Build it and win! 22 4.0 SR 2WD SPEC Buggy Race Kit from TLR

22 4.0 SR 2WD SPEC Buggy Race Kit from TLR

The 17.5 buggy spec-class is the biggest class in electric off-road racing and perhaps all of RC today. A fully optimized buggy with a specific focus on stock racing is required to be competitive at the top end of the category, and the TLR®22™ 4.0 SPEC-Racer delivers such a buggy, right out of the box.

The 22 4.0 SPEC-Racer kit takes the drastic improvements made in the on-track performance of the new 22 4.0 and maximized the drivetrain for spec racing. Sounds simple, right? NO! That’s because our goal was to turn the weight loss requirement into a performance gain opportunity. For starters, the car has shed weight by replacing carefully chosen stock 22 4.0 parts. The transmission boast the biggest gains where a Direct Drive System with a shortened top shaft, an aluminum diff with composite outdrives and aluminum CVA driveshafts with lightened steel axles has minimized overall weight and rotating mass.

In true TLR fashion, handling was a particular focus. A laydown transmission moves the motor forward by 20mm+ to a central motor location and provides two diff heights-standard 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.

All told, the 22 4.0 SPEC-Racer weighs in under the ROAR minimum weight of 1499g, with no modification. But it’s the moment you hit the track when the advantages becomes clear. Front to back, the 22 4.0 SPEC-Racer is more capable of competing for wins right out of the box than any other stock 1/10 2WD buggy in its class.
