Thanks. I'm guessing they won't work even with shimming?

Frank, any thoughts on the reduced Ackerman you ran on your stock nationals car? I've been thinking about this a LOT, and of all the differences on your car, this seemed to add the most steering to my T2.0, especially mid-corner, and I can't 'splain it.

In simple theoretical terms, less Ackerman should smooth out high-speed steering and more Ackerman should increase low-speed steering.

But... I'm thinking that with the big wide wheels that the stadium truck has, there is less weight transfer to the outside wheel mid-corner (as compared to a buggy), meaning the inside wheel aids in steering quite a bit. With less Ackerman, maybe there is less slip angle on the inside front wheel, allowing the rear slip angles to have higher numbers relative to the front?

Maybe the stock setup has a bit of understeer in it at partial steering angles mid-corner with the stock Ackerman setup, so reducing it balances front and rear a bit? I did notice kit setup had a fair amount of mid-corner understeer.

They will not.

Looking forward to trying one in my indoor (carpet) truck too.

+1, ran on an outdoor track with probably less traction, was very loose and loamy, everyone was running holeshots, carvers, 3d's etc... I should have run RM but decided to mess around with the 3 gear mm for fun. Im not sure if I had better traction compared to 4 gear but it definitely wasn't worse. I was also able to drive the truck much much harder it seemed, could go harder into and out of turns with less spin outs. Also seemed easier to correct if the truck started getting sideways in a turn. In mod class, ill be sticking with the 3 gear from now on.

Avid makes it, its an aluminum topshaft that also uses the more common 5.5mm nut on it. http://www.avidrc.com/product/5/acce...cessories.html

AFAIK, they stopped making those. It's been "Out of stock" for more than a year.

I just bought the MIP aluminum topshaft for 22 series. It very similiar to Avids but MIP's uses a 4mm nut

I just scored a deal here on a 22T mm roller. I went with a reedy 13.5 with a 78 spur & 22p. I am running indoor clay track and the issue is after about 7-10 minutes the motor is getting extremely hot around 160 degrees plus. From the losi website it advises using 22p with 78s. Kind of new to the 2wd world but also the timing on the motor was also maxed out at 4o degrees. Any suggestions

Personally, I don't think ~160 is unreasonable for 7-10 minutes. I push my 13.5 buggy to that temp every round every weekend I race.

If you want to run cooler the first thing to try would be back off the timing 3-5 degrees.

Yeah, +1 I'm always at or slightly above 160 degrees when I'm running 17.5 boosted, and I have a fan attached to my bored out waterfall.

For mid mount the screw passes through the plastic block and screws into the gearbox. For rear mount the screws thread into the plastic block which is a different part. You need to use the plastic block without any degrees marked on it TLR234009. If it has 1,2,2.5 or 3 degrees marked on it the screws will just pass through.

FYI, I just measured my MIP topshaft at 3g and my stock topshaft at 4g.
