Yes someone explain that please

I find the relationship between front and rear shock inclination makes a huge difference. Changing them equally not so much.
But why would you want the rears even more layed down than how much standard holes allow? Would the end-result not be a very wobbly car? Or would you compensate with a lower roll-center?

That solves the problem on the carpet but what about the spinning issue on clay?

Tibbar any advice from me could make things alot worse Still, this works for me:

Is your rear end sliding out when going in to the turn, or or after you start to accelerate out of it?

If on entry: less washers under the rear inner camberlink ball stud
If on exit: more antisquat (if track is very bumpy to much antisquat will have the opposite effect), more washers under the rear inner camberlink ball stud, and you can try moving rear hubs forward.

From my personal experience, and yours may vary, I found the car to roll more in the corner. When I ran the shocks more upright it wouldn't roll as much and it would lose traction as the car moved through the corner.

Next time you are at the track run the shock upright for a few laps to get the feeling. Then lay it down as far as you can to see how that feels. If you like it laid down then think about drilling that extra hole.

I am on my phone and I can't do an extensive search. So I apologize if this question has been asked before.

Does the LOSA2954 Gear Diff fit in the TLR 22 2.0 Buggy?

Thanks,

Yes, I have one and used it in my 22-2.0. Easy drop in install, just remember to add diff fluid in it before install.

Just to add to toms post..And replace the o-rings with Kyosho P5's and you should be good to go.

After testing different weights..I found 5K to work the best on a med-high bite track..

Hmmmmm, a mid motor only 22 coming out?

"1/20/2015
By Aaron Waldron
LiveRC.com

Around 8:30 AM on Tuesday, 1/20, just days ahead of the Reedy Race of Champions at OCRC in Huntington Beach, CA, Team Losi Racing posted this teaser image to their Facebook not-so-slyly alluding to a new member of the 22 series of 1:10 off-road racing vehicles. The original 22 was first shown off to the public in December 2010, and the following year Dustin Evans won the Reedy Race before continuing on to grab the ROAR National Championship.

It may be perfect coincidence that the date depicted on the teaser, January 22nd, not only shares the name of the vehicle but happens to be the first day of practice for Invitational-class drivers at this year's Reedy Race.

While a replacement for the discontinued National Champion 22T would be the most glaring hole in the current 22 lineup that includes a 4WD buggy, recently updated 2WD short course truck, and the ROAR National Champion 22 2.0 which was released in late 2013, reports from at least one Southern California track suggest that TLR engineers and drivers have been testing a new mid-motor-only 2WD buggy platform.

The release date, as well as upcoming IFMAR Worlds year for 1:10 Off-Road, all make sense given the new rumor. Announcing a new stadium truck the week of the Reedy Race just doesn't add up - will Thursday be the launch of the 22 3.0?

Stay tuned for pictures of the new vehicle on Thursday!"

Default My Guess

Looks to be mid motor. Notice the spike tires on all four corners. Perhaps a mid motor / shaft drive 4WD to replace the belt drive 22-4???

I think that picture was created by LIVERC as the one TLR posted was just black.

Most definitely. I'm really, really hoping for a 22T 2.0 - sure the "timing" may not be adding up but since the teaser is tagged "You Asked For It" I'm putting a lot of stock in a new stadium truck.

My best bet is a 22T too.
