New for the 22 Series - Aluminum Trail Inserts

Good Day Racers!

We've been working hard to improve the durability of the trail inserts for the newest 22 spindles.  These spindles have been included on the 22 4.0, 22SCT 3.0, 22T 3.0, 22T 4.0 and the 22 4.0 SR, and have adjustable trail (2mm-4mm) and different ackermann inserts for adjustable ackermann feel as well.  

On occassion, we've seen the outer bearings pop through the inner lip of outside trail insert, particularly on impacts that hit the outside of the axle directly.  We have since released improved inserts and spindles, both of which help increase the durability of the molded parts - those are available now.  We also worked on Aluminum versions of the trail inserts in parallel to give the ultimate option for durability.

Available now are:

- TLR334048, Spindle Insert Set, Aluminum, 3mm Trail: All 22
- TLR334049, Spindle Insert Set, Aluminum, 2/4mm Trail: All 22

Each of these includes two machined aluminum trail inserts per package, as the aluminum inserts are only needed for the outer bearings on the left and right spindles.  We recommend continuing to use the molded composite inserts for the inner bearings on each spindle.

8IGHT Air filter tip

Hello everyone,

This week as I get ready for the trip to the 2017 Fall Brawl at Badlands RC Supercross in Myrtle Beach, SC, I wanted to give everyone a little tip for installing a new air filter (LOSA9151) on any TLR 8IGHT Nitro vehicles. Apply a small amount of black grease (TLR77000) to the front and rear of your air filter to maximize the filtered air going into your engine. If you’re at the Fall Brawl December 1st – 3rd stop by the JConcepts tent and say HI.

Mud guard with a fan mount (22 4.0 & 22 4.0 SR)

Hello everyone,

This past week TLR released the 22T 4.0 (which we will take a closer look at in next week’s blog post) and with that release came the addition of a mud guard with a fan mount included in the TLR 22T 4.0 kit. TLR has just released this for the 22 4.0 and 22 4.0 SR buggies (part number TLR231071). This is a great upgrade for stock racing and helps hold your fan in a fixed location without the worry of it coming off during a race.
