I'm guessing I can't run the 2.0 with the battery all the way back like this? The main problem it creates is you can't access the bullet holes on the battery. Not to mention, you need 1 spacer horizontal and 1 vertical in front of the pack to make it snug.
You can run the Velcro strap from the original 22. This will give room for your bullets if running pack all the way back... I think Frank may have mentioned this already...
Hope this helps.... You may not like the pack all the way back on the 2.0. Much more rear traction!

Thx for the tip! Frank, sorry if you mentioned it earlier, i didn't catch it. Gonna try it tomorrow night with the stock shorty setup and see how it drives. If I need more rear traction, I'll mess around w the velcro.

Either that or people need to start reading this thread, because all the redundant questions get repeated every 10 pages or less.

Well stopped by the LHS and they had a 2.0 on the shelf. Needless to say I have been working on building it and have the front half done so far. It's my first Losi since the XXX series and I am impressed so far. I did pick up a bottle of 30wt oil like was suggested in this thread but haven't built the shocks yet.

And get yourself some 27.5 as well

You'll want to go 30wt in the front and 27.5wt in the rear... Super dialed for most hard packed tracks!

Have fun with the build man!! Mine was a blast, as always!

Built mine last night/today... Only issue was the rear arms didnt move freely..so I just took them back off n removed the .5 shim on each side.fixed the issue.
I did the shocks with 25 rear oil n 27.5 front oil.ive been racing on a super low bite track.so I'm going to try it this way first.

Ordered a 22 2.0 from Modelflight today, here in Australia, my 1st TLR product. Will probably spend another $400 on tools and electronics to get it going, LOL. This was after procrastinating about a 22T for over 12 months and going through a winter, to no avail, LOL. Then yesterday, just happened to see what TLR was up to and saw this new chassis on RCTech. I need to figure out what electronics to buy, as the car will be run at Knox, here in Melbourne. I saw a guy running a 13.5T RTR at the track last summer and it was pretty slow, though he was stoked with the speed . Not a criticism, just an observation.

What's the difference between a 17.5 set-up and any other set-up?

I've often wondered this myself.

I have a bottle of that as well from before so I will give it a try as well. Right now they are all built with 30 wt as I wanted to try box stock first. I must say they are the smoothest shocks I have EVER felt. Holy cow.

Well since using others setups, should be done so merely as a starting point for your own personal liking and local track(s).... Using a 2.0 'mod' setup, versus a '17.5' setup, would still do you just as much good, as having a 17.5-specific setup.... Especially since you'll be tweaking to your own preference, regardless.

IMO, unless you're a world-class or national level driver, chances are you'll never feel or notice the difference between the two setups (of course with the same motor/gearing setup) - If you were given two identical cars to drive, while up on the driver's stand, it's highly doubtful you'll be able to distinguish a setup that's suited for a 17.5 class, and one for mod... Lol, if you can, then you need to get your butt out of the stock class and come play with the big boys in mod :P lol

Regardless, any of the 22 2.0 mod chassis setups should do you perfectly fine for your 17.5 racing.. And that's with my TW stamp of approval. Haha
