22-4 Shorty Pack Chassis Conversion

Hey Guys,

We've just started shipping TLR338002 which is the 22-4 Shorty Pack Conversion chassis.  We've had a few people ask, "What's that little black part for?"  I just wanted to help clear the air and give the detailed info on why we made it.

The right side battery strap on the 22-4 actually works as  the body mount as well, to hold the body up on the right side.  Since the right side battery strap is not used when running the shorty conversion chassis, we designed and made a tube that slides over the body post that basically acts as the body mount portion of the right side battery strap to support the right rear of the body.  See the image below.  Just slide the body clip through the lower hole as normal to hold the battery strap, and it will hold the body mount in place just the same.

I hope that makes it clear why this part in included, and now it can be installed without issue!

Race On!

22-4 Shorty Chassis Conversion Kit

 As the TLR Race Team continues to push the envelope of performance for the 22-4, they have found the weight distribution and overall balance of the 22-4 to be much better when running a “shorty” LiPo on the left side of the chassis and mounting the ESC on the right. This moves the weight a little more forward overall, improves the corner weight balance, and reduces the total weight by 75-100g (depending on the battery pack used). This new configuration is used on most all TLR 22-4 setups since mid-2014 including Ryan Maifield’s 2015 Reedy Race Champion setup. Designed as a direct replacement, no other parts are needed to convert to your 22-4!

Key Features

  • Chassis is designed to fit a “shorty LiPo” without any modification to the chassis or mud guard
  • Aluminum battery stop included allows for shorty pack to be mounted in the front or rear position
  • Additional milling to chassis lowers the total weight by 18-20g
  • An open pocket under the motor has proven to lower motor temperatures approximately 20-30 degrees Fahrenheit
  • CNC Machined from 2.5mm thick 7075-T6 Aluminum
  • Directly fits onto the 22-4 without the need for any other parts or modifications

3-Hole Pistons for the 22 Vehicles

Hello Racers!

TLR is happy to announce the release of 3-Hole 12mm Machined Pistons!  These pistons are offered in packs of 4, and with the hole diameters of 1.3mm and 1.4mm.  The TLR race team has had great success running the prototypes of these pistons on their 22 2.0 and 22-4 buggies and have dabbled with them on their 22T 2.0 and 22SCT 2.0's also.  Several key setups benefit from the reduced pack and quicker movement of the 3-Hole pistons, especially on tracks that are a little bumpier.  See some of the key setup links below.

The part numbers are TLR233017 for the 3x 1.3mm pistons, and the link to the TLR Site is here: 

The part numbers are TLR233018 for the 3x 1.4mm pistons, and the link to the TLR Site is here:

Racer Tip - The popular 22-4 setups have all included the Split (2x1.4mm, 1x1.3mm) rear piston setup.  With the new 3x1.3mm pistons, there is now an easier way to get to this setup.  Just take a 3x1.3mm piston and drill out the two holes with a 1.4mm drill bit, and you're done.  A lot less work and now no need for a 1.3mm drill bit either.  Check out those setups below.

We hope you enjoy these pistons as much as the team has! :)

Race On!

22-4 Castor Block Ball Stud Spacers

Hello Racers,

We have just announced the 22-4 Castor Block Ball Stud Spacers.  These help to fine tune the front roll center on the 22-4, but they do not interfere with the spindles like the regular ball stud spacers will.

The part number is TLR236005, and the link to the TLR Site is here:
