NEW- STEERING RACK CONVERSION SET for the TLR 22, 22SCT and 22T.
All new CNC machined design with bearings and steel bushings for reliable steering and precise track performance.
This design was carried over from our popular parts for other buggy models and is surprisingly compact and efficient on the 22. The conversion bolts into the stock locations of the 22 chassis with ease and uses all of the stock hardware.
The geometry is spot on with the steering rack working in perfect tandem with the front links and suspension of the 22. The reverse mounted steering cranks matches the movement of the steering knuckles resulting in aligned angles of the steering turnbuckles when turning left and right.
Bump steer can be easily changed by spacing the rack up or down and the steering link angle can be changed by adding spacers to the inboard ball ends.
The inboard ball ends laydown position also helps eliminate the dreaded ball cup pop off’s of the 22SCT.
For proper clearance of the steering rack new heavy duty servo mounts are included so that the servo is positioned 6mm further back. It may be possible with certain servo models to mount the servo on the front side of the mounts if you also used an extra slim servo horn but that may be something discovered down the road. The design is very tunable and so allows for experienced racers to experiment with set ups.
Constructed of high quality alloy with the rack and cranks made of 7075 alloy and all alloy parts anodized in polished gun metal gray.
Please note: Slight grinding of the upper nylon bulkhead is needed to give proper clearance of the servo link ball cups.
Instruction sheet included.
$79.95 MSRP. TLR 22, 22SCT OR 22T REQUIRED. For experienced hobbyists.
Matt Olson had a fantastic weekend out at SDRC in 4×4 SC with my Tekin powered MIP Pro4mance Scte. TQing and taking the win over talented Tekno drivers Barry Baker and Chad Panek. Olson’s MIP truck was equipped with Tekin’s all new Pro4 HD 4300KV motor geared 41/16 controlled by the Tekin RX8 esc. “The truck was unbelievably fast, controllable, and the power band produced by the HD motor was smooth and linear.”
Matt would also finish up 5th in 2wd Mod buggy and 4th in 2wd Mod Short course behind factory fast Steven Hartson. Both of his 2wd’s were equipped with the Tekin RS Pro and 7.5/8.5 Gen 2 motors. “Thank you Tekin for providing me with exceptional high quality products to power my RC passion.”
Brian Henn would debut his Tekin Pro 4HD 4300kv this past weekend at Rd 2 of the RC Pro Texas State Series in Corups Christy, Texas. Henn would Tq Rd1 and Rd2 securing the overall Tq position for the mains. With temps reaching near 90 degrees on mains day Henn’s Pro 4HD and Rx8 esc would have no issue taking wins in A1 and A2 in dominating fashion securing the overall win of Rd2 of the RC Pro Series Texas division.
