Lol. So I run the larger (HD) size turnbuckles on my car now. But I already purchased new smaller ones so that they would fit the new ball cup. If this is true, oh well a small waste of money.

Guys, can I get a quick suggestion for gearing. It's on a smaller/tight outdoor track and just need a general good starting point.

The 22 2.0 is running mid motor right now,

Gearing start points for a
17.5t d3.5 trinity
6.5t tekin gen 2

Both running on the tekin rs pro.

With the 17.5 I was thinking of just running the slipper eliminator, but need suggestions as I am fairly new with setups

Oh, I saw this coming. Seeing how the bell cranks come stock on the sct. And, it uses 3.5mm turnbuckles. Its ok, heres what you wanna do. Buy the lunsford heavy duty turnbuckle kit. Then you can run lunsford ball caps. Which have about half the slop of the stockers. If you don't believe me do a side by side test.

That is my complaint with the Lunsford ball ends, too tight, not enough slop. They bind up the suspension.

Looks like Lunsford sells SuperDuty rods needed in pairs....
LNS35050 - 3.5 x 50mm Super Duty Tie Rods - $14.95. Not quite half the price of the full TLR set and it looks like out of stock right now.


I bought the TLR HD Ti set for my 22 so that both my 22 and 22-4 had the same HD ball cups. Fewer different parts to keep track of in the spare parts box was the primary reason. It had nothing to do with the performance of the original tie-rods.

My 22 2.0 turnbuckles are the same as my 1.0 was...Are you saying they should be bigger?

Same here, 3mm turnbuckles with kit. It makes it an expensive conversion if we need to get the TI turnbuckles aswell! If as Frank says the 3.5mm should have been with the 2.0 kit maybe TLR would be kind enough to supply us with the TI turnbuckles for free or just include the 3mm cups with the kits?

22 2.0's never came with 3.5mm tie rods.

As stated above, I bought them for the car so they would match the HD's that came with the 22-4.

thats disappointing....it's been marketed as the bell cranks have everything you will need out of the box.

Looking at a few photos, you may not need the offset ball cups on the buggy. It could be a difference between clearance in the truck and the buggy, the truck needing the offset cups.

Pretty minor issue. If the 22-4 ones will work, I have them kicking around for someone if you need them.

When did that change? I have bought 2, 22 2.0's new and neither came with 3.5mm turnbuckles.

I wouldnt get to excited guys. We all know TLR will make it right before it ships.
It could have been a typo by Frank also. Im sure he will make a official statement on here by tomorrow seeing as they frequent the board for product support.
