And by the way, where in Southern Oregon are you racing that has a loamy surface?! I'm assuming you must be racing at Klamath Falls? The only other track around here is PBR and it's like racing on a sheet of glass.
Yep, K Falls. I was one of the original members back in 1987. Guess the outdoor track has been south of town for quite a while but they found property back in the city so once in door season ends they will be moving the outdoor track. I got a box from Panther Tires today with two pairs of Panther step pins that look identical to the old Losi ones.

Wow. Talk about getting bit by the bug.... The kits not coming till Wednesday and I already dropped a grand on extra goodies! Haha. A lot of it was cheap electronics so when I take all the guts of my sct I can still keep it running for my son but at least half of it was all for the 22t! Yayyyy. I feel just like I did 20 years ago when I had my RC10T almost built.

Truck was dialed last night!! was running super smooth and turns way better than my 1.0 did. The new front geometry and rear arms help a lot!! Thanks to tlr for their hard work and updating the truck. It did push a little so im going to stiffen the rear end up but as a starting point for a mid motor truck i was way impressed!

Is anyone aware of one of those dress up screw kits available that has the blue or red anodized fasteners?

I got it better for racing and by Saturday it was really good. Fixed my rod end bugs I had during racing so dang happy with it now. I still want to play with the shock package in the back a tinge but it is really good where it is right now.

My brother got the parts to upgrade his 1.0 minus chassis. What shock oil should he run? On his mm 1.0 he went with Dakotas Space Coast setup and really liked it. Are the changes enough that a radical rework of the setup is necessary? We are mostly worried about shock packages right now.

Oh no, nothing too special...lets see, where am I at..

front is 32/truck black spring/1.5
rear is 30/low freq white/1.6

As for the chassis itself, it is the same length, just the one you can buy is lightened some and flexes a bit more which can be good.

Also, many havent realized that the rear shocks on the 2.0 are a different length so that is a pretty important change. You need the 50.5mm bodies and the 60.5mm shaft.

We did that change as well. Most of the 2.0 stuff from the buggy like hinge pins were already on it as well as the SCT 2.0 rear shocks. Yes, a bit of flex would be good, but I did a lot of research, and asked Frank what exactly was change before we bought anything. The chassis will be purchased, but we wanted to update the geometry first (we both didnt like the steering how it would kinda just whip the truck around). $60.00 shipped to convert as opposed to getting a whole new kit, and he has a ton of 22 2.0 new spares.

Ryan, which track are you running at?
Also can you provide a setup sheet?

What is the correct length for the steering drag link, using the bell cranks and new 2.0 steering spindles? I'm upgrading my 1.0 with 2.0 parts and want to make sure that I have full steering travel in both directions. If it matters, I'm using a Spektrum 6040 servo.
