TLR's DC Elite Race Buggy Kit
TLR is continually looking to improve upon its 22 2WD
buggy platform in order to give team drivers every advantage at race
meets. That improvement has arrived in the form of the 22 5.0 DC ELITE kit that
will give you a race-ready professional grade, full TLR team kit in one
box! Enhanced for competition on clay and dirt tracks the 22 5.0 DC ELITE RC buggy
kit features a number of adjustable and optional parts so you can tweak and
customise your buggy to suit your driving. These include adjustable height rear
hubs and adjustable rear pivots. You have optional carbon fibre parts that can
be fitted throughout, and, the aluminium parts now come in blackâ€¦to answer Bruce
Wayneâ€™s question. With the jet black aluminium with silver edging parts
contrasting starkly against the hard-anodized shock bodies and chassis you also
have a good looking ride as well as a high-performance one.
The improvements to function on the 22 5.0 DC ELITE RC
buggy kit donâ€™t stop there. The revised steering geometry gives this
racing buggy improved mid-cornering steering
while the G3 shocks and enhanced flexibility of the 2mm chassis plate bring more
smoothness to high-speed direction changes.
If you wanted all the optional extras that our factory race team
uses in meets around the world then the 22 5.0 DC ELITE RC buggy kit is what you
are looking for. This is the most Pro Level Ready RC buggy kit build that has
ever been offered. Included in the kit are titanium, carbon fibre and black
anodized aluminium parts for lightweight dependable performance.
The tuning parts and carbon fibre options that proved so popular
on the exiting 22 5.0â€™s have all been included in the 22 5.0 DC ELITE RC buggy
kit. Electronics mounting plate, rear wing wash and +2mm front and rear shock
towers are all included.
Based on TLR team feedback and experience the improved
performance and ease of maintenance that the optional aluminium parts provide
meant they are now included in the 22 5.0 DC ELITE RC buggy kit as well. These
part options are the drag link, outer front bearing inserts, bell cranks, C and
D pivots, rear camber block, and, aluminium nuts throughout the
All-new rear hubs and inner rear pivots
The 22 5.0 DC ELITE RC buggy kit includes the most adjustable
rear suspension TLR has ever built. It includes track width, inner rear pivots
with roll centre, anti-squat and toe adjustment paired with the Variable Height
Axle (VHA) rear hubs which enable increased roll centre and axle height
Super Heavy Duty Slipper (SHDS)
The enhanced slipper included with the 22 5.0 DC ELITE RC buggy
kit has all new spur gears, pads, plates, spring and top
shaft. The slipper pads allow for 69T to 81T sized spur gears while the top
shaft uses a sturdy M4 lock nut. You get a more linear slip through the throttle
application due to the reduced slipper pad area while the thicker slipper plate
maintains consistent pressure across the surface of the pads.
G3 12mm big bore shocks
The 22 5.0 DC ELITE RC buggy kit includes G3 shocks which not
only give you the handling of the Gen II shocks but also come with the highly
anticipated ease of use improvements. There is no need for more e-clips as the
new shock bodies and shock caps increase the spring collar height by 3mm to give
you lower ride heights. The new spring cups and eyelets provide variable
off-sets and the new screw-in feature of the new eyelets ensures they will never
Front roll centre adjustment
The 22 5.0 DC ELITE RC buggy kit offers you the separate and
optional High Roll Centre (HRC) front pivot, and, also includes the standard Low
Roll Centre (LRC) front pivot with a new 1mm kick shim. This allows racers
plenty of roll options â€“ super low/low/medium or high roll centres, or, high
roll centre with 3mm of adjustment available.
New front camber block and battery hold down
The new front camber block gives you a third camber link option
between the traditional inside and outside holes. This effectively allows the
22 5.0 DC ELITE RC buggy kit to be more tuned in by allowing
different grip levels as this third camber link option gives you the optimal
balance of stability and steering in a wide range of conditions.
The 22 5.0 DC ELITE RC buggy kit has the easiest to use and most
versatile battery hold-down system. Keyed into the mudguards, the battery
cradles offer five fixed, easy to duplicate battery positions that allow you to
customise your set up. The stretchable straps used to hold down the batteries
can easily accommodate any height shorty battery plus any weight plates you may
want to add.
TLR Race Team preferred composite parts in the 22 5.0 DC ELITE
RC buggy kit include mudguards, waterfall and soft rear suspension arms, and,
Stiffezel front suspension arms. The inclusion of these parts allows you to tune
the balance and consistency in critical parts of your RC buggy.
Ballast tuning options
As with any high-level racing, the ballast tuning options on the
22 5.0 DC ELITE RC buggy kit allow changes in the weight bias and the static
weight to suit track conditions. You can mount the optional brass ballast under
the battery, under the laydown transmission idler,
and, under the servo.
