Sorry if I have a question that had already been answered... could not find anything regarding the protective sheet, only the same chassis lenght 22 vs. 22 2.0.

I've just picked up a 22 2.0 and would like to get a protective sheet for the chassis.
Does the "normal" 22 (TLR331000) protective sheet also fit the 22 2.0 chassis?

Thanks!

Yes, I used the ones that I had from my 22 1.0 and they worked on my 2.0 with no issues.

Yes, they have actually been updated to have the 22 2.0 logo on them now

bravo, we have a thinker on here. I don't know how big the benefit would be. But, I do the same in RM. Also, for RM you should look at motor weight. I run killshots because their 18 grams lighter than almost all of the other motors. and it helps reduce the pendulum effect. As far as MM. I think tlr is working on a new MM rear end seeing how I know of some TLR workers are selling their MM cars

Thanks for the response, I was curious couldn't find much on here about it, changing to a lighter motor makes a lot of sense too.

There could be a benefit however the 22's motor is positioned well forward of the location of most mid-cars to clear the suspension pivot. That component may be in the way of maximizing the benefit of this adjustment.

New Silencer body - looks pretty good. I have to admit, I almost choked on my lunch when I saw the color scheme (I thought Maifield was running a 22 - lol):

It looks good!

The wheels seem to have a thin beed a la EVO, I guess new wheels are ready to be released as well.

Changed rear tires to Hybrids Blue compound and have way to many on-power traction. Running mostly Frank Root's setup. So I'm going back to 20 degrees kickup because I liked how it felt and maybe try again 2 degrees anti-squat, currently at 1 degree because track is very bumpy. Question about tire and rims, should I glue the tire to the bottom of the rim bead or bead and lip?

Glue down in the trough of the bead. And on the sides of the little valley.

Also... Look into the new evo and proline ⅛ style buggy rims, gluing much easier.

Thanks, only glued the bottom of the trough like BK did in Basildon '93 to see if it was less affected by ruts and holes. I don't think it made a difference but I'll test more next week.

I'll look into those EVO wheels, looks like it will be way easier to glue correctly.
