Can anyone tell me if there is a body out there that will fit the TLR 22 2.0? I can’t find a body to save my life.

Team Bluegroove on eBay. They have a replica of the original body and a cool alternate one, both for the 1.0 and 2.0 chassis. Price is good but they don't have window masks.

How are you few carpet guys getting this buggy so low? I have my shock collars all the way up with stock springs and I'm still sitting at 20+mm ride height at full weight.

Currently using pink springs and at 16mm rear ride height by removing the collars and heating some shrinktubing around the shockbodies (for the springs not to rub aganst the threads). Works well, looks hillbilly.

Any ‘sub-shockcollar’ adjustments can be made with these plastic clips you get with cheap rtr cars.

Another alternative is associated low springcups (Associated 91310). These fit well once you ream out the center hole a smidge, to allow for the thicker shaft. However, they are very low and will bind against the arm if you use the innermost shock position on the arm.

That's a clever idea! I like it! I cut some fuel tubing I was going to put inside the shocks under the piston but I ended up ordering a 5.0 AC so I'll just wait to play around with that.

I ended up going with stiffer springs all around on the 2.0 and trying all the different shock positions and it was a lot more fun to drive.
