To charge multiple 2S packs individually I either use separate chargers or a charger capable of charging more than one pack at a time (multiple outputs).

If you're talking about charging a saddle pack (two 1S cells) common to 4wd buggies, here is the adapter I use... http://www.amain.com/ProTek-R-C-2S-S...nector/p244696

Does anyone know if TLR plans to update this kit?

1. I know most of the guys are running the new cab forward body
2. Most guys running MM have a new swing arm steering rack

Not to mention I hear some drivers are mixing and matching parts, which is why i ask.

Thanks in advance for any responses.

there are no plans on a new 22 buggy, the difference between the kit and what people are currently racing are basically 1.0 front arms that they are re releasing, the new steering rack and a brass anti squat plate. So you can mimmick it for around $80 for a steering rack from exoteck and a rocket rc antisquat plate.

Alot of parts have been tried, you might also see some new springs coming out. But other than that everything the pros are racing comes in the box for the most part.

Just built a new 2.0. Question on batteries, I've built it MM and found that only 1 of the 4 shorty lipos I have fit. Specs on the packs all say 96mm long but the one that fits measures 92mm. The rest (which measure 96mm) hit on the top of the front battery brace.

Should I just file it down? 4mm seems quite a lot out. Or just buy batteries I know will fit!?

Here is the setup I run. I find MM much easier to switch between 2wd and 4wd and am more consistent with it too.

The main changes I run between low and medium grip is the rear toe and hub position. I find this enough to bring up the rear traction.

Make sure the front block is turned in the correct position, i have ran many different packs and never had an issue. Some packs have to be almost forced down but once you get past the angle they fit like they should. If you still have issues shoot me a PM.

Hey Jason - you pretty much have to buy the TLR CF body or, as I did, the JC body separate. It's frustrating they don't come with that body but ??? Also you must mostly see team driver as the bellcrank steering isn't available to us mortals until 9/22 or something like that.

You gonna do a build? Message me!

Jason, there isnt anything planned at this time. You are pretty much looking to get a body and a steering rack. The rear camber block is nice but you can do the same thing with lead, its just not as eloquent, lol.

I'm talking about multiple 2S packs. Why not charge them in series, if you have a charger capable of 4S or 6S and the batteries are all the same capacity? Is there some reason not to do that?

Why Not Just use One of These? http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...arehouse_.html
Bumping up the voltage requires alot more power supply output than using the lower voltage and running the amperage up. Paraboard and an iCharger is a great combo.

Thanks for the link. Looks like I'd need bullet to Deans connectors to use that.

Hobbyking also has them if you wanted to consolidate your order.
