Yea wildcat it's pretty much to where I want it. My buddy has crazy steering on a b4 and can't even drive his, I had to run less in my b4 to be comfortable. Now my losi is about at that same point now.

Ryan, if your running rear motor, I'm curious what you've done to improve steering... Thanks

For the lot of uses and drivers, yes a 6.5 is too much motor for a 2wd. If you are bashing perhaps, but take care to have the diff and slipper setup correctly and be prepared to do regular maintenance. Perhaps a gear diff.

What's your tire/foam setup for TRCR and the 2.0? Hoping to race there this coming winter a couple of times.

I noticed quite bit of slop in the ballcup to ballstud fit as well.

To eliminate it, I took plastic bag (parts bag from the kit) and put it over the ballstud before installing the ballcup. This eliminated all the slop - ballcup to the ballstud interface is nice and snug.

Shock cap o-ring question. Do the 2.0 rings fit on 1.0 shocks? Basically are the bleeder caps and shock bodies the same as the 1.0, or are the new shock bodies machined for the o-ring?

I'm pretty close to a stock setup now. 30wt front 27.5 wt rear oils.
3 washers under the inner rear ball stud and 1 on the hub. Front has 2 mm washer under the tower and 1 mm on the castor block and 1mm bump steer. Battery all the way forward and the batt tray too. 1 mm camber front and 1.5-2mm rear camber. Slight toe out. Ride height 23.5 and 23.5 . Front tire foam softer than I unto run in he b4. And a punisher body Everything else stock.

Gold barcode v1 in rear with sweep foams, aka red work great too.
Gold barcodes for front or proline scrubs with the tread facing forward, with 3/4 or slightly less of a jc open cell white rear buggy foam. Inside of the foam beveled or corner edges cut off.

Sorry XXXDad but that is an ignorant statement.
Every car out except the 22 has a bell crank system and most have better steering then the 22.

I know you two have a need for selling stuff but trying to discredit a product that has far been proven for years isnt smart business.

Good luck though, as I know some people like the slider but the majority where I race do not and the faster guys I know prefer the bell crank. Thats why most of the TLR cars got sold in favor for the B4.2.

I like my 22's and I make them work for my driving style and since the Exotek racks came out my driving time have improved greatly. No more worring about binding due to dust and grim.
not everyone wants to deal with your opinions. A vast majority of people love the rack to death. I do, and I race outdoors.
you have been trying to sell the exotek system post after post in almost every 22-platform vehicle thread I have followed.

NOW, for you to go and criticize two guys, one of whom builds aluminum racks and housings (and to my understanding, on the side), AND then a guy who is happy and supportive of his product is pure BS.

Yes, the shock cap o-rings are interchangeable between the 1.0 shock bodies and the 2.0 shock bodies.. And yes, the newer 2.0 shock bodies DO have a machined lip for the o-rings to 'seat' into. Just for a finer fitment between the shock cap and shock body, is all

Thanks Weavy, they work, just not as perfectly as intended because of the machining on the new shock body.

On a side note..It's the internet so most of us don't know each other. Because of that people posting their results/opinions of the new car carry little weight. We all have different skill levels and abilities to notice changes...This is just another one of those opinion posts BUT..I just got off the phone with a friend of mine who's at the the track testing his new 2.0. Long story short, the new car IS all that and a bag of chips compared to the original! So for me, all the people posting about how good it is, aren't just full of internet crap.

That is, or could be, true but at the same time you need to know who he's debating with.....
