Thanks.

I don't believe there is minimum dimensions?

Oh I have no idea. I think the Exotek conversion is pretty cool but thought this whole time it was buggy-specific. If I can run it on an ST without anyone making a fuss about it then I need to rethink things a little.

One more quick thing:

Can I buy replacement spoilers for a MM 22T? I found TLR8120 but the picture doesn't show the tab that fits over the rear body posts. To be honest I'm not sure how one would attach the spoiler shown in the photos for 8120.

TLR did not make any replacement spoilers for the 2.0. Just buy the TLR8120 and mount them on the back of the body. The kit spoiler is very weak and gets damaged quickly. This old TLR8120 spoiler last forever. I tore-up my original spoiler the first race day. Replaced it with this one and have been running it for 6 races without any damage.

Thanks for the info!

How do you attach 8120?

Bend about 1/4" from the bottom at a 45 degree angle. Then I drilled 4 holes (2 for each side) and mounted with small screws and nuts. I trimmed the part across the center section to make clearance for the body pins.

I will try and take a picture tonight and post it.

The Jconcepts Gurney spoiler will also mount onto the back deck of the 22T body using screws and plastic nuts, but the body will deteriorate much more quickly than with the stock spoiler because of where the crash loads are focused. Guess that gets you closer to a new body and stock wing, though.

Not sure if you've already seen these tips but they help a LOT: http://losiracing.blogspot.com/2015/...nting-tip.html

Are you guys using the spoiler for rear traction or more to keep the nose up in flight? I don't run a spoiler at all, and it seems to drive OK. Maybe it nosedives a little too much, but the car isn't bad.

Length is 15.25" min, 18" max
Wheelbase is 9" min, 11.5" max

Per section 8.7.2.1 on page 50 of Roar rules.

No idea of where the Exo buggy chassis is?

The EXO22T will be released later this week. 5mm longer than the buggy which makes the truck easier to drive.

Bummer, I should have waited a couple of weeks

Did you use washers between the screw cap and the wing surface?

Did you leave plenty of slack (screw and nut should NOT be cinched down)?

Careful to ream the screw holes as tight as possible?

Ever since I started doing this my 22T MM wings went from lasting about 3 weeks to lasting almost as long as the bodies themselves, while racing twice a week.
