The championship-winning 22™ platform saw major revisions with the release of the 22 3.0 buggy. The 22T 3.0 stadium truck benefits from the same level of innovation. Plus, many parts that were considered optional on the 22T 2.0 are now included so you can build to team spec right out of the box.
Improved motor location for better control
As with the 22™ 3.0 buggy, the 22T 3.0 motor location is 12mm closer to the diff gear than it was in the previous version. This increases the rear weight bias, providing better rear grip on exit, more entry steering and a truck that, overall, is easier to drive. The new 3-gear transmission decreases chassis roll, greatly improving the vehicle's stability, consistency and braking. A 4-gear transmission is available separately for lower-grip tracks and different driving styles.
Revised front and rear 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 22 drivers have come to love, 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 to maximise performance.
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 optimised 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.
Aluminium-plate rear hub & transverse battery mounting
The hub base is moulded composite, allowing a bearing to be press fit without play and minimal unspring weight when compared to an all-aluminium hub. The aluminium plate is secured to the hub with an M3 screw and ball stud, which is vertically adjustable. Now the ball stud is supported by aluminium from pushing or pulling out, while still threading into composite so it cannot work loose.
The wider, 2.5mm aluminium chassis and moulded 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 82T HDS spur gears 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.
Option parts included!
Popular upgrade parts are included so owners can build a pro-level truck right out of the box. These include milled, 7075-T6 aluminium 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.
Shared Parts Compatibility
All the key 22T 3.0 suspension components are identical to those used on the 22SCT 3.0. Racers who run both vehicles won't need to keep as many spare parts and can swap parts between vehicles if needed.
