Frank thanks for taking the time to answer all of our questions, I watched the 45 min video on the TLR site. That pretty much sums it up.

Looks like I will be calling my LHS to get one saved.

So TowerHobbies has $10 off a $20 purchase so I was looking to buy a few things for my 22 to make it a little better. It's just the standard TLR 22. What would you guy suggest buying?

(Tower hobbies doesn't carry TLR parts)

Like is that Jconcepts Monroe battery strap any good?

Honestly, I bought one the week they came out, and haven't used it since.. The Velcro is just 20x easier to use.

Get yourself some tires, wheels, a couple extra wings, or some MIP Thorp hex wrenches (they'll last you a lifetime).. That'll be your best investment!

Agree 100% on the MIP Thorp hex drivers.
The Snap-On tools of RC
Now sold in sets, last ones you will have to buy, if you don't lose em.

Frank or any of the guys in who would know. Should I use the kit set up or transfer my current 1.0 set up to my new kit? I run a track that guys say the dirt is very similar to OCRC.

1.0 setups do not convert

Coming from the 22 SCT I'm gonna pick up a 22 2.0 buggy. Was wondering if you guys could give me some suggestions on a servo and a motor/speedo combo. I usually run a ASE 1315 servo and a full Tekin setup. I'm thinking a 10.5T would be enough....no?

I've really liked the KO RSX one10 servos. Low profile and they feel awesome, just enough speed and super smooth. But they're mad expensive. If you want something cheaper the Futaba BLS 551 is good, still expensive. Cheaper, the Savox 1251 is good but have an extra set of servo gears.

HobbyWing v3.1 is hands down the best ESC I've used, super smooth, super adjustments, super everything.

Motors you can go a lot of different ways depending on what you want. I've always run a 7.5t in my mod buggy but have recently put in a D3.5 13.5 with a 13mm rotor, it's still plenty of motor. I think a 10.5 or 9.5t with little or no boost would be the most ideal after going from super power to smaller power. With the 7.5t I could do a slightly faster hot lap, but the 13.5 I can be super consistent. JR Mitch who is the top TLR driver in Florida and does really well at big races runs a 9.5t, he says it's just the right feel.

To sum it up, 7.5t used to be what every pro ran, but now more guys are going to slightly slower motors and going faster around the track with more ease.
