Hello everyone,

I attended another event this past weekend right here in the great state of Florida. This time it was round one of the Jconcepts Super Cup series, which would be held at Beachline Raceway in Cocoa, Florida. Beachline has recently been turfed over the existing clay surface which held the ROAR off-road nationals in 2014. I’ve not had too much experience in turf only racing, just a little bit of carpet for one or two events in 2016. So here’s my set-up from this past weekend’s event 22 3.0 Turf LD Beachline Raceway 1/15/17 and a couple of key items to keep in mind when racing turf.

*TLR’s new Front Spindle Set (TLR234074) enabling me to use 2mm trail and raising the spindle height from 2mm’s to 4mm’s
*TLR’s new Complete 2wd Gear Diff (TLR332067) with 30K diff oil (TLR5285)
*I also applied a thin layer of glue to the outside of my JConcepts front swaggers to help with overall steering.

My TLR 22 3.0 with turf LD worked great for me and I hope these little key items help you with your next race.

Hello everyone,

I attended last weekend’s Winter Midwest Championship in Jefferson, Ohio and I worked with Dakotah Phend on his newly acquired TLR 22 SCT 3.0. In practice Dakotah felt the truck was a little too aggressive in some of the areas of the Ohio factory track. First, Dakotah linked in his rear camber link from location D to E on the rear hub. This helped the rear of the truck a lot, but as the track gained grip, this also brought up the steering grip as well. Dakotah and I talked over the options we had. One option was to add a front sway bar; unfortunately, we didn’t have one on hand and so we needed to look into our other options. I looked at the trail and spindle height as Dakotah was in very aggressive locations. We moved from 4mm’s of trail to 2mm’s and we raised the front spindle height 2mm’s from its previous location. This gave him the steering feel he needed and he was the truck to beat all weekend long.  Dakotah took his 22 SCT 3.0 to the top spot in qualifying and to the top spot on the podium.

Hello everyone JR Mitch here. I will be updating this blog weekly with race reports, new products, and helpful tips.

This week I would like to talk about the difference in TLR's TLR338004 and TLR338005 laydown conversion kits.

TLR338004 "Turf/Carpet Laydown"

Features:
       Converts the 22 3.0 into a highly tuned buggy for carpet, Astro turf, and higher traction dirt surfaces
       Specific chassis for high traction with minimum pocketing for reduced flex
       Transmission cases are precision machined from high quality delrin for perfect fit and finish
       Lightweight carbon-fiber battery strap with aluminum mount
       Aluminum idler gear for ultimate reliability
       Milled motor plate and aluminum motor plate to chassis brace included
       A modified 22 3.0 body designed to fit the laydown is pulled from 0.5mm lexan for ultra low weight,        and lowering the center of gravity
       Two TLR Front Wings are included for increased front grip
       A 25g brass plate is also included, and it fits under the battery pack to increase vehicle weight
       All hardware and instructions included; no additional parts or part modifications necessary
       Note – this conversion kit will only fit a “shorty” style LiPo battery pack

TLR338005 "Dirt Laydown"

Features:

      Converts the 22 3.0 into a highly tuned buggy for medium to high grip dirt surfaces.
      “Dirt” Laydown Tranny Included.

      Transmission cases are precision machined from high quality delrin for perfect fit and finish.
       Lightweight carbon-fiber battery strap with aluminum mount.
       Aluminum idle gear for ultimate reliability.
       Milled motor plate and aluminum motor plate to chassis brace included.
       A modified 22 3.0 body designed to fit the laydown is made from 0.7mm polycarbonate, which lowers the center of gravity and is more durable than the ULW bodies.
        A 25g brass plate is also included, and fits under the battery pack to increase vehicle weight.
        All hardware and instructions included; no additional parts or part modifications necessary

Hope this helps and be sure to follow Team Losi Racing's FaceBook page this week/weekend as the team makes the trip to the 2017 CRCRC Midwest Electric Championships in Jeffersonville, OH

TLR 22-4 Low Profile Servo Installation 

Several drivers at the track have been asking how we run a low profile servo in the TLR 22-4…specifically the Spektrum S6240. Check out this video as Ryan Dunford takes you step by step through the easy process…and it only takes a couple of minutes.

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!
