Team Losi Racing 22 5.0 AC 1/10 2WD Electric Buggy for Carpet and Astro (Unassembled Kit)

The TLR 22 5.0 AC 1/10 2WD Electric Buggy Kit is the next evolution of the 22 2WD buggy platform. By optimising the 22 5.0 specifically for carpet and turf tracks, TLR engineers have been able to narrow the setup window and maximise performance. The 22 4.0 nailed the rear end, maximising adjustment and rear grip for all surfaces, but the Team Losi Racing® development team knew the 22 5.0 could still be improved. Turning focus to the front suspension, they found a way to make the 22 5.0 significantly easier to drive while still giving the car more mid-corning steering.

Carpet Ready Setup: The 22 5.0 AC is 100% carpet race ready. It includes a redesigned gear diff, front and rear sway bars, narrow front wheels, raised diff inserts and raised axle rear hubs, as well as pistons, springs and moulded composites consistent with what racers expect from a race ready carpet off-road buggy.
Gen3 12mm Big Bore Shocks: The Gen3 shocks have been completely revamped and improved. The main performance improvement comes from changing to a 3.0mm shock shaft diameter, the 22 5.0 feels "alive" around the track while also landing better with an improved compression/rebound balance. Other improvements include: Screw mounted pistons, redesigned moulded shock caps, thinner shock collar which give 3mm more spring adjustment, locking eyelets and spring cups, -3mm, 0mm and 4mm spring cups, easy to install shock end balls, standard and +2mm length eyelets.

Option Parts Included: The 22 5.0 includes a healthy list of included option parts: Aluminium Ball Stud Washers throughout, Aluminium Clamping Hexes, Aluminium Front Axles, Aluminium Rear Camber Block, Full Machined Shock Internals, TLR Low Frequency Springs, Adjustable Rear Toe Plate and Anti-Squat Block, and Sway Bars for front and rear.

2.0 Milled Aluminium Chassis: Changing from the 2.5mm thick chassis plate, the 22 5.0 has been improved with a 2.0mm thick chassis plate. The thinner chassis provides more flex and grip, making the 22 5.0 easier to drive and less prone to flipping, as well as absorbing bumps and rough landings far better.

Lightweight 22 5.0 Body: Maintaining the excellent balance, grip, and stability of the 22 4.0 body with a similar styling, the 22 5.0 Lightweight (LW) body is pulled from 0.7mm PC plate to keep the centre of gravity (CG) low, and the static weight even lower. As with all TLR bodies, the body will be pre-cut in the kit.

Wheels Included: TLR Kits still include a full set of fluorescent yellow wheels to get racers on the track quickly. The 22 5.0 does include the Stiffened narrow front wheels which provide more consistent front grip, and more steering in high load turns.

All Metric Hardware: Using all metric hardware make it easy to find replacement screws, nuts and washers, and helps to limit the number to tools required in the toolbox.

Sway Bars Included: Optimizing the setup for carpet, front and rear sway bars with mounts are included to help control roll and increase stability. The increased consistency will lead to few mistakes and help all racers reduce lap times.

Adjustable Rear Shock Location: The rear shock tower can be flipped for a forward or rearward bias. This means the Gen3 rear shocks can be mounted in front of the rear tower and suspension arm, or in the traditional location on the back of the arm. This is a popular tuning option for high-grip surfaces that increases forward weight bias, rear end stability, and landing ability.
