The 22 2.0 announced and shipped with 5 weeks, not sure about that year you are talking about...

No geometry difference, but you might have the turnbuckle hit the shock a little.

I've got the og 22. My question is if I were to get the new bellcrack system will this help solve the horrible bump steer issue the old kits have? Love the car except for that one fact. I'm still competitive but looking to get just a little more out of it. Thanks

You'll need the 22 2.0 caster blocks as well, and yes, it will help the bump out.

Is the date listed for more bell crank steering kits to come in accurate?

Also could I just buy the ballcups, drag link, and spindles to make a complete working bell crank setup?

Is anyone adding weight to the rear for the MM? I have some small weights (1/4 oz) but the only logical place I could think of to put one is on the rear bumper...I don't really feel like spending 30 bucks on the rear weight that losi sells.

I think they are getting away from the rear weight and going to the front brass suspension holder.

Thumbs up MBtoolmaker35> Rocket RC

The link is in my signature for Rocket RC. You want the Forward Brass rear hinge peace . Your going to spend $30+ but its the best available till TLR comes out with there's.

The date should be accurate, maybe a little earlier. No, you need the posts and bushings which are not available separately.

Email rocket rc through their website and tell them you need the 22 2.0 rear antisquat block. They are very quick and awesome to deal with.
