Rear arms added a new inner hole. I thought the front arms have the same holes as in they did not move.

The front arms deleted a hole (outer, correct?). The rear arms added a hole (inner).

I believe that is correct. The reason was, no one ever used the outer hole. I guess no one told Ryan that the outside hole was never used

Yep. Sorry. I forgot about that.

Guys, on the front 22 2.0 a-arms, the outer hole was eliminated (no longer an option) leaving only the middle & inner hole to use on the 2.0 arms. (Like the other guys said, the 2.0 front arms was also moved forward for shock clearance when used with the updated 2.0 slider rack)

For clarification the 22 1.0 front a-arms has all 3 of outer, middle, & inner holes. (The 2.0 front arm only has two, which are middle, inner holes)

So what we know so far - short chassis of unknown length, 1.0 a-arms, +35g brass front pivot mount, we don't know what springs or what's inside the shocks yet, new hole drilled in back tower, a "mock square" pack weight and distribution wise, Silencer body that appears to have a rear wing design, shorty servo... that's not all that bad.

Casper - Dunford - Root - anyone that knows - are you guys running an aluminum idler gear between the top idler and diff gear? I noticed Kyosho promotes that for the smoothest transmission so I was curious if you guys do that too.

Kyosho promotes overly priced cars

Dunford played with this a little recently and was using an alum idler against the diff and it freed up the tranny a little. This helps stay away from metal to metal contact as well.

Seems to be working well. not really needed for strength in the buggy but seems to have freed up the tranny slightly.

Cool, thanks. I'll give one a try too then. I know it's not for strength.

So what does TLR do in the current situation, if maifield prefers the feel and shock location of the 1.0 arm but as Frank stated they are not making them anymore? This is totally just a want to know question, I don't drive a 22 but I do enjoy seeing truely modified cars. Like the latest sct setup, uses parts from two other cars, that's cool to see.

Well..The 22 has had a lot of front end geometry changes. And in the past, "maybe" the hole was not used, but may again become wanted with the current changes the drivers like. My guess? Tlr 22 3.0. comes with bell cranks, revised 3 hole arms, new spindles, new esc mount (like the 22 sct) and maybe a revised chassis. My guess is, it will be like the 22sct and only come with one configuration. The conversion for MM/RM will be optional. IMO, they have done or will have done enough development to justify a 3.0 kit next year, if they decide to go that route. Right now they are trying to get the sct truck out. So I doubt a 3.0 kit this year.

We also did run 1.0 arms, to use the additional mounting hole outside in the arm. For the 2.0, this hole was eliminated since the shock (spring) and turnbuckle interfered with each other quite bad, as they did some on Ryan's car. Although they don't fit perfectly, we may be bringing some of these back into stock as a tuning option - just know there will be some interference at lock.

Won't the ballcups coming out for the bellcrank steering eliminate some of the interference issues, making it a more viable tuning option?

The bell cranks needed more clearance than the slider rack, which the ball cups were needed for. This will not be enough to clear the shock in the outer hole on the arm as well. You can trust me when I saw we've looked into all of this.
