Weighs in Under 1499g

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.

Lightweight Drivetrain

Lightweight Drivetrain

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

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 front to rear and a wider placement of the battery weight for a more stable car without increasing the total weight of the car.

Lightened Aluminum Chassis

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

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

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

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

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.

3-Gear Transmission

3-Gear Transmission

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.

Revised Geometry

Revised Geometry

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.

The award-winning 22 3.0 buggy has set the standard for peak performance in modified 2WD racing. The 22 3.0 SPEC-Racer kit does the exact same thing for the spec class. Every part has been examined and, where necessary, optimized to give you a spec racer that can dominate the competition, right out of the box.

Weighs in Under 1499 Grams
No expensive aftermarket parts are required to meet the minimum ROAR weight. Extra pockets milled into the chassis, along an assortment of lightweight parts, allow the 22™ 3.0 SPEC-Racer to be built using kit hardware and still weigh in under 1499 grams with all electronics installed. This gives racers the freedom to meet the ROAR minimum by using bigger, more powerful batteries or strategically adding ballast to maximize performance.

Lightweight Drivetrain
Major weight savings in the drivetrain let racers extract more effective torque and top speed from stock motors. The innovative ball differential, with its aluminum hub and composite outdrives, is 12.7g lighter than the stock diff. The TLR® Direct Drive System weighs 9.3g less than a slipper assembly, and the aluminum driveshafts with lightened axles are 7.8g lighter than the stock steel CVAs. It all adds up to 29.8 grams of weight saved in the drivetrain alone.

Ultra Lightweight Body
The included body has the same cab-forward lines as the original 22 3.0 body but is made of lighter 0.5mm polycarbonate. This gives the buggy all the aerodynamic benefits of the original while saving over 20 grams of weight and lowering roll center at the same time.

Lightweight Motor Plate
A smaller motor plate designed specifically for the smaller spur gear sizes used in Spec-Class racing is included. It is CNC machined from 7075-T6 aluminum and paired with a polycarbonate gear cover to give racers the lightest and tidiest motor plate setup available.

Proven 22 3.0 Platform Features
The real genius in the 22 3.0 SPEC-Racer’s design is that team engineers were able to shave weight without sacrificing any of the most important features that make the standard 22 3.0 buggy such a dominating force in its class. These include the VLA front suspension geometry, revised motor location, transverse battery mounting, 2mm wider rear pivot, revised rear shock locations and more.
