The 22T 3.0 is optimized for today's tracks with updated suspension geometry, an all-new rear end, and a 3-gear transmission that maximizes rear grip. And you get it all plus the corner-speed advantage of a mid-motor configuration.

REVISED MOTOR LOCATION AND 3-GEAR TRANSMISSION
The motor location is 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 is overall easier to drive. The new 3-gear transmission decreases chassis roll, improving the vehicle’s stability, consistency and braking.
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 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.
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 bias percentage.
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 that's vertically adjustable. The ball stud is supported by aluminum from pushing or pulling out, so it can't 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 an 82T HDS spur gear 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 include in the box. 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.
