I have the X-rings to go in the shocks, and was kicking around the idea of getting the new shock shafts and bushings. I'm sure my OCD will kick in and I'll have to do them too. I keep thinking that I'm going to put the new 2.0 spindles and caster blocks on but the trucks runs so good right now I don't know if it would be worth it?

Getting a 22sct and was wondering which 2.0 upgrades to get?
Do they make shocks shafts like the 2.0 for the 22sct ?

There's nothing wrong with it out of the box. The steering rack will probably get real sloppy over time.

Caleb - Shock shafts are avail for the truck. I haven't used the 2.0 parts on my SCT yet. Driving the buggies, I couldn't feel a whole lot of difference between 1.0 and 2.0 geometry. The biggest difference is just how smooth the 2.0 shocks are. I have the 2.0 parts, but I won't use them until I have a need. (something breaks or wears out)

For what it's worth...I'm running the alum. front bulkhead with 25 degree plastic kick shim, and 5 degree 1.0 caster blocks. The stock 30/10 setup is just too much, I think. 30/10 would be for a loose/low bite/rough track which is not what we're running on.

I'd say the only thing you may want to get is the alum ft bulkhead and the 5 degree casters. They're the only extra bits I purchased to run my current setup.

If you come to the track Sat. you're more than welcome to take it for a test drive.

You may be able to get away with just getting the shock seals and bushings, and waiting on the shafts til the OEM wear out. Just be aware that the four little plastic 2.0 bushings are $14!!!

Definitely get the front bulkhead and 5 degree casters though.

Hm, interesting. I tried white springs in the rear a while back, and the car kept washing out. I think it was you who advised me to move back up to the yellow. The rear was basically collapsing in turns, so the tires were never digging into the clay for traction. But I can definitely try it again. If that fails, I'll lower the camber links as you suggest. Thanks!

Default Gear diff advice!

I'm attempting to put together my newly purchased TLR 22SCT and having problems. I thought this was a popular truck, and can't seem to find any info, or parts for it?? I'm wanting to put a GEAR diff in it instead of the Ball diff that came with it, and can't find any info. Any help is highly appreciated, Thanks, Ron

Does raising the diff the 1mm affect side bite??

I'd like to hear any ideas for rear side bite, done heaps of reading and finding different setup advice says opposite things and you can get lost very fast!

Any advice and tips for running on very loose tracks?

Cheers.
Anybody?

for low bite, you could try adjusting the anti-squat a little.
what tires & compounds are you running?

I tried the Buggy White rear springs a while ago, my truck plowed the front end a bite more then I would like. I would try going to the inside on the arm with yellow. as I remember, caspers setup was outside front and back on the arms.

shorty pack is the easiest way to reduce weight, good for stock class. I don't know if its the how ticket for all tracks though. i would try a relatively low cost (china) shorty before you put $90-$100 in a shorty pack. just so you get a feel and understand the handling characteristic change of the shorty.
I currently have a Gforce 4600 45c, $29 at valuehobby, and $6 shipping (for 3 batteries) and it was at my door in 3 days.

Check the first page of this thread. Literally every available part is listed there.

Losing traction in off camber corners is normal, and it's only exaggerated by running on a low traction surface. There's no instant fix other than to be easier on the throttle. Raising the transmission to increase traction is something that has been done with mixed results since the 22 first came out, but like anything or any set up change it's something you have to try and see if it works for you as your results may differ.
