TLR 22 4.0 SR 2WD Spec Racing buggy race kit

Coming soon from TLR is the 22 4.0 SR spec racing buggy. Based off of the standard 4.0 the SR was specifically designed for the 17.5T Stock racing class, with an under-ROAR weight and option parts right out of the box. The kit takes the drastic improvements made in the on-track performance of the new 22 4.0 and maximised the drivetrain for spec racing. The car has shed weight by replacing carefully chosen stock 22 4.0 parts with the transmission boast the biggest gains where a direct drive system with a shortened top shaft, an aluminium diff with composite outdrives and aluminium CVA driveshafts with lightened steel axles have minimised overall weight and rotating mass.

A laydown transmission moves the motor forward by +20mm to a central motor location and provides two diff heights-standard of 3.0mm and +3.5mm for carpet and Astroturf. This creates a chassis that drives much flatter, more consistent and corners quicker, especially on throttle which is critical for spec racing. With the recommended Team Orion and Spektrum electronics the buggy weighs in at 1498g using the included 0.5mm ultra lightweight body shell. The kit is set for a release about mid-September.
