Yeah, please post a chart or parts listing to upgrade. particularly suspension pieces. Does the new chassis retain the same screw hole locations? Can I keep using my old chassis and still mount the new battery tray system?

I absolutely love my SCT, I can't wait for this truck to come out and compare the two.

I am curious why its only offered in a RM configuration?

You will need the updated chassis to fully take advantage of the new battery mounting system. The new chassis also allows for lower electronics and is lighter. As far as a parts list for the suspension components, its every plastic suspension part except the rear tower.

We have found that the vast majority use an SC in RM config today and it make it so that vast majority don't have to spend an extra $35 on the kit. Those that want to play with mid motor can buy the conversion kit for that same $35.

with revised body mounts it appears, will our current body hole patterns line right up and drop right on??

also, why still using the wider rear alum hex on back of truck instead of the narrow tlr2930 alum rear hex?

very nice that kit will include the TINI pin kit. I already have that kit on my current 22, nice pieces. also nice to see other alum upgrades come with kit.

The body mounts themselves did not change, we just added the supports between them so your existing bodies should slide right on.

We tested a number of different hex widths and hubs and arms lengths and this is the hex width that was determined to work the best.

Truck looks great, just hope you can find a faster boat to ship it on.

A bit more than that. The rear hub has a narrower off-set, so this new rear arm is even wider than a truck arm but quite a bit. The front arm is also longer given the truck a near maximum track width front and rear. Plus new longer rear shock body/shafts and a taller front shock tower with buggy rear shock body/shaft give the 2.0 much more droop and suspension travel, really makes the truck easier to drive. The rear arm, front arm, rear hub, rear axle, rear CVA bone, rear shock shaft, rear shock body, body shell, bell cranks, 2.0 caster block, 2.0 bell cranks spindle, and longer turnbuckles (for the wider arms) are all updates to suspension geometry/handling.

If not, I basically have built this truck previously using all the 2.0 parts and the Exotek ver. 2 steering bellcrank and can attest that the changes do make the truck handle better.
It is what I posted in the setup, plus a few changes that we couldn't get to with existing parts (for which I had prototypes made for testing). Some concepts though, just a bit further and more improved.

The rear arm and hub are new and I think the axle is a slightly different length but Frank may have to chime in there. (he is getting on a plane so I figured I would answer what I can).


Just overall, this truck is VERY good. Almost every suspension part is updated on it, the truck is wider front and rear, the shocks are new lengths so the truck lands better, and on and on...
Yes, truck is better

New axle and CVA bone length to accommodate the new rear arm length and hub/hex/wheel offset

Thanks for the help today Ryan

Could have been the gear diff. I have never liked one in my car or truck on grip conditions less than carpet/astro/sugar.

New chassis locations in the rear are the same, the front holes moved just a little (basically to line up with the new rear mount to even pad widths. BUT... we made some trick updates to the chassis. The center foam battery pad is now not installed, and the channel is deeps and runs from the rear ESC pocket to the front of the truck to run your ESC to RX wire under the pack. We've also milled out a huge pocket under the servo, and under the rear ESC mounting area which dropped 12-15g per chassis. It also has the holes added in the chassis for the 2.0 battery mount (front) and the M2 screw in the anti-squat pivot (for MM runners).

Cost - Street price is $35 lower without the parts included. Some will use them, many will not, and now we've been able to all a TON of option parts, and upgrades like machined shock parts, grooved slipper plates and an aluminum idler all at a lower street price.

The new front shock tower also has a new body mount. There is a new "inside hole" on the front shock tower, and the tower is taller by a bit. Between these two changes, the old body mount couldn't fit, so we made a new one. I believe the holes still line up, bit I am not 100%.

Default gearing difference 17.5

Hello guys, i have a 22 2.0 and 22sct and was wondering about the gearing differences i beleive both have the same transmission rations, but I am reading that the buggy should be a 30/70 gearing setup. The SCT however is a higher spur combo i think its 76 or 80 tooth. why the large difference, is it because of the weight differences

The size of the tires play a huge difference in gearing a buggy compared to a SCT

I would imagine it comes with an aluminum top shaft and the schelle slipper will fit being a 2.0? Don't think I've seen it anywhere, has there been any work done to the tranny on the MM kit? I'm assuming that most aftermarket parts will fit except the MIP pucks?!?!

You can already place an order for the truck now. It is not available to ship until the middle of November.
