Bladder shocks & Emulsion shocks

Hello everyone,

This week, I would like to share an in Touch with TLR video done by TLR team manager, Kevin Gahan, showing and talking about bladder shocks & emulsion shocks. This past weekend I attended the Roar fuel Nationals and I switched from emulsion to bladder and I saw a much more stable car on the high-speed track at Southside RC Raceway on bladder shocks over emulsion. So, I think it’s always good to keep a set of bladders (TLR243004) in your parts box.

8IGHT-X

Hello everyone,

This week I’m attending the Roar fuel nationals in Lake City, Florida at Southside RC Raceway and I’ve been given the awesome opportunity to race the newly released 8IGHT-X. I’ve taken a few pictures of my car here at the race for everyone to take a look closer at things. Be sure to check out all of the coverage from here at the Roar fuel nationals on TLR’s Facebook and Instagram all weekend.

Throttle return spring

Hello everyone,

This week, I would like to switch things up and move over to the nitro side where I will be for the next couple weeks. One of the cheapest items and one of the best insurance policies for your engine is a throttle return spring (TRS). Horizon Hobby has available through Dynamite (DYN6640) and it is one of the best TRS on the market and can be fitted to most nitro engines. As you can see in the photo below, I’ve replaced the set screw on the ball link on the carb with a short button head screw for this spring to work on my Orion CRFV3 engine.

22S SCT RTR

Hello everyone,

Based on the Team Losi Racing® 22™ race platform, the all-new Losi® 22S SCT RTR has taken the performance and durability of the 22 platform and maximized it to become the ultimate Ready-to-Run performance. The 22 platform is a legend in the radio control racing world and this new Losi version is ready-made for racing while keeping the appeal of backyard bashing. A powerful Dynamite® brushless system provides abundant power that’s completely manageable with the aid of AVC® (Active Vehicle Control®) technology. The get-up-and-go of the 22S is easily handled by the race-inspired suspension of the championship winning 22 race platform. Several Team Losi Racing 22 platform performance parts can upgrade the look, style and performance of the 22S RTR. With user-friendly design concepts, like a bottom loading battery compartment and hard mounted electronics, the user experience is hassle-free allowing the bashing to begin right away.

TLR 22 4.0 front axle

Hello everyone,

This week, I would like to talk about the adjustment that you can do to your front axles on the 22 4.0 and 22 4.0 SR vehicles. Both cars come with adjustable front axles that allow you to make your car wider and narrower, but also along with this it changes the scrub radius (Measurement from the spindle pin to center of the wheel), which changes your overall steering of your car. Narrowing (having both .5mm shims on the inside) makes the car easier to drive off center and widening (having both .5mm shims on the outside) makes the car more aggressive off center and it is more stable at high speed. Having a shim on the inside and the outside is a good starting point for most tracks and TLR has given you the adjustment to make these small changes at the track either way.

New Carpet setup

Hello everyone,

This week I would like to inform everyone that TLR’s Frank Root had a couple of days to test on carpet with his TLR’s 22 4.0 at SCVRC and he came up with an awesome new setup for this surface. I have a great local track here in Florida called The FUZZ at DDH and yesterday I put this setup on my personal TLR 22 4.0 and I did some running, even with not being on the same JConcepts type of tire (Frank on JConcepts swaggers and Pin-downs and myself on JConcepts Octagons). This setup performed excellently!

Rear toe-in pills

Hello everyone,

 This week, I would like to talk rear toe-in pills on most newer TLR 1/10th scale vehicles. The rear toe-in pills are marked with a number with an arrow. Both the number and the arrow make a difference in what overall toe-in you have in your car. Below is a guide letting you know what overall toe-in with each pill and its direction.

4.0 with the arrow in = 2.5* 
2.5 with the arrow out = 2.75* 
3.5 with the arrow in = 3.0* 
3.0 with the arrow out = 3.25* 
3.0 with the arrow in =3.5* 
3.5 with the arrow out = 3.75* 
2.5 with the arrow in = 4.0* 
4.0 with the arrow out = 4.25*
