Team Losi Racing 22 2.0 1/10 Scale 2WD Electric Racing Buggy Kit
Recently got one of these directly from Horizon Hobby and set it up in mid-motor. I had all the aluminum upgrades for the mid-motor configuration after attempting it in my 22SCT. I must say, this buggy is surprisingly good at our indoor track in mid motor. It exits turns better than anything I've driven other than 4wd platforms. If you plan to set-up a mid-motor version, make sure to get the weight kit for the rear of the buggy. Also, you will need a set of saddle packs--nothing else fits. As far as the new upgrades to the 22 platform, they are appreciably different. It is "as-advertised" with the front steering and camber block changes. My 22 and 22SCT's shocks are terrible to leak, but the new design eliminates that issue. The diff is better; however, TLR has to improve the diff screw. It is still the same small little thing that breaks or bends nearly every time one attempts to adjust the diff. I would suggest switching to the MIP super diff in all 22 platforms to eliminate this issue. Also, avoid that AVID thrust washer at all costs. It doesn't work at all.

Team Losi Racing 22 2.0 1/10 Scale 2WD Electric Racing Buggy Kit
I own several TLR cars. This fits right into their mold. The car is good to drive and works well with inexperienced drivers. I have learned that this car is not for every driver. I have driven a few other buggies that IMO drove for me a little better than my TLR 22 2.0. Now this car was made for the newer smaller electronics. So put that on your list. You will need to be cleaver with how you mount. With TlR and watching the pros drive it, I have no question about durability. While the manual dont spell out EVERY SINGLE DETAIL, this car is extremely easy to work on.....

Team Losi Racing 22 2.0 1/10 Scale 2WD Electric Racing Buggy Kit
Been running this car for 3 weeks now. A few others at the local track have em also. All of us are running it in the mid motor config. on a mid to high bite big clay track. This is my first 2wd mod car and ive made every A main so far. We have typically 2-3 heats of mod buggy. This car is easy to drive. I have yet to break anything. I race/practice 3-5 days a week. I highly recommend this car. its amazing!!

Team Losi Racing 22 2.0 1/10 Scale 2WD Electric Racing Buggy Kit
I just bought this car immediately when it released without any hesitation. I sold my tlr 22 first version, because it was always too hard to drive to me. I want to change it. However, when I assembled this new car and ran it on my local tracks, it is still really hard to tune. I have tried a lot of setups and ask the racers of my local hobby shop, but did not change too much. The quality of TLR is the best, but is not a easy guy that everyone can run it in a fast lap time. A little disjointed, the introductions said this car is much easier to handle, but until now, I did not see. I will keep tuning this car and have a look what will happen.

Team Losi Racing 22 2.0 1/10 Scale 2WD Electric Racing Buggy Kit
The TLR is my first 1/10 2wd buggy since the original Grasshopper. The kit went together very smooth. The instructions could be a little more clear at times, but in no way hinder you from being able to build it. Also with this kit you get a bunch of upgrades right in the box, as well as two sets of wheels. One pair in white and one pair in yellow. Many have told me that its much easier to drive than the original 22, but I have not driven the first one. I can say however that this car is easy to drive weather you are experenced in buggy. At least for me, learning on this platform has been a breeze.

Team Losi Racing 22 2.0 1/10 Scale 2WD Electric Racing Buggy Kit
Just put mine together yesterday, I also own a Schumacher Cougar KR that I just built and so far..I like the Cougar build better. I like the Losi, but not sure what all the hype is about. Yes I know they win races, but I'm not those drivers so..I had two screws strip already, the gearbox doesn't sit flush down on top of the toe block, the manual is probably the worst I have seen..they don't really give you any clear instructions on some things..I found myself going back and forth between pages wondering what the they meant. Also seems like they want you to use Losi only parts..especially the front wheels..really? No universal axles for other rims? The rear hexes will fit Pro-Line, Associated and Schumacher, but nope..not on the front. I don't like how everything is so tight in the chassis when it comes to electronics, I thought the Cougar KR was tight..the 2.0 is horrible, barely room for anything. If I would have known I needed to buy a shorty servo, a different esc with the motor wires coming out from the side instead of the top(viper vtx10)...I would have never bought this. It's a 1/10 buggy, there should be no need for "special" certain kind of electronics to run this. I guess it's already obvious what I think about the body..doesn't fit. It won't fit with my esc mounted on the battery strap because of the motor wires sticking out on the sides..so..that stinks. Not sure why Losi thought it necessary to make the body so small..just no room underneath at all. As far as I'm concerned, this buggy runs good at the track from what I have seen from other owners, but having to buy a new/different servo and esc just to get everything to fit better..is not a good purchase for me. It's either going to sit for a while or I will end up selling it and using the money for another Schumacher, now those are well worth the money when it comes to cost vs. quality and build.
