Owner of the company is Chad Parks. Seems like he's just focusing on the T6.1 / T6.2 platform. Members of the facebook group have asked about Losi and he's strayed away from it.

Cool, each truck handles slightly different. Parts wise people will want to keep a similar vehicle on hand.

It wouldn't surprise me if someone worked on one for the 22T platform

I've seen a 22t conversion on this forum. It uses some xxx-nt parts

Alright, so lets add some build pics and thoughts and callouts if you're getting one of these kits so far

1. The receiver box is too small to fit any of the standard size Futaba receivers. Supposedlky Ignite is coming out with an extended box / top cover.
2. The Brake assembly is weird - the screw on the top hole of the brake caliper had to be filed down to not rub the slipper hub.
3. You must keep the side rails from the T6.1, cut them to become the servo mounts and standoffs on the front end of the chassis.
4. You can fit a reciever battery that fits the following dimensions - 85mm x 30mm x 16.5mm
5. Locktite everything
6. Don't forget to buy the (not included) AE clutch shim kit and Losi brass collet for the crankshaft.
7. You would likely want to get a small assortment of M3 screws as my kit seemed to have a few missing, but had the spares so worked out great.
8. You will need to remove quite a bit of material from the rear right suspension arm. Under compression, you'll see that it hits the spur gear. See my photos, I actually need to remove a bit more.
9. The spur gear bearing has a little play on the shaft, causing the gear to wobble a bit. It's possible to get it aligned but you'll need to set the mesh light enough to account for this or it will cause binding. This should realistically just be a bushing and not a bearing, with a tighter tolerance.
10. The parts quality of the kit is really great overall, and as it's a new home built kit it's to be expected that some tweaks are needed.

What you see in the photos below is a few nights of work. I need to get a pipe and manifold still and set up the throttle / brake linkage and I will be done. The cleaner the T6.1 / T6.1 you start from, the easier this will be. You will have the chassis, slipper front plate, spur and pads, battery strap / mounts and the motor plate leftover from your donor kit that you can sell if desired.

Nice review. I built mine and I noticed you didnít mention grinding the right rear suspension arm for spur gear clearance. I had to remove quite a lot of arm material for clearance at full up travel. Also, the receiver box is sized fine for Sanwa/Airtronics receivers. This is designed as a racerís kit IMO.

On the arm grinding, you're right. Should be visible in my photos but I will add to the itemized list. And as far as racer vs. basher etc, plenty of racers use Futaba (7px). There will barely be enough room for a small receiver and the additional wiring in the box.

If anyone is looking for one of the Ignite kits, they're still sold out from Ignite themselves but a member here posted one for sale in the classifieds. Same price as from Ignite directly.

Looks like they are building a conversion kit for the tlr 22t

I haven't posted on here in a while, and I almost completely lost interest in RC altogether (almost sold all my stuff). Thankfully someone got a few guys to run gas truck so I pulled my GT2 out of retirement and raced it and had a ton of fun. I started racing in 08 with a GT and it was great to go back to where it all began for me. Then I saw the Ignite conversion, and, well, I jumped on board! As others have noted it is not a cheap option ($300 Ignite Kit, $340 T6.2 kit - there's the price of a truggy kit already). I am selling off my vintage stuff to focus on this truck. I am still not into this hobby like I once was, but it'll be great to have a "current" truck that I race a few times over the summer to get my nitro fix in. Also, having parts in the hobby shop is going to be great, as trying to buy GT2 spare parts can get really expensive.
