TLR 22 5.0 1/10th 2WD buggy series unveiled



Posted: 06 Dec 2018 04:42 AM PST


Following a first brief introduction during the recent International Offroad Carpet Championship in Las Vegas, Team Losi Racing now officially unveiled their new TLR 22 5.0 1/10th scale 2WD buggies. Coming in three different specifications, as astro turf and carpet-specific AC, dirt-loving DC and stock class oriented SR variant, all base on the same hard-anodised 2.0mm aluminium main chassis, however specific, included, optional parts ensure best possible performance in the given classes or environments. Features identical to all buggies are VLA front arms, all-new front camber blocks with a third ballstud option as well as new front roll centre adjustment that allows for super low, low, medium or high roll centres. Increasing the length of the steering bell cranks and spindle arms, along with changes to the Ackermann angle give the 22 5.0 a significantly smoother steering feel, especially off-centre and high speed while increasing low-speed steering for tighter tracks and 180’s.


The included Gen3 shock absorbers have been completely revamped and improved. The main improvement comes from changing to a 3.0mm shock shaft diameter. Screw mounted pistons, new moulded shock caps, thinner shock collar give 3mm more spring adjustment, locking eyelets and spring cups, -3mm, 0mm and 4mm spring cups, new shock end balls, standard and +2mm length eyelets. The 22 5.0 also boasts a versatile and easy to use battery hold down system. The battery cradles key into the mudguards for five fixed, and easy to replicate, battery positions. The battery is then held down with elastomer straps on each end that can stretch to fit any height shorty battery and any weight plates under it. Moving to the rear, all three kits include a 3-gear laydown transmission and the rear shock tower can be flipped for a forward or rearward bias. This means the Gen3 rear shocks can be mounted in front of the rear tower and suspension arm, or in the traditional location on the back of the arm.


The 22 5.0 AC is 100-percent carpet race ready. It includes an all-new gear diff, front and rear sway bars, narrow front wheels, raised diff inserts and raised axle rear hubs, as well as pistons, springs and moulded composites consistent with what racers expect from a race ready carpet off-road buggy.


TLR 22 5.0 AC key features:
– Revamped steering geometry
– Super Heavy Duty Slipper (SHDS)
– Laydown transmission configuration
– Stiffezel suspension components
– Adjustable rear shock location
– Built-In Motor Fan Mount
– Lightweight body
– 2.0 Milled aluminum chassis
– Aluminum-plate rear hub
– Gen3 12mm big-bore shocks
– Ballast tuning options (ballast sold separately)
– Many popular option parts included as standard


The 22 5.0 DC includes a fully updated ball diff. Using all of the revised components from the 22 2.0 ball differential, the 22 5.0 diff delivers super-smooth, long-lasting performance. Improvements include a larger diameter diff screw, harder, longer lasting thrust washers, and a stiffer slipper spring for improved durability and thrust assembly life. Also included are wide front wheels, a LRC D block as well as a dirt-specific setup.


TLR 22 5.0 DC key features:
– Revamped steering geometry
– Super Heavy Duty Slipper (SHDS)
– Laydown transmission configuration
– Stiffezel suspension components
– Adjustable rear shock location
– Built-In Motor Fan Mount
– Lightweight body
– 2.0 Milled aluminum chassis
– Aluminum-plate rear hub
– Gen3 12mm big-bore shocks
– Ballast tuning options (ballast sold separately)
– Many popular option parts included as standard


 


The 22 5.0 SR rocks the innovative 22 SR differential with the aluminium diff assembly and composite outdrive, providing the easiest to maintain and lightest diff system. For the 5.0 SR, TLR replaced the composite outdrive rings with longer CNC machined aluminium rings to improve the outdrive durability for today’s ultra-high grip clay tracks. To reduce weight and friction in the driveline, the 22 5.0 idler gear and main ball diff gear have both been CNC machined to be substantially narrower. The impact on the track is noticeable with quicker acceleration and less drag at top speeds.


TLR 22 5.0 SR key features:
– Weighs under the ROAR 1499g minimum, out of the box
– Lightweight and long lasting SR drivetrain
– Direct Drive System (DDS) included as standard
– Laydown transmission configuration
– Stiffezel suspension components
– Adjustable rear shock location
– Built-In Motor Fan Mount
– Lightweight body
– 2.0 Milled aluminum chassis
– Aluminum-plate rear hub
– Gen3 12mm big-bore shocks
– Ballast tuning options (ballast sold separately)
– Many popular option parts included as standard


 


Included in all kits are also a lightweight 0.7mm body shell, as well as front and rear wings. The DC and SR kit are set for an early January 2019 release while the AC will hit stores in late February. Full information on all new features and the differences between the kits can be found here (AC), here (DC), or here (SR).

Spencer Rivkins wins at rained-out Fall Brawl



Posted: 06 Dec 2018 01:38 AM PST


One of the best nitro races on the east coast, the 2018 Fall Brawl is always jammed pack with awesome competition, killer layout, and a truly fun atmosphere. As fun as the track was … everything was just about perfect, unfortunately, mother nature is going to win any outdoor war and halfway through qualifying, the rain came and continued into the next day washing away the weekend of racing. However, with almost two rounds in the books, the race was called and awards were given based on the qualifying action that took place. After a disappointing result from the 2018 IFMAR World Championships in Perth, Australia, Spencer Rivkin wanted a bit of redemption in the Pro Nitro Buggy class. Back into 1/8th scale mode, Spencer made the trip from Surprise, Arizona to his first ever Fall Brawl experience and loved it. Badlands is definitely a track suited to Spencer’s driving style and we saw him really distance himself from his competition in quals 1 and 2. As the only Pro Nitro driver to turn 12 laps in qualifying, Spencer grabbed two TQs before the rain came and was awarded 1st place once the race was called.


It’s been a while to see Jeff Keeton on the top step of the podium and showing some great speed in the Open Nitro class, Jeff was able to TQ the 2nd qualifier giving him the overall TQ until the rain hit. With that killer result, Jeff was happy he took the win.


Having just announced his departure from Serpent, now one was exactly sure when they were going to see Paul Ciccarello next. Fortunately, it was sooner rather than later and Paul hasn’t changed one bit. He still loves being at the track and still loves racing. Excited to get rolling with his new cars, Paul quickly jumped into his 40+ class right where he left off. With a TQ effort in round 2, Paul got the overall TQ and was awarded 1st place once the rain came.


Some call him a Truggy expert, Patrick Rossiter Jr., is always down for a good ol’ truggy battle. Having to manage the event with RD duties and racing, PRJ was still able to get the job done in qualifying with a TQ effort and with the rain cancellation, Patrick took home the win in E-Truggy.

Yokomo RPXII brushless speed controller



Posted: 06 Dec 2018 01:24 AM PST


Yokomo have introduced their all new RPXII brushless speed controller for 1/10th scale racing and drift classes. The ESC utilises the highest grade FET technology for the lowest possible internal resistance and high efficiency, giving more power and runtime while producing minimum heat. The new ATH Auto Throttle Function with simplified settings for stock classes as well as a new and efficient boost adjustment, frequency as well as individual PWM and brake frequency adjustment help to fine-tune the driving feeling as is the new voltage limit function to manage possible throttle fading during a run. The controller is housed in an aluminium case and it utilises a 30mm fan unit for best possible heat dissipation. Along with the release of the controller comes a new programming card that can store up to three kinds of setting modes to maximise the usability.
