Hey, could I put a 20t brushed motor in a 22 buggy? I have some rtr electronics including 20t brushed motor from a Kyosho ultima sc that I'm thinking I could use in a buggy until I get better electronics....the electronics are solar d770 servo, fm radio, and brushed ESC/motor. They all work fine in my sc and I actually keep up with people but wondering if they would work in a buggy?

Also my concern is idk where I would gear it....in my sc its geared 81/17...I recently got a new SCT and 17.5 in it but its geared 78/26...any suggestions on gearing? I would be running this buggy in novice for awhile...do you guys think this is a plausible idea?(until I have enough $ to get better electronics...).

I just looked at the pictures online of the kyosho rtr electronics. I think they will "fit" until you can sell your truck and upgrade them. My only concern was the esc, but it looks pretty small. For gearing.... I am not sure. I would guess 20/78

Yea the ESC isn't too big...I just looked online at the buggy and its interesting how the mount the ESC above the batt and the receiver in front...the chassis is really narrow too. Can't wait to drive one

anyone try the gear diff on the 2.0? I made some adjustments to the diff during the race weekend and got my buggy all out of wack. Now I have to rebuild and start over cause the car wont rotate with out stepping out even with fresh tires on a indoor traction track .

Yes, I had some serious issues getting the ball diff right, so after a few attempts I just put a gear diff I had from the AE B4 platform, drops right in.

Running on high grip carpet, happier with the gear diff. Oh, mid motor config BTW

I run a ball in my 2.0 and a gear in my sons 2.0. The gear diff work very well and less up keep. I use 3k diff oil in my sons 2.0. On my scb I use 10k diff. I would not go higher than 7k in the 2.0. Use a team associated diff seal it fits prity good but you will have to trim around the outside edge. Also use hpi #5 orings on the out drives to prevent any leaks. Crap double check the orings. I can't remember if they are p5 or p3 orings.

P5

Tsr and kyosho p5 o-rings also work.

I do like the ASS gear diff better, doesn't bind as much. 3k Ass diff feels like a 1k tlr gear diff even after considerable amount of "breaking in". The ass unit doesn't leak from where the plastic meats the metal outdrives either.

But haven't tried the ass unit in my 22 as the diameter difference is quite big. Does the gearbox still spin freely with the ass diff?

Does anyone know if Pro line is coming out with a new body for the 22 2.0? Getting ready to buy a new kit but I don't like the Losing or J Concepts body.

TLR offers the stock body and the cab forward body for the vehicle, JConcepts is also releasing a new body for the vehicle. I have not heard of a new body from Proline at this time for the 22.

So I was told that some of the TLR drivers (at least in the southeast) are cutting out some of the ribbing/supports on the rear A-arms to allow more flex which equals more rear traction on outdoor/low traction tracks. Anyone have any experience with this or seen it?

might not be the correct thread, but I race the 22 mostly indoors, does anyone use traction compound? or some type of tire dressing for more traction? I been using the Red High Traction juice from VP Pro but does not really work well for me, a guy at the track been using I think auto carb cleaner to soften the tires?? Not really sure just looking for something to maybe soften tires a bit more for traction....thanks
