CVA's for the 22-4 Now Available!

Hello Racers,

We have just announced and started shipping CVA driveshaft sets for the 22-4.  The team has been testing these for quite a while, and the results have been VERY positive.  Ryan Maifield, Dustin Evans, and Dakotah Phend have all been using these on their summer victory tour.

A CVA joint will create more natural lock up or "bind" than a universal joint.  This helps to stiffen the suspension when under acceleration, which makes the car flatter and drive off harder.  It also helps jump landings, when you apply some throttle (especially when you know you are casing/flat landing).  

Along with going to the "shorty" setup on the 22-4, the CVA's were the other huge setup change the team has made that has resulted in many wins this summer.  Try them out today!

Surf City Setup for the SCTE 2.0

Hey Guys,

We didn't have the setup posted yet for Frank's TEN-SCTE 2.0 yesterday, so we just wanted to add another blog post to get it out to you now that it is up.

Frank was able to TQ and win with his SCTE 2.0, along with Jake Thayer and Ryan Dunford finishing 2nd and 3rd to complete the podium.  All 2.0's had very similar setups, and so we've posted Frank's winning setup to TLRacing.com.

22 Platform Shock Shaft and Body Chart

Hello Racers,

We have labelled our new shock shafts and shock bodies with their lengths rather than the vehicle type due to some of the bodies and shafts being used on multiple vehicles.  Below is a chart showing which bore length and shaft lengths are required for each vehicle.

This will help keep track of which shock body and shock shaft is needed for each TLR Vehicle.  Thanks to Ryan Dunford for helping put this together.

Race On!

TLR Diff Tool has many uses

Recently one of our team drivers, Otto Ausfelt, reached out to us to tell us about another way that he uses his TLR Diff Tool. As we all know, the TLR Diff Tool is nice to use for those quick on the fly diff tuning adjustments but you can also use it to adjust your inner front camber ball stud on your TLR 22-4. See the pictures below.

TLR2950 TLR Diff Tool

Accessing the front inner camber link on the 22-4. Can anyone find anything else interesting about this picture?
 
In order to insert the TLR Diff Tool into the ball cup, Otto use a hole punch to create the hole, which provides access to the 2mm hex on the ball stud.

The ball cup above is the finished product.
 
 
Thanks to Team Losi Racing Driver Otto Ausfelt for providing this quick tip.
