I get that. TLR plastic seems to wear out, I replaced the bellcrank arms and that helped a fair bit. HD ballcups seem to get slop also. Not much you can do about the spindles I don't think.

TLR LF & Kyosho BB buggy springs are nearly exact same length front & rear as I have full sets of both those here to measure, and if they vary in length it's by half a mm (with the TLR being a touch longer when physical coil count is the same.)

However I have found the Spring lbs rating in the Kyosho BB are a touch higher (a touch slightly heavier) than the TLR LF when comparing the exact same coil count side by side.

Question for all the 22t 2.0 drivers. Thinking of jumping in the stadium truck class this winter after trying the 2.0 sct last winter. The short course drove pretty good but not the class for me. So my question is do the stadium trucks drive similar to short course? Thx in advance

stadium trucks are like a happy medium between buggy and short course. they dont parachute as badly off of jumps and they handle better due to lower cg. i personally prefer them to sc trucks by far

I started out driving sc a few years ago, but tried out the 22t 2.0 when it came out and I was hooked. So much more fun than a short course and more forgiving than a buggy. I'm really hoping stadium truck will pick up this winter!

Here in Southern Oregon SC has been on a major decline while stadium has been a increase.
In fact last two races has resulted in zero SC even racing while stadium has had two full classes of mod.
Too bad our outdoor season is about done because I am really liking my 22T 2.0.

I have been running a mod 22SCT 2.0, a Slash (Spec Class), and my 22T in stock truck class. If push came to shove and I had to pick one to go forward with it would be, hands down, the stadium truck.

I've never raced buggy so I'm lacking that perspective but the stadium truck is much more precise than a short course. Obviously in my situation driving experience is going to differ just based on each trucks respective power plants but even considering that, I find the ST easier to drive.

Both are fun but the ST wins on smile-factor.
