Guy I race with in 13.5 truck spent well over $700.00 to get his truck to work. Insane. I found a near perfect 22T on here for $100.00, add $25.00 for diff rebuild kit and it's mint.

The class kind of died here. Find a good used one. They will be making parts for the foreseeable future. The bell cranks and most 22 2.0 pieces work on it, and make it very competitive. I love mine in MM.

Sorry. Found them. Are these the same as the red losi ones? Or are these better?Thanks
Not too sure about the Losi..I just used the Kyosho's.

Looks like they are back ordered..but at least you have a part number to look around

Kyosho P5

It rained a couple days ago and we thought our outdoor track would be dry by now. Went outside and see puddles so my buddies decide to do some drag racing with their short courses and 1/8 buggies. I decided to watch because I only brought my Losi 22 with 17.5T. I got bored watching them argue with eachother who was faster or who cheated, so I decided to play with my buggy in the dirt, wherever there is no water. My buddies were still arguing so I decided to mess around and put my buggy into the mix. As they were calling off 3-2-1, I went and I was surprised how much I kept up. I didn't understand how because my buggy has a 17.5t motor and they were running crazy setups. They decided to end it because all it took was a 2wd buggy to keep up with them both. Could anyone explain why I kept up? I have the Trinity D3.5 17.5t motor with team Orion R10 Esc.

Now I'm curious with a mod motor I ordered 8.5T.

I have an issue I need some advice on...

This may sound dumb but...the ball cups are pretty tight on the turn buckles and when I try to adjust them on the buggy they pop off the balls. The buggy is brand new and I'm just trying to get close to a setup.

Thanks

Use a bunch of beeswax on them when you install (Lunsford has good stuff). No grease or oil. Get the ballcup tool too. You'll be good then.

Default ESC on top

Frank and others,

I run Tekin RS2 esc wich are light. Should I add weight just under my ESC to match the orion or other heavier ESCs?

Thanks in advance!

I've got 4, 22-4, 22 1.9 rm, 22 2.0 mm and 22 sct 2.0. I had 5 but I sold my 22sct 1.9 yesterday. It's an awesome platform that continues to evolve. Now, if only we had a local 10th scale track to run them on. Ever since Mike's Hobby Shop closed 2 months ago, we only have Indy RC. Indy is a great 8th scale facility but 10th scale really struggles on their track. I ran 2 packs with my 22sct 2.0 yesterday. While I was able to make 90% of the jumps, It makes me nervous every time that I threw it at a huge gap jump. I'm still hopefull that Mike builds a new facility with the money that he received from his old property, but the wait is killing me. You would think that the Dallas Ft Worth metroplex, as huge as it is, would have more than one track.
Sorry for the long post.

Cool thanks. Other than Lunsford who else might make something that will work the same? My LHS doesn't carry Lunsford.

They need too! You can get some of the beeswax chapstick almost anywhere. There's a hippy brand in the yellow packaging that works ok. Forgot what it's called at the moment.
