I had a productive practice day yesterday and Frank's 17.5T (OCRC) setup on my EXO22T was VERY close to what I needed for a mod 7.5T on dry dirt glue spray (Thornhill). I surprisingly was looking for more on power corner speed and found it better to run slicks on the rear and treaded tires up front. I dropped the kickup to 20, moved the battery forward a pinch in the tray and eventually lowered the ride height to 18mm front/rear and then I was turning lap times on par with my 4WD SC. The truck just glides around the track, I keep expecting it to traction roll, and it will sometimes get on 2 wheels in a couple tight corners, but the extra wide track width of the platform is VERY forgiving... I absolutely LOVE this platform!

As easy as this car is to drive, I'm truly dumbfounded why the class would have ever died off in the first place?

Yes, I'm running Frank's setup. Truck is driving great, no matter the surface. Jumping and landing well, good cornering.

Just bought a used 2.0 truck. The rear arms appear to be from original truck, they only have 2 adjustment holes. Any performance advantage for someone running these vs kit 2.0 rear arms? Maybe they broke and have to put the 1.0 arms on to keep them going...

The 2.0 rear arms have "T2" on them.

Frank, thank you to TLR for taking care of the no sticker issue. Was told I couldn't get them separate, but was asked for my contact info and a copy of my receipt in case some turned up, then today got an email that a new replacement body was shipped. Super impressed, excellent customer service!

Was thinking about building a 22T 2.0 with the 3 gear transmission for our upcoming December-January stadium truck points series. (The track owner is trying to get stadium truck going regularly here.) Of course I am itching for the 3.0, but I doubt it will be out in time. However, I just saw last night that at least 4 guys at our track are building the new Xray XT2. Tough to build a 22T 2.0 and expect to compete with that on a carpet track! What do you guys think? Maybe I build an XT2 for our upcoming points series and flip it once the 22T 3.0 drops?

I was in the same situation, I decided to go with the EXO22T conversion which is probably the equivalent of calling it a 22T 2.5

While others are chasing setup on their XT2, I'm hoping to capitalize on a stable setup with my EXO22T that feels pretty good after just 1 day of practice. I'll know more after this weekend which is the first day our local club will have a dedicated truck class with a pretty good mix of XT2 owners jumping into the class

This is all guessing but I doubt the 22T 3.0 is going to be geared towards carpet/astro type traction like the XT2. That being said, I don't want for much when I go carpet racing with my 22T 2.0.

If I made an educated guess, however, I'd assume a 3.0 would come with transverse battery option, 3 gear transmission, and perhaps the buggy laydown transmission could be made to work in it. That would at least get me basically where I want to be out of the box.

I's funny - I used to be begging for TLR to bring out a 22T 3.0... Then I changed my 22T 2.0 to the 3 gear conversion and modified the stock chassis to run my battery transverse, just in front of the waterfall...

The truck just came "alive" on our indoor clay offroad track... I'm happy with what I have (for now)...

If you want the shorty sideways, that takes some work or the Exotek chassis.
does it matter which tranny setup he uses?? he built with 4 gear & shorty pack wont fit long ways

That's the RM brace modded to work.
