Just picked up a 22t 2.0. I used to race the xxx-t Matt Francis edition back in the day. Pretty stoked to get another stadium truck.

I've been racing for a few years and always had 4wd buggy or 2wd buggy(currently have a 22 4 2.0). My question is I am trying to decide between a 22 3.0 or a 22t 2.0. What differences are the between 2wd buggy and stadium truck? I have no experience with trucks , so are they easier or harder to drive, do jump and land better..etc. thanks for any info

They're totally different. You just have to get a feel for it. You race, so you'll figure it out.

You and I have pretty similar stories. Back when I was young and vibrant I had an XX-T and then a XXX-T MF. When I got back into RC it only seemed natural to go 22T.

What angle is the tlr334015 hrc front pivot? I bought it thinking it was 30 degrees, but when I got it and compared it to a plastic 30 degree one they definitely aren't the same. Looks like it is 25 degrees to me, anybody know for sure? If it's not 30, is there a 30 degree hrc front pivot?

It is 25 degrees. I do not believe there is a 30 degree hrc pivot.

The HRC pivot is 25 deg, and there is no 30 deg HRC option (won't fit).

Darn, that's not what I wanted to hear. Thank you for answering my question though. I like my current set-up but need to find a couple more tenths if I want to stay ahead of the rest of the pack so I'll try the regular 25 degree first and then the HRC one.

I would go with a 22 3.0 or wait. Just because i feel like a 22T 3.0 is coming in the near future. That being said, i have a 22T and its great. But I have more fun and can compete better with the buggy. My Stadium truck feels less sensitive than my 22 3.0, so to some that could mean its easier to drive or harder to drive just depends on you.

ok thanks for that, I was also considering getting a truck for my nine year old daughter, she likes 2wd buggy but struggles at times with it, so wondering if a stadium truck would be better. thanks

I think the best vehicle for a young driver is a 2wd short course. It'll teach them throttle control and they are a heck of a lot more durable than stadium trucks.

Plus they have a lot higher chance of rolling back over onto their wheels instead of ending up dead-bug in the middle of the track after a wreck.

What setup are you using that makes your truck unresponsive, I have mine setup to where it is just as responsive, if not more then my 22 3.0 laydown car. Very little changes from stock other then the specific truck springs TLR has released.
