Turf set-ups

Hello everyone,

 

This week I reached out to team driver Anthony Mazzara after his awesome finish at last weekend’s JConcepts Turf Nationals at RC Madness with over 300 entries.

 

Anthony TQed and won the 40+ 2wd mod. class,   3rd in the Pro 2wd mod. class  and 5th in the Pro 4wd mod. class.

 

I asked Anthony to share his setups for his TLR 22 4.0 and TLR 22-4 2.0 from this event.

Rear bumper mod

Hello everyone,

 This week I would like to share a little bumper mod on the TLR 22 4.0, 22 4.0 SR, 22T 3.0 line of vehicles. Sometimes trying to install the rear toe-in block with the bumper can be a little tough and this mod helps with that. Frist remove the material shown in the picture below. With this material removed you can install the toe-in block first using the center 2x6mm Flat Head Screw then sliding the bumper into its location and then installing the two 3x12mm Flat Head Screws securing everything together.

TLR 22-4 2.0 front spindle height

Hello everyone,

 Today I would like to talk about raising the front spindle height on the TLR 22-4 2.0/22-4. This is a fairly easy mod and can improve the steering and help the car drive better/easier on higher bite tracks such as turf and carpet. First remove 2mm’s of material from the bottom of the front caster blocks and add a 2mm spacer to the top of the caster block (see picture). After this is done I went to a 1mm spacer on the spindle steering turnbuckle and added 2mm’s more of drop to the front shocks to compensate the added spindle height. Another thing to keep in mind is this mod woks great with TLR’s Gen II +3.5 Rear Hub Set part number TLR234088.

22-4 Low Profile Body

Hello everyone,

 Making its debut today at the 2017 ROAR Nationals, is an all new prototype body for the TLR 22-4 2.0. Unofficially dubbed the "Low Profile 22-4 Body", TLR used the fan favorite styling of the 22 4.0 body as the basis for this new body shell that will fit the 22-4 1.0 and 2.0 4wd buggies. With a lower cab section, and no vertically fin, the style is matched by a more flowing and better rotating body when compared to the cab forward offering. JP Richards was the first to don the body in practice and had this to say, "First glance, the body has that new sleek and edgy design. Then you hit the track and it really helps the car have a fluent feel, with a good balance of steering, stability, and traction without the overbearing feel of a tall front cab."

 The Low Profile Body is still in the prototype stage, but is roughly scheduled for a late 2017 release. Check TLRacing.com this fall/winter for further details.
