I would like more at the end of our straight where it turns into a sweeper with a double on it. I'm going to try a wing with the wicker cut all the way down first and some front shocks with a little different piston in them if that doesn't make enough of a difference. But I have the screwed in side pod weights plus instead of the orion WTS (which I don't have), I just taped in additional side pod weights where he had his WTS. I may move those forward as well.

If you buy the trackstar, get the 120 xcar speedo and any of the trackstar motors are good also at a really light budget price. Make sure it's a sensored motor and esc!
Did Eric Baskin just say something accurately? Yes sir. Do not buy castle. That's bashing equipment. A savox 1251 would be the only thing I'd personally change. Lol

I looked around for a bit using Google. No luck. Does anyone know the best way to convert losi front hexes to the 12mm hex? I just spent a ton on front tires for my rb6 and made the switch to losi. Any help is greatly appreciated. Please attach a link if possible. Thank you.

I could use some ideas. My ball cups in the front tend to pop off during races. I can be fairly hard on the buggy but my other R/C vehicles do not have this problem. I have experienced the problem on technical grass and carpet tracks.

first runs with the TLR bell cranks and its awesome, high speed steering feels about the same but low speed steering and response is finally there. Several years ago coming from the B4 the 22 had a Cadillac feel but its perfect now! congrats to everyone who had a hand in this project_

I have heard that RCshox might be working on a 12mm front hex conversion for the 22

I honestly dont think it is possible and maintain the same track width. Why? Well the AE/Kyosho front wheel off set is WAY different. TLR went with an outwards con-caved wheel. And the AE 12mm wheel is con-caved in. So we are not talking about 1-2mm. It will be WAYYYYYYY off.

Gotcha. Well I'm bummed about having to get rid off all the new tires I just bought but seems it'll be better than throwing my losi out of whack. Thanks for your reply.

What is the advantage in running the 22 1.0 front arms over the 2.0 front arms?
