TLR 22-series machined 3-hole pistons

TLR 22-series machined 3-hole pistons

Team Losi Racing introduce two new 3-hole piston sets for 22-series vehicles. The 12mm pistons are offered in packs of four, and with the hole diameters of 1.3mm and 1.4mm. The TLR race team has had great success running the prototypes of these pistons on their 22 2.0 and 22-4 buggies and have dabbled with them on their 22T 2.0 and 22SCT 2.0’s also. Several key setups benefit from the reduced pack and quicker movement of the 3-hole pistons, especially on tracks that are a little bumpier.

Stock Truck was much of the same with the TQ and win going to Cole, Zach would finish up in 2nd. The Zach and Cole show would continue in Stock SCT with Zach taking TQ, but this time Cole would steal the show taking the overall win.

MIP TLR 22SCT 2.0 Pucks drive system

MIP TLR 22SCT 2.0 Pucks drive system

The latest vehicle to receive MIP’s Pucks drive system treatment is the TLR 22SCT 2.0 short course truck. Designed especially for 17.5T stock class racing the set greatly reduces the drivetrain’s rotating masses by utilising aluminium C-CVD driveshafts, aluminium differential outdrives and the drivepin-replacing Pucks cushions that take the place of the inferior steel pins. This combination greatly increases the longevity of the drivetrain and most importantly decreases the drivetrain’s overall rotating mass by a whopping 50 percent. The decrease in weight directly results in quicker acceleration, deceleration, and lower motor temperatures. Beside the driveshafts the set also includes a full MIP ball differential, minus the diff gear, as well as wheel axles and small parts.
