The 22T™ 2.0 kit continues to build on the championship-winning 22™ platform with a host of new features that make it easy for competitors of all experience levels to drive fast. Updates include advanced suspension geometry adapted from the 22 2.0 buggy, a new bell-crank steering system, Gen II shocks with X-ring seals and a thoroughly refined ball differential with tungsten carbide diff balls. You also get popular option parts as well as hardware for both mid- and rear-motor configurations.
Updated Suspension Geometry
New suspension geometry makes the 22T™ 2.0 truck easy to drive, and drive fast. It combines castor blocks from the 22™ 2.0 buggy with 22T 2.0-specific spindles so it’s easier to drive around center. This combination also lets the rear end squat under throttle for better acceleration. Wider rear arms and a narrower hex with less off-set make for easier direction changes and quicker releases from the turns.
Gen II 12mm Big Bore Shocks
The Gen II shocks keep operating friction to a minimum without leaking or weeping oil. This keeps suspension response consistent and significantly reduces maintenance. They deliver a plush ride near the top of their travel but still provide plenty of bottoming resistance when landing big jumps.
Updated parts include:
- Longer shock bodies and shafts for increased suspension travel
- CNC machined 2-hole 1.6mm and 1.7mm pistons
- CNC machined O-ring and guide bushings
- New silicone X-ring seals
- Ti-Carbo-nitride coated shock shafts
- Aluminum bleeder screw shock caps
- Over-thread upper shock seals
- Finer shock body finish
Designed for Durability
A main focus of the 22 2.0 platform design is durability. Composite components are 15% beefier than most off-road race kits and aluminum parts are used in all the critical areas to reduce wear and the likelihood of costly repairs.
Optimized 22 Differential
The ball differential now features all new components that improve performance and durability.
- Tungsten carbide diff and thrust balls
- Larger OD diff rings with surface ground finish
- Heat treated thrust washers
- Gen II, one-piece diff nut
- Outdrive with 2nd operation ring surface machining
- Centering pins on the main diff gear
Hard Anodized 7075-T6 Aluminum Chassis
The strength and managed flex characteristics of this chassis make it perfect for competition. Additional milled pockets shave more than 10 grams from its weight without sacrificing any of its strength. The added pockets also let you mount the servo and ESC lower which in turn helps lower the truck’s center of gravity.
All screws, nuts and bearings are metric, making the 22T 2.0 kit a truly global racing platform.
