Team Losi have introduced the new TLR 22T 3.0 MM Race Kit. The championship-winning 22 platform saw major revisions with the release of the 22 3.0 buggy. The 22T 3.0 stadium truck benefits from the same level of innovation. Plus, many parts that were considered optional on the 22T 2.0 are now included so you can build to team spec right out of the box. The motor location is now 12mm closer to the diff gear than it was on the 22T 2.0. This increases the rear weight bias, providing better rear grip on exit, more entry steering and a truck that, overall, is easier to drive. The new 3-gear transmission decreases chassis roll, greatly improving the vehicle’s stability, consistency and braking. A 4-gear transmission is available separately for lowergrip tracks and different driving styles.
