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.
Revised Motor Location
As with the 22 3.0 buggy, the 22T 3.0 motor location is 12mm closer
to the diff gear than it was in the previous version. 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 lower-grip tracks and different driving
Revised Front Suspension Geometry
All-new front caster blocks and suspension arms allow for variable
length arm adjustment. This, together with the bell crank steering
system, provides the same amazing steering 22 drivers have come to love,
but with a more consistent feel between different surfaces. It all adds
up to a truck with neutral balance that requires less tuning from track
to track to maximize performance.
Revised Rear Suspension Geometry
The rear pivot is 2mm wider for better rear grip and stability
without losing any corner speed. The rear arms and shock towers have
revised shock mounting locations. The jumping, landing, and chassis roll
dynamics of the rear end have been optimized for a higher rear weight
Adjustable Toe and Anti-Squat
As with the 22 3.0 buggy, the rear pivots use inserts for adjusting
the rear toe and anti-squat. This makes it easy to quickly adjust
geometry without having to buy additional parts. The rear toe can be
adjusted in 0.5 degree increments from 2.5 to 4.0 degrees. Rear
anti-squat adjustments range from 0.0 to 3.0 degrees.
Aluminum-Plate Rear Hub
The hub base is molded composite, allowing a bearing to be press fit
without play and minimal unspring weight when compared to an
all-aluminum hub. The aluminum plate is secured to the hub with an M3
screw and ball stud, which is vertically adjustable. Now the ball stud
is supported by aluminum from pushing or pulling out, while still
threading into composite so it cannot work loose.
Transverse Battery Mounting
The wider, 2.5mm aluminum chassis and molded mud guards include the
option to mount saddle and shorty Li-Po packs across the chassis. Shorty
Li-Po packs can also be mounted fore to aft. This allows for more
weight bias tuning front to rear and wider placement of battery weight.
The result is a more stable truck without an increase in static weight.
HDS Slipper with HD Spring
The 22T 3.0 includes Heavy Duty Slipper (HDS) pads and 82T HDS spur
gears as well as grooved and tapered slipper plates. The biggest
improvement comes with the HD slipper spring that offers a wider range
of adjustment. It also makes the slipper more consistent.
Included Option Parts
Popular upgrade parts are included so owners can build a pro-level
truck right out of the box. These include milled, 7075-T6 aluminum parts
like the top shaft, adjustable rear pivot mounts, motor plate, rear
camber block, shock bleeder caps and ball stud spacers throughout.
Machined shock pistons and bushings, Ti-CN coated shock shafts and hinge
pins, C3 spec hub bearings and low frequency springs are also included.
Shared Parts Compatibility
All the key 22T 3.0 suspension components are identical to those used
on the 22SCT 3.0. Racers who run both vehicles won't need to keep as
many spare parts and can swap parts between vehicles if needed.
