Hmm ok thanks for tip! Running mine like 1/8 turn out. It just turns the motor while turning the wheel and is butter smooth. I guess I still have some work to do.

I purchased and installed the bell crank steering system (TLR231027). Do I also need new caster blocks? I am using the 22 5 degree blocks. The spindle stops on the the caster block much shorter than the old caster blocks lessening the turning radius.

Yes you will need the 2.0 castor blocks. Tlr234006

So I guess the part description from Losi is inaccurate if additional parts are required:

"This is a directly bolt on for all 22 platform vehicles and includes ALL parts required including a 22 2.0 and 22SCT specific spindle and an M3.5 x 50mm HD Turnbuckle (22, 22 2.0) to convert your TLR vehicles."

From the TLR web site:

This bell crank system can work with the 22T as well, but it does not use the updated sprindles and requires TLR6065 Turnbuckle, HD, 70mm (2): 22SCT as well.

Not very clear, but it is there...

The 22T does not require the included spindles whereas the 22SCT (which I have) does used the included spindles. The issue is the lack of information for the castor blocks. The descriptions does not say in any way that the new caster blocks are required.

The original blocks bolt up but I changed to the 2.0 blocks so everything would be 2.0. The new blocks do have multiple spots for the camber link where the 1.0 only has one.

TLR231027 Bell Crank Steering Sytem: My little rant.

The instruction sheet is a joke. I'll figure it out, but it is laughable.
-There is no parts list for TLR231027.
-The exploded view has parts not in the kit.
-The exploded view is missing parts that are in the kit.

I agree. Not to mention you need new castor blocks.

Okay, so I have my own questions about the new bell cranks. I got everything put together and the offset ball cup supplied with the kit hits the base of the ball stud impacts the suspension travel to the point that the cup pops off the ball. So I did a bit of dremeling to relieve for the ball stud base and then it was hitting the caster block. I ended up having to remove quite a bit of material to make it even work. I do have the new caster blocks by the way. In addition, there is a crap-ton of slop even with the included shim washers between the top bulkhead and the bell cranks. Anyone else seen this?

Can you post a pic of it? Sounds like something is not right. Is your bulkhead, pivot block, and servo mounts all keyed togethered?

Is the offset ball cup on the bell crank side or the wheel side? I had the exact same issue and had the offset ball cup on the wheel side. The offset goes on the bell crank side. I found going to the SCT 2.0 kit instructions helped a lot with installing the bell crank.

Alright, I got it figured out. I WAS running the offset rod ends on the wheel side. After fixing this I ran with no issues this week. I will say that the way I was running it before had quite a bit less bump steer than the "correct" way. That was why I switched them in the first place. There should probably be an offset on both ends.
