from just eyeballing my 22t and Sct, i would guess ~2mm longer body on the T, which is close to what franks setup calls for.

EDIT: buggy Red rear spring seems a little stiff.

does anyone know the inner diameter of the tlr shock springs? i have searched everywhere. i am using 22t shocks on the rear of my traxxas slash and the traxxas springs are rubbing the threads on the shock body. any help would be appreciated.

Not trying to be a smart A$$ here but why don't you just get some Losi Springs?

i think losi springs are the same as traxxas if not a little smaller diameter, at least the ones on my xxx-sct are. so i assume the tlr springs are bigger.

No spacer on inside of axle or can you use the 1.0 axle also? 1.7 piston in front and 1.6 in rear?

The 22T shocks are 12mm big bore shocks, they are bigger than the xxx-sct shocks, the big bore springs are cheap and will not rub.

Frank Root 22SCT Standard Setup 2014 Indoor

"Frank has been running quite a bit of 2wd Short Course lately, really focusing on developing a new setup for the 22SCT. Trying to find a setup that fit his driving style, but also that of some of his stock class club racing friends (Lee Caldwell and Craig Hammon), they worked to find an easy to drive, but quick setup that had a great natural balance. Frank thinks he's found it with the setup above. It is easy to drive, and not only Frank, but Craig and Lee, are turning some quick laps with it. Some parts from the 22 2.0 and 22T are required, but they are well worth it. Give it a shot and let us know what you think!"
I get this error. is there a different link?

Thanks!

Just one question. It says on both ends to unscrew the shaft ends 5 turns. That sure dont leave many threads inside the end does it? 5 full turns around?
