I got a dumb question so don't laugh.

The got the new bell crank system. Am I supposed to use the spindles that come in that kit or use the stock 22 2.0 spindles???
The reason I didn't is cause I thought I read that the spindles was the same but I just saw a spindle from a main hobbies and it said that these was to be used with the bell crank and not the slider??

I'm running the TLR cab forward body. The rear of the body doesn't want to clear the battery on either side. Maybe the body that vr6cj is using has longer sides.

I just finished my build with the -2.5mm chassis last night and running midmotor with the waterfall and waterfall battery strap. Is it normal for a shorty pack to fit extremely tight in there ?

Yea, I always feel like I'm going to break something when I put the battery in.

Wow I was super happy with my Two 22 buggy's with the new -2.5 chassis .
Loved them feeling so smooth turning and planted.
Running MM Mod.>I also used 4* rear pivot because I run outdoor .
Let me tell you, this is the trick to TRACTION outdoors with the right tire combo. I also feel I need to use a more aggressive tire up front because traction is so high and it will start to push I used M3 holesot front and M4 rear. This is for outdoor or loose indoor.

I'm debating getting the shiny pucks or the universal joint driveshaft set. Can anyone tell me what they think are better and why?

What did you guys use to keep the battery from sliding side to side ?

It won't move side to side. It's pretty locked in.

Thanks in advance.



people run whatever motor they like. Timing and gearing arevery subjective. I know a guy that built a dyno to find the optimum "power" and efficiency for his 17.5. I am done giving motor advice. I have seen $30 motors beat $150 motors. When it comes right down to it, people buy their favorite brands of buy cheap. I dont subscribe to the motor of the month crap.

I am looking to give MM another shot in 17.5 stock. I have the bell cranks, but not the -2.5, and I have no plans to buy the new chassis. I run on medium to high grip. I might drill the "0" hole just for tuning purposes, but I have no desire to add more weight to the car. We run clay slicks. I am looking for a "balanced" starting setup. I was thinking maybe Maifields, but without all of the weight. thoughts?

Mine will only move from side to side if I force it to and even then it barely moves. If it's moving that much you could always use foam spacers .
