And the reasoning behind this?
Different compounds..this advice was given to me by Ryan Dunsford and Casper..Frank Root had also told me the same..your buggy won't work well when you you mix compounds..

Anyone,
Just wondering about the shim for the rear axles. Not sure what page it was answered but do I have it correct below:
With shim = more rear traction and vice versa without?
Also if I have a new set of 22 1.0 axles can I use them? would those axles be equivalent to using the shim or not using the shim? I know there is a difference in axles that is why I am curious.

For all you stock 17.5 drivers, I picked up a new motor and ran it for the first time today and TQ'D sportsman 17.5 and sportsman mod! ( yes I ran my 17.5NR in a sportsman mod race) spanked everyone's but! I improved my lap times by 5/10 to 7/10 faster from the previous week running a 17.5 d3.5..

R1 Wurks 17.5 (roar legal)
TQ racing and reflexracing has them check it out!

I'm no sand bagger, but I clicked off a 16.27 fast lap, and experts fastest lap was 16.17 with a b4.2 in the qualifying rounds. I stayed consistent with lap times averaging top 10 16.9- 17.2

My setup was frank roots mm, wht lf spring rear and only the rocket Rc anti squat block.. MIP pucks system too. Esc mounted in front of shorty pack

All blue buggy with white rims TQ

does anyone know the ref. for the gear diff shims that go behind the main gears? Mine broke apart, tried some 0.2mm ones but i think the originals are probably 0.1mm. Or other shims that would work.

On these setups for the shocks, where it says no limiters, shock unscrewed 3turns, etc. What is being unscrewed?

The shock end [eyelet] is unscrewed 'x' turns to lengthen the shock, and promote droop.

Our entire team uses the new inside hole in the rear arm when running RM.

There was a lot of work getting a die made to mold the center link, drawings for machining the swivels, research on what bearings and other hardware needed, and know one knows anything? I understand your position. I guess loose lips sink ships. You guys need a "no cell phone policy" in your research dept. like most of the major automobile mfg. I do work for. I wonder, does TLR ever feel a little funny about coming out with a official TLR part that another company i.e. Exotek has invested time and money in and now are probably not going to sell any more because now the OEM has come out with a very similar part? I could just see the guy posting the picture of TLR's new steering system. Just before he pushed the submit reply button, he told himself, "the Exotek guys are going to crap when they see this". This hobby needs more companies like Exotek, it really helps the hobby advance. Plus TLR gets a bunch of free R&D. Flame away people, flame away!
Here is the info I have, which may get me a talking to later. We are working on something. It is not a "copy" of the Exotek system. Being the manufacturer of the vehicle, we believe it is important to develop a system that was optimized and fit within the existing design of our front end. We also thought it was important for a handling improvement upgrade to be more modestly price, thus the exclusion of many machined parts which unfortunately gives us a longer lead time to market. The servo does not need to be moved back, which is a HUGE benefit for all consumers, especially those running MM.

I do NOT have a date. We've had to update/add some parts for proper performance which has delayed the release.

I do NOT have a price. By adding some parts, the pricing WILL change.

I do not have any more info I can add, other than testing has been very positive. The improvement in handling through a reduction in ackermann has been mostly beneficial in MM configuration.

We do not have plans to release pairs.

If you are running on Astro or Carpet, the results are very positive. Less suspension bind under acceleration. I know the UK team are very fond of them.

It is always the left side of the car, whether the driver's or passengers' .

In all seriousness, just like a real car has only 1 left front for example, same for R/C. All from the perspective of the driver.

^and THAT is exactly why I will always be a Losi/TLR customer.

Not any other mfr. takes the time, like TLR does, to respond to the customers inquiries... No matter how many times something has been mentioned before, or how technical or even political a question can be... Boom, they're always here to help.

Thanks Frank, Ryan, Mike, Dakotah, Doug, and the rest of the guys that are regulars here on the forums, from TLR.

You're the best. Period.

Frank,

Will you guys be releasing a HDS Spur lower than 76T anytime soon? Something down to the 70T range for us stock racers?

I recently switched over to Losi for my 4wd and 2wd sct.

I like the trucks so much that I went ahead and bought a 2wd Losi 22 v2 buggy too.

What/where are the best starting setups for rear and mid-motor builds?

Thanks.

I like Franks RM setup. I dont like any of the MM ones, but that is probably just because my track is better for RM

76T is the smallest we can go with the HDS design. We still offer the 70T using the standard slipper pads for stock racers. This is why the 22 2.0 comes with 2 different pairs of slipper pads.

Welcome to the 22 2.0!

I'd start with the setups below:

Rear - http://www.tlracing.com/ProdInfo/Fil...Root_Setup.pdf

Mid - http://www.tlracing.com/ProdInfo/Fil..._Mid_Motor.pdf

Here would be a good starting point for MM. From what I hear people really like this setup.
http://www.tlracing.com/ProdInfo/Fil...Reedy_Race.pdf

I personally don't have a RM setup sheet as I don't run it very often, pretty much MM all the time. This is what I hear people running when they are in RM.
