Video Overview

Overview

The 22™ 3.0 buggy has been designed to give racers a versatile platform that easily adapts to changing track conditions without requiring a lot tuning changes.

3-Gear Transmission with Revised Motor Location

The motor location is 12mm closer to the diff gear than on the 2.0. This increases the rear weight bias, providing better rear grip on exit, more entry steering and a buggy 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.

No-Compromise, Mid-Motor Design

Focusing solely on a mid-motor design eliminated the weight and engineering compromises inherent in a chassis with two mounting options.

Transverse Battery Mounting

The wider, 2.5mm aluminum chassis and molded 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 buggy without an increase in static weight.

Option Parts Included

Many of the parts included with this kit are popular upgrades that provide everything needed to build a pro-level buggy right out of the box. This includes milled, 7075-T6 aluminum 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, low frequency springs and the heavy duty slipper system are also included.

Revised Front Suspension Geometry

All-new front caster blocks and suspension arms allow for variable length arm adjustment. This makes it possible to run with short or long front-arm geometry. 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 buggy with neutral balance that requires less tuning from track to track to maximize performance.

Revised Rear Suspension Geometry

The rear pivot is 2mm wider, giving the buggy significantly more grip and stability without losing any corner speed. The rear arm has also been revised with new shock mount locations and a slightly reduced gull wing effect. This, paired with the popular '0 hole' modification that is now designed into the rear shock tower, optimizes the jumping, landing and chassis roll dynamics of the rear end for the higher rear-weight bias.

Lightweight 7075-T6 Aluminum Chassis

This chassis is the same length as the optional 2.5mm chassis for the 2.0 version. It features strategically milled pockets that reduce weight without compromising strength.

Adjustable Rear Toe and Anti-Squat

The rear pivots now accept adjustable inserts that allow you to make quick toe and anti-squat adjustments without having to buy additional parts. Both adjustments are made in 0.5 degree increments. Toe adjustments range from 2.5 to 4.0 degrees. Anti-squat adjustments range from 0.0 to 3.0 degrees.

Gen II 12mm Big Bore Shocks

The new standard for performance and maintenance, these shocks feature:

  • X-Ring Seals
  • Machined shock bushings
  • Machined 2×1.5 and 2×1.6mm pistons
  • TiCN-coated shock shafts
  • Aluminum bleeder screw caps
  • Threaded hard anodized shock bodies
  • Low frequency springs
  • Spring cups that snap onto the shock shafts

Updated Ball Differential

The 22 3.0 ball differential delivers super-smooth, long lasting performance thanks to features like:

  • Flattened 2nd operation outdrives
  • Revised thrust washers
  • Tungsten carbide diff and thrust balls
  • One-piece nut
  • Self-centering diff gear

HDS Slipper

Heavy Duty Slipper (HDS) pads and 78T HDS spur gears, along with grooved and tapered slipper plates, are included. They all work together to improve slipper consistency and durability.
