WoW glad to see people from Sparks on here, I started the end of last year running my TLR Ten SCTE4 and just got a 22 2.0 on trade was thinking of running it up there. I raced dirt oval sprint cars and late models for years and making the switch to this is a challenge. I dont want to run the buggy in full out mod class yet and a Stock class seems a wast to me so where would be a good place to start motor wise? Also glad to see there are people willing to help out at Sparks, every time my brother and myself have been there we had a blast and meet a lot of good people, and Glenn has always been friendly and does a great job up there puts on a good race program.

Does anybody else have the problem with the 22 2.0's weather mid or rear motor of the buggy getting inconsistent during the race. Buggy starts out good and then just seems like the setup goes to hell for a little while and then it kinda kicks back in and it's good again.

Default Ball Diff / Spur Gear

Hi,

I just purchased a used TLR 22 2.0 Buggy and I had a quick question about the ball diff/spur gear. It appears to be different than my TLR 22 SCT so I am wondering if something is wrong or if it is actually normal.

When I turn the right rear wheel on my TLR 22 SCT the left rear wheel spins in the opposite direction. It is smooth and the spur and pinion gears don't move.

When I turn right rear wheel on my TLR 22 2.0 buggy the left rear wheel spins in the same direction and the pinion and spur gears both turn as well. It is choppy and not smooth like my SCT.

Is something wrong or is that normal?

Thanks,

I took it apart and rebuilt the ball diff bc I thought something was wrong. However, it is still not smooth though it seems to drive fine in the limited space in my living room.

Thumbs up Rebuild

When in doubt take it out. If its a ball dif rebuild it. If its a gear dif.... well up to you. If you only bash or run high bite indoor then the gear dif might work. Ball dif is just better performance.

Thanks I rebuilt the ball diff however that didn't resolve the 'potential issue'. So I am not sure if that is the way the TLR 22 2.0 is supposed to feel.

I guess my question is how is the rear end supposed to react when you turn only the right rear wheel?

Thanks,

That sounds like sauce/tires, or nerves.

Not nerves, as I am a pretty good driver and usually finish top 3 for whatever class I am in. I am going to try and get some more track time in to figure out what is going on. The only reason I had brought it up was because I have had other people tell me the same thing. I am glad that it is not a common problem and will work more on the setup to see what is going on.

Are guys still saucing their tires on a outdoor medium to loose track and if so what seems to be the sauce of choice? Thanks.

Sometimes it is nerves for me. Finishing top 3 doesn't mean you don't have nerves still when racing....

I know my car is a lot harder to drive in the 5th minute when I am on a good run than the 10th minute of a practice run... just sayin'

People don't sauce outdoors. It maybe be how wet the track is/isn't, or tires breaking in/wearing out, or some tires can get hot and squirm more if there is a lot of wheel spin.

I hear you Frank and thanks for the response. I am going to go through the buggy and makes sure that everything is free and am going to try some different tires. I'll get to the bottom of it.

hey guys outside of weight distribution is there any benefit when running mid motor to run the esc up close on the waterfall and push the battery forward rather than placing the esc behind the servo and running the battery back?
