I have a new 22 2.0 that I didn't build. It has the gear different with I believe 5k oil in it. When I give it throttle it pulls to the right. I run mostly on carpet. Do I need to toss the ball different in? What would be making it pull to the right. All bearings are good no drag that I have found.

I also just noticed the slipper is slipping more than it should so I'm going to work on that.

Have you measured all shock lengths? That would be the next thing to check.

I noticed the price cut on 22 2.0 and some stores dont sell them anymore. Is this the classic sign of a successor in the making?

Thanks Frank I'll check that. Is the gear diff better to run on carpet or the ball diff? Seems like if the rear tires are breaking traction under hard acceleration that one tire is unloading more than the other causing it to pull one way or the other?

I haven't raced 2wd in a long time. I have run 1/8 and 4wd sct for the most part.

The guys usually run a gear diff on astro or carpet.

Thanks Frank, my buggy had the same symptoms and sure enough one shock was longer than the other three.

Check Rear Hub For Spacer between bearings, My kids buggy was doing the same thing and it was missing that spacer in one hub. Took a while to find because when you remove rear wheel it spins free.

Can't speak to other brands and their fit, but Losi does make this part themselves: http://www.amainhobbies.com/rc-cars-...233018/p445402

The AE pistons will fit the Losi shock shaft. I had a spare B5 shock shaft laying around, so I test fit a Losi piston on it and it fits just like the AE piston does.

Running my 22 2.0 tonight on a semi-tight indoor clay track.

Using a Trinity D3.5 17.5 in the "mod" buggy class.

What is a good general starting point for pinion size? I'm using the stock spur.

I would start at 32 or 33 and check temps every minute or so until you are sure you aren't going to overheat.
