Exclamation Gas truck tlr22t Nitro conversion!

I have a brand new O.S. Cr-v engine but lost interest in 1/10 gas truck.I hear rumors of conversions in the works ie tlr22 and rt6.Would that be possible in mid motor set ups What are the pros and cons ?I don't want to wait for a possible new gas burner to be released

Sooo... I am excited about this new possible 22T conversion as well. Is your OS a SG or standard shaft? Most new truck will most likely be designed for SG shaft clutchs like the AE GT2. But there is adapters

Not sure how the conversions will work. As both the GT2 and AD2 have 3 gear tranny and the spur is on the right side of the car. These MM car are 4 gear and have the spur on the left.. So I think it should work as far as engine rotation transferred to wheel rotation.. I would keep your CVR for the carb alone...

I broke it in on a xxx-nt and needed parts.When I went to my LHS they seemed awfully disinterested as it wasn't a 1/8 nitro and the class was all but dead.Ive always watched vids of gas truck racing and thought it looked like a fun class to watch and race.My O.S. Box says Max 18cv-rx Blue 11j Abc roto carb?I see amain now has a 22t for 189$ just wondering if that means a 2.0 is coming?The jcon race here in Spring is slated for a gas truck classI think a current kit with a conversion is the only way to go!

Gas truck is a .12 class as far as racing goes. .18 is just too much power..Idk, my GT2 is solid... And my current AD2 is gonna be a beast. That build should be done in another week.

Thanks! The AD2 is being built as a loaner car for my buddies to drive this year. The throttle servo is an XQ, i think its an orion knock off that can handle lipo and has enough speed and torque to do the job. I have Savox all round in my GT2. These are no shelf queens, i bought enough spares on ebay to keep me running for a long time! Plus, you can still buy spares for AD2 and use T4.2 front end all some other parts if you want for the GT2...

I hope that 1/10th nitro stadium truck comes back some day. I'm not to much into the buggy and truggy racing. I think that losi could easily build a nitro version of the 22T and associated could make a RC10GT3 pretty easy as well. I'll sit back and wait. Might not have a choice but to get a 1/8th buggy or truggy if I want to race.

We had six 1/10 nitro stadium trucks at last club race. There is still an interest. Iturbo rumor has it chad parks is working on a t4.2 conversion for the jcon race in Omaha. If it goes well making a 22t conversion also.
