My local hobby shop said they will come in this Monday I'm excited I had a 22t 1.0 that I had new and never got to run it so this is a must for me !!

Punch control is your friend.

I'm going to try the bellcranks & brass arm mount on my 1.0 first...then probably order a new 2.0 kit later and give my son the 1.0 for his first r/c.

I ordered mine from Horizon, I thought that was a direct buy, no?

Looking through the downloaded instructions I have the option of a shorty lipo or standard.
Is the shorty for the mid motor high bight track setup? The track I am going to be running at is sandy loamy, fast and open. Getting ready to order lipos but not sure which ones...

If Horizon made them in house yes, but they don't.

When running the mid-motor setup you'll need to run a shorty pack or saddle packs. If you're running rear motor there's room to run a full-size pack. I've always run rear motor and prefer the added weight of the full-size pack in both my 22T and 22SCT. (However I run a shorty in my 22 buggy.) With a modified motor it helps to "tame" the truck a bit in my opinion. If you are going to run stock or super-stock you may want to consider a shorty pack to lighten the truck up. It's up to you, ultimately. A shorty will be more versatile and lighter. A full-size pack will be heavier and potentially offer more weight-tuning options.

I'm super excited, pre ordering my 22t 2.0 as soon as I get home today. Haven't had a stadium truck since the XXXTMF2. I've been driving the 22sct but I really feel like it doesn't have the agility and quickness my ST had so I can't wait to go back. In regards to the mid motor, is it a major change in driving style being that technically the dimensions of the wheels and geometry of the Suspension stays the same? It seems like it's more of balance and weight dynamics but I'm so used to rear motor since I've been driving it since my RC10T back in the day. I'm afraid to do all that work and buy saddle packs and then wind up changing to rear motor. The track is indoor, tight and pretty decent traction clay, what would mid.motor do dramatically if anything at all. Please all feedback is appreciated. Thanks guys.

Did you ever race gas truck back in the day? That's kinda what driving a mid-motor stadium truck feels like. It's a different feeling for sure and it requires a different driving style. Really, what it all comes down to is personal preference. There's no rule that says you need to run mid-motor on high-bite and rear-motor on low-bite. If you feel more comfortable sticking with rear motor go ahead and do it. The nice thing about the 22 lineup is that you can go back and forth between the two setups without buying any additional parts (except maybe a shorter battery). And keep in mind that you can also run a shorty in rear motor, too. You'll just need some additional foam spacers to keep the battery where you want. I think a lot of guys still run shorties in rear motor mod, I don't just because I like the extra weight.

What it really comes down to is run what feels best. Why not try both and decide for yourself?

Will be running a 10.5 to start out. So on a open loamy sandy track where would you start at.
Mid motor shorty, rear motor shorty or rear motor standard lipo? Being I haven't raced rc in at least 8+ years I am hoping for a easy to handle ST at least until I get the hang of it again.

That's a bit of a loaded question because setup is all a matter of personal preference. But I can tell you what I prefer and where I'd start.

I'd run rear motor with a full-size pack. If the track is loose and loamy you'll want as much rear bite as you can get. You want the weight of the truck to dig into the soft dirt. The added weight of a full-size battery and having the motor closer to the rear axle will help with this.

However, I might recommend that you pick up a shorty pack when you can afford it. It will offer additional tuning by allowing you to both (a) alter the weight of and the weight distribution of the truck and (b) allow you to experiment with a mid-motor setup.

I have a question. Does going to MM give you a truck with more steering and less push in the corners or do you have more steering with a RM truck? I am a person that likes a truck with more steering and less push. I like to drive around corners more then power around them! What do yall think?
