in the last 3 laps.. Nerves. (guh)

Can someone make some recommendations with the truck that will help gain traction with out adding a bunch of weight or taking away steering. (we have a small tight track)
I am back to the stock set up with 7G above the tranny and the rear hubs all the way forward.

Here is a video SC main in case someone wants to see the track layout or clay condition.
Horriable driving after I was hacked in the corner.

Is anyone running a Viper VTX10R or Black Edition with this truck I want to know if the receiver wire is long enough to reach up front from the ESC deck? Also if anyone is running one is it smooth and how are the breaks? Thanks guys.

mine is long enough. if you run caspers set up (1 CR pad back). you can move the RX back a little if its a little short.

Caspers set up works really well for me.

in all honesty, you really should try this set up:
http://www.petitrc.com/setup/losi/se..._OCRC20121224/

it does wonders to the kit, everywhere.

EDIT: there are a few changes to that set up, one of which I know is that on the rear hub is 3mm, not 2mm.
and I think casper is running the Low Frequency Yellow rear spring. But, the listed buggy yellow are fine.
off the top my head you'll want/need:
Associated (molded) or TLR (machined) 12mm piston sets, if you dont want to glue and drill the stock pistons.
Truck green front spring
Buggy yellow rear spring
CR battery foams

I recommend the new 22 2.0 buggy steering rack, takes away all the goofy bumpsteer the car has stock.

Andrew Thanks, I will try that set up and hope to get some track time before our trophy race on the 26th.
I do have the new 2.0 steering rack and the machined shock parts already. Just have not installed them.

I alot of set ups mention the CR battery foam. I am assuming its the foam block from the older CR model XXX's ? What is the length of that battery foam if a guy just was to order a avid one etc.
Thanks again! JJ

The CR battery foam is close to two stock pads.

The truck looks pretty decent actually! You'll pick up a lot of time if you make the track smaller. IE: keep a nice tight line. It'll also keep other trucks from coming inside and taking the line/spinning you out.

Looks like that corner you actually turned in on the other truck.

As for tuning - where do you want to add traction (front .. rear?) and what is your current setup? Once my truck is how I like it, the biggest changes I do are springs and rear camber setting. I pretty much only use green and blue on the front and white yellow on the rear. More steering, green spring (less is blue). More rear traction, white (less is yellow).

If you don't have the truck close to where you want it, then as others have mentioned, Casper/Dunfords is great (see petitrc.com for that).

I ran the 2.0 parts (front and rear) on my SCT on Friday night. I really liked it. Ran with blue springs front, yellow (HF) rear. 30/27.5 on the oils and set the ride height to 28/24 (as suggested on here). I thought it was pretty dialed in. Could have used a little more steering, but I think I can make that happen by changing springs and possibly tires.

Thank you for the advice, its rear traction I was fighting for. Steering was good all day as long as I held my line. (In the main I didn't) LOL

I have most of the parts for Casper/Dunsford set up so I will try setting the truck up with week and see if I can sneak a couple packs in around work this weekend. Thanks!
