The 22SCT 3.0 builds on the advances of its predecessor with a host of changes that make it the truck to beat in short course competition. Also, many parts that were considered optional on the 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 22SCT 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.
During testing, the 3-gear transmission substantially improved speed and rear-end grip for both spec and modified classes. Other benefits included better handling, quicker acceleration. A 4-gear transmission is available separately so drivers can dial in response for any track surface, grip level, or driving style.
Aluminium-Plate Rear Hub
The hub base is moulded composite, allowing a bearing to be press fit without play and minimal unspring weight when compared to an all-aluminium hub. The aluminium plate is secured to the hub with an M3 screw and ball stud, which is vertically adjustable. Now the ball stud is supported by aluminium from pushing or pulling out, while still threading into composite so it cannot work loose.
Transverse Battery Mounting
The new, wider 2.5mm aluminium chassis and moulded mud guards create a battery mounting pocket which allows shorty- and saddle-style LiPo packs to be mounted transversely across the chassis. Shorty packs can also be mounted in line with the chassis. This allows racers to fine tune the weight bias of the truck for just about every racing condition imaginable.
HDS Slipper with HD Spring
The 22SCT 3.0 includes Heavy Duty Slipper (HDS) pads and 84T 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
Many of the parts included with this kit are popular upgrades that provide everything needed to build a pro-level short course truck right out of the box. This includes milled, 7075-T6 aluminium parts like the top shaft, adjustable rear pivot mounts, motor plate, rear camber block, bleeder shock caps and ball stud spacers throughout.
