Default TLR 22T 3.0 Stadium Truck Race Kit Thread!

Hi Guys,

I wanted to get a thread going for the 22T 3.0 race kit (TLR03011). I'll get back in here and add some info later, but just don't have the time right now.

And go...!

Thanks!
Frank

Frank,

Is the carbon fiber battery strap on your truck in the video the same part that's used on the 3.0 buggy? I have one on my 3.0 buggy and prefer that over the kit strap with hard mounts. Just thought I would order one if it's the same part. Thanks!

Dope looking new body. New to ST. What are the marked differences in this truck vs the 2.0? $199 is hard to pass up

Pretty much the whole car is new. Only carry-overs are like the front bulkhead, topshaft, and ball diff.

Looks good, it's nice to see a new body. Do you have any weight distribution #'s compared to the 2.0 Frank? Ready to race #'s would be good. I think this version will be good for medium-high bite, but for the old school dirt track I race on in the summer I'll wait and see.

If this is anything like the 3.0 buggy I just may have to sell my T5M!

I know some may complain about the lack of an included laydown transmission in the kit but I think TLR did the right thing by having the chassis pre-drilled and laydown ready so you can add a laydown later if necessary. The kit options and configuration look great to me. I'm happy to pay more $ for something of higher quality, and I think TLR offers that.

And yes, the new body looks awesome. The spirit of the original is still in there, but the look is fresh and edgy. I like how the back of the cab resembles the shape of the 3.0 buggy cab.

It is the same as the 3.0

I think the 3.0 is a LARGE improvement, I'd definitely recommend it.
