If you install the spacers on the bottom of the caster block that would lower the axle and have the same effect as lengthening the shock. More rear grip and less steering on corner exit.

I had to read this twice and correct my response

spindles go around the caster block and not inside it like it did in older gen buggies.

So spacers on top is higher axle height and spacers on bottom is lower axle height

I think it depends on how long your races are. I see some setups have added weight with shorty packs. The extra weight of the saddle or new square packs seem to lessen the need for adding as much additional weight. You may need to add some weight for traction no matter what. I have no additional weight besides the rocket racing front brass pivot for the rear arms and I run a shorty pack. She is a 3800 mah pack and charge her between every race. I may go with SMC's new square pack soon due to my shorty being almost three years old.

Hey guys,
I'm completely new to buggies. I have the TLR 22sct so figured it'd be best to look at getting a 22 buggy since some parts would be interchangeable. So I'm looking for a roller and I'm getting price ranges all over the place. What is a reasonable price to pick up a 2.0 roller for? also a 1.0 roller?

Is a 2.0 any better than a 1.0 with the 2.0 geometric upgrades?

2.0 is definitely better than the 1.0, I'd look to pick up one of those.

Hi guys,
I have a couple of 22 v1.0's. Would anybody be willing to list, by order of importance/effectiveness the main 2.0 updates to be made? ie. front spindles/blocks, rack, rear arms, etc..

I presumed that 2.0 was a better buggy but is there any differences between a 2.0 and a 1.0 w/ 2.0 geomotetric updated.

Just upgrade the suspension geometry parts if you don't want to buy new cars.

I wouldn't just change a few parts here or there.

No difference in the suspension geometry once you upgrade a 22 1 to a 22 2.0. The difference is in the 2.0 shock shafts hinge pins pistons X rings and other little things that make it a great car. If you hold the lower shock link the new shocks will compres down from their own weight they are that smoth. I thought that they would leak but not a drop.

lol sorry Frank, I need to be more specific with my questions.

What I meant was can you tell a difference in drive-ability on the track between the 2.0 and the 1.0 w/ 2.0 geo upgrades.

If you buy the caster blocks, spindles, rear arms, rack, and springs, then not too much. You'll just have a little more shock maintenance, diff maintenance, and it won't be as easy to work on.
