WEIGHS IN UNDER 1499G
The 22 3.0 SPEC-Racer includes many parts to reduce the weight of the kit. Built with kit hardware, Orion and Spektrum electronics the 22 3.0 SPEC-Racer weighs in UNDER 1499g when ready to hit the track. No need for titanium hardware to make minimum ROAR weight.
To maximize the top speed and performance of a stock motor, the drive train has been lightened with a Direct Drive System including the shortened top shaft, aluminum diff hubs with composite outdrives, and aluminum CVA driveshafts.
TRANSVERSE BATTERY MOUNTING
A new wider 2.5mm aluminum chassis and molded mud guards create a new battery mounting pocket which allows for both saddle and shorty type LiPo packs to be mounted transverse across the chassis. This allows for more tuning capability and a wider placement of the battery weight for a more stable car without increasing the total weight of the car.
LIGHTENED ALUMINUM CHASSIS
The 7075-T6 aluminum chassis plate has additional milled pockets to reduce the weight even further than the stock 22 3.0 chassis without compromising the flex characteristics for maximized handling and light weight performance.
REVISED MOTOR LOCATION
On the 22 3.0, the motor has been moved back and closer to the diff gear by 12mm, allowing for more rear grip on exit, more entry steering, and an overall easier to drive buggy.
ULTRA LIGHT WEIGHT CAB FORWARD BODY
Using the popular design of the 22 3.0 body, a body made from 0.5mm poly carbonate reduces the weight of the 22 3.0 body by over 15g, but lasts well due to the protected nature of 2wd buggy bodies.
INCLUDED OPTION PARTS
The 22 3.0 comes loaded with optional upgrades like a milled 7075 aluminum tops shafts, motor plate, rear camber block and ball stud spacers throughout.
ALUMINUM FRONT AXLES
7075-T6 front axles lighten up the front end, without compromising durability. The front hexes have also been updated to a 12mm hex size.
During testing, we found improvement in speed and rear end grip for both spec and modified classes changing from a 4-gear to a 3-gear transmission. With improved handling, and quicker acceleration the 3-gear transmission was the obvious choice for the 22 3.0 SPEC-Racer.
The 22 3.0 SPEC-Racer benefits from all of the suspension updates made to the 22 3.0, including VLA front suspension geometry, revised motor location, transverse battery mounting, 2mm wider rear pivot, rear shock locations and more.
