Exactly how bad is the steering slider rack in this truck? as I've seen a lot of people changing them out or modifying them. I'll be running a hard packed indoor clay track so I would think with a lil lithium grease it should work alright and not jam, that exotek steering rack looks real nice so that's the route I'll go if its needed.

Thanks guys.
the tire size is 2.2/3.0. The part number for soft barcodes is JCI3044-01.

The slider is fine for a few races, replace it with the new 2.0 slider when the stock one wears out. Both of them need lubed with something.

I put the RM setup on my truck after running for a couple of months MM......wow, way better for point-n-shoot....we had a dry/slick/ROUGH track this weekend with well below freezing temps and lots of traffic leading to a minefield of a track.....but that new Root RM 2014 setup got me really close...I made a few changes that got it even better....

For starters...I did ALL of the Root 2014 setup...all of the parts....and the recommended mounting of ESC and RX......the WHOLE setup.....except a Pro-line body...need to paint my TLR one...

Then added/changed the following...

RocketRC 22 buggy side pod weights in the front opening on this truck...a little shoe-goo over the top to hold them in...
1mm tranny shims
shorter rear camber link by one hole on the hub
moved rear shocks inside one hole
HB pink Beams all around
3.5deg rear toe-in block
1.5mm 22-2.0 rear hexes (just a little wider than the Root setup)

I had the TQ early in round 1 with the basic 2014 root setup, shorter camber link, and 1-hole inside on the rear shocks...but was still lacking some rear traction...and wanted more stability in the bumpy crud...so I added some side pod and nose weight...too loose off power...took off the nose weight and did the toe block change to 3.5 and the 1mm tranny shim just before the main...wow...I could just HAMMER the gas....great rear traction....

Thanks to Frank for a killer setup....buying all of those extra parts 22-2.0 and 22T....was well worth it from my results this weekend....I've driven this truck for about 2 months now...but this is by far the best I've ever had it....



The 2nd truck was also a 22sct....not sure about 3rd...

I did pretty good in buggy too..TQ and win with my 22-2.0.... In truck...the 2nd fastest truck was also a 22SCT...but he broke in the main....these trucks are SO good...it just makes it easy. In buggy, the next 2 behind me were 22-2.0's.....go TLR!

For the record....I did not really want to spend the cash on all of those parts to take my nearly new SCT to the Root 2014 setup...but I'm glad I did...It's never been better......with the success of adding the longer rear suspension components and the new front end geometry...makes me hope there's a 2.0 version coming soon...I'll be pre-ordering whatever the next SCT that TLR give us...


If any of you want to see our track that this setup worked so well on.....here's a video someone posted of the e-buggy main.....no video of the 1/10 though...that I know of....but it shows you the track...

Running Root's suggested 22-2.0 rear axles and hubs with 22 hexes....the 22 hexes are much shorter and there's a lot of axle sticking out past the wheel...the shoulder on the axle shoulders up before it clamps the wheel to the hex....so you need something outside of the wheel to take up the space between the nut and wheel where the protruding axle is not threaded.

we run the 22T arms, which are longer. Because of this, you need to go with the narrower hex or your rear is too wide.

I have the 22t arms on myself. I was just curious as to what the benefit of running those axles set up like that.

if you run the std hex, you are too wide. Run the buggy rear std hex to get back down to the proper width.

When you put that narrow hex on, you need a spacer to go between the wheel nut and the wheel. The buggy std or .75 hexs re the perfect size, but you can use anything to space it. I just took the clamp screw out and throw on which ever set of hexs I'm not currently using. I have 2 sets of std plus the .75 and 1.5's so it's not really a big deal.

can anyone tell me the difference between the 22 2.0 axels and the 22 axels? was thinking of using tlr 2971 (22 axels) for this conversion. Maybe the hole offset for the hex pin?

Really simple question just wondering when running this truck in midmotor will a fullsize 2s pack fit with a standard length servo? Thanks

the 22 1.0 axle has a 1mm shim built into it. This pushes the bone towards the diff.

The 22 2.0 axle has no 1mm shim. Instead it comes with a 1mm shim that you can slide onto it. We run no shim 99% of the time in the buggy.

I am still running the std axles.

Anyone have a lead on a Exotech Rack conversion for this thing? I broke the stock slider housing in heat 1, and the rack in the B main this weekend.

Everyone I normally use is out of stock on the exotech.

yeah, people are using the exotek set up, i myself am not.
how did you manage to break the housing?? i haven't heard of that before.
i would try the 22 2.0 rack before getting the exotek, i like it a lot.
