And yes I'm running a saddle pack side by side which would be the same as a square pack with no adjustments fwd or rear.

And stock slipper spring will work on 13.5t motors. I'm almost at full spring compression of the spring, but it is working.
I agree with you. I've also been running the kit setup on carpet in stock class and I love it just the way it is. I think the only thing I deviated on was ride height. Super impressed with it so far.

I'm talking more of a turning radius than setup. When i'm going slow and try to make a 180 deg turn right or left. The turning radius is just to large and would like to turn sharper.

FYI, I think they made a running change to the 2.0 chassis -- I bent mine and the replacement one I bought has extra milling and is presumably lighter as well --

Frank, if you don't mind saying, which truck platform (stadium or short course?) sells in volume better now? I'm assuming this would affect the decision on which 3.0 would be released next.

From my limited sampling at our local track, 2WD SC is definitely drying out and ST is stronger and growing.

I can't say, or answer either directly. We rarely change the release order though

The kit includes the non-milled chassis for cost savings (to keep the kit at $299.99).

We wanted to offer a LW chassis option, and we don't sell any/many of the stock chassis, so we decided to only offer the LW chassis option as a replacement.

Fair enough. I will say, having owned both, that one of them works much better out of the box than the other, so maybe this is a good thing. I don't think you would disagree.

Even though I'd rather see the other come out first.

TLR231033, same as the original. Both are etched TLR 22T 2.0 on them.

Edit: just saw Frank's response.

Which one do you think is better out of the box? I love to know what people think of stuff like this?

I think the 22T2.0 MM works phenomenally out of the box, while the SCT2.0 I've had a lot of trouble getting it to work semi-decently (MM). Just based on other reviews and comments in both threads, I think the views of others are similar.

That said, I think SCT is rapidly losing popularity while ST is gaining popularity.

The 22SCT 2.0 was great out of the box. The 22T 2.0 was phenomenal out of the box. 22T wins in my opinion. Both were built with the same electronics in rear-motor config with a 7.5-turn motor.

Been racing since 1986 and of all the kits I've owned the 22T 2.0 is that absolute best out-of-box. Fellow racers agree and the only changes made are the rear shock oil to 27.5, and the rear brass pivot. This includes indoor/outdoor any track surface the stock box setup works all around.

After that it just a matter of choosing the right tyres.

Default Weight Bias

Frank,

In the 22 3.0 video you mentioned the preferred frt/rear weight bios was 36/64%. What is it for the 22T 2.0?
