Default TLR 22 4.0

What do you guys think? I just watched the release video.

It looks like it includes everything everyone needs in one box. It would be nice if they sold a spec racer type upgrade package for those running stock.

Looks pretty sweet. Awesome that it comes with both stand-up and lay-down trannies. If I hadn't just bought a B6D, I'd spring for it. Agree that it would be nice if they did a simultaneous release of the 4.0 spec racer. Seems odd they'd release the 3.0 SR just three months ahead of releasing a whole new platform.

I just went to AE as well. I'm not quite ready to go with a laydown transmission yet, but I was unwilling to invest more than 1/2 the cost of the kit to convert my 22 3.0 should that day come. I really like the B6d so far, so no regrets.

You get a lot of stuff in this car. The laydown option was very expensive, but it wasn't meant as an actual production replacement, hence the machined parts. Now you get a car that will do standup, dirt laydown, and carpet laydown with everything included. It comes with hard arms, machined shock internals and all of the latest parts that have come out recently.

The items you might see on cars would be the aluminum battery posts, the brass weight up front, and on the C pivot, but beyond that it comes with everything you would most likely need.

You won't need to buy a kit and buy hard arms, a new tower, new chassis, machined shock internals and hard rails.

looks nice.

one thing curious about, for an all in one package, does it not include a gear diff?

It just came down to choosing between ball diff and gear diff, we couldn't include both. We chose ball diff as we think more people would still prefer this option.

Makes sense. The overwhelming majority of people would use a ball diff. Seems silly to include both and have to increase the price for something most wouldn't use. On the flip side, it makes sense to include both the stand-up / lay-down. That seems to be split a lot more evenly, and a lot of people will even use both somewhat interchangeably.

The new buggy looks great! Meets and exceeds my expectations. Thanks to TLR for going above and beyond with the new kit!

Understood, then we would be bitching about the price. Still ordering one for carpet, should be good. Just in time, was almost ready to pull the trigger on a B6. 😉😉😉

I kinda feel bad about just buying an SR... But I guess not as bad as those who bought a 3.0 and recently converted to an SR.

Good value at the price with the upgrades that are included.

Basically same as my 3.0. Already have the new hubs, spindles, rod ends with dirt lay down and the x-factory shock conversion. Running stock so wouldn't run a brick pack. Keeping my 3.0.
