The 22™SCT RTC™ vehicle is the next evolution of the 22 Platform. A first of its kind, this Ready-to-Compete™ completion level of a Team Losi Racing™ 1/10-scale short course truck requires no building, installation of electronics or detailing to get track-ready. The only thing between this model and a podium worthy finish is a battery, charger and a driver.
The Ready-to-Compete™ completion level allows those who don’t have the time or the desire to build a race-quality RC vehicle the opportunity to gain access to a race-bred machine that can compete at any level. RTC™ vehicles are factory assembled and tuned to exact specifications. The vehicle is set to a neutral configuration and can be adapted to hundreds of tuning settings and options. The enclosed vehicle is the same as the available model 22SCT kit only assembled.
Equipped with a powerful 17.5T Sensored brushless motor and ESC with LiPo cut-off. The Dynamite ESC comes with programmable timing and non-timing functions. Vehicle includes a spare pinion gear to accommodate the timing gear ratio. The interference-free, 2-channel DX2L transmitter features Spektrum 2.4 GHz DSM ® technology. Featuring independent travel dials, throttle limiting switch and a steering dual-rate knob. Silicone filled viscous gear differential is virtually maintenance free, allowing more run time and less wrench time to increase the overall durability of the drivetrain. Equipped with an extra-high torque digital servo that yields 140 oz-in of torque and a satisfying full-range of speed. The servo utilizes full ball bearings and metal gears for enhanced precision and durability. The largest shock bore in its class enables improved handling over bumps and improved jump recovery. The included aluminum shock caps include a bleeder screw for easy maintenance and rebuilding. Designed for optimal performance, the 22™ SCT has a body that maximizes airflow around and through it.
To meet the demands of short course racing, the 22 SCT is agile and built to last with 4mm heavy-duty turnbuckles. The precision-machined 7075-T6 2.5mm aluminum chassis is hard-anodized for increased durability and a great look. This design allows the overall height of the front tower to be much lower and lowers the 22SCT's center of gravity, which improves handling. Smooth the ride, tame large jumps and tune suspension performance with these oversized shocks with bladder compensators and bleeder valve shock caps. Every piece of hardware on the 22SCT is metric so there is no guessing and no need for multiple sets of tools. The 22SCT RTC comes fully-equipped with a full set of high-speed, sealed ball-bearings are used throughout the vehicle to ensure maximum efficiency.

nope sorry, not ready to compete.
i fail to even see a reason for cars like this. you're just going to have to take it half apart and rebuild and tune it for your track anyway so buying an RTR doesn't save you crap. and besides i don't think racers have a problem building. they spend more time working on and tuning there cars than they do driving them.
im also confused by the brand. it's RTR, but it's TL racing. aren't RTR's under the Losi name? so losi will have an RTR version of this truck, and TL racing will have an RTR version of this truck. wait Losi is still using the old XXX truck isn't it (?) ... so does that mean TL racing is no longer a dedicated race brand, they are now making RTR's? dammit horizon sucks. sometimes i think they are trying to be confusing.
maybe it depends on the track. cause everyone i know who has a SCT and puts it on a track has had to switch to ball diff. couldn't get the gear diff to be smooth and consistent enough to work. that's all indoor blue groove stuff. what's the tracks like in your neck of the woods?
Honestly, GEAR diffs in race vehicles suck....they are not smooth....never will be as smooth as a ball diff. A properly built and maintained ball diff will out perform a gear diff any day. Less rotating mass, smooth and consistent action. Personally, I seriously dislike rtr's (Ready To Rebuild) as they are NEVER put together properly....Racing or bashing alike, first thing you need to do is disassemble half of the vehicle and see whats messed up.
99.999% of the time I agree. It just seems like the 22 buggies didn't have such great steering out of the box and the way to make it corner was to put the gear diff in it. I think everyone has gone to the ball diff since the suspension is more figured out now but still... This was the one exception to the rule for a while!
The track hardly ever is blue groove. It's usually pretty well-wetted and dries out as the night goes on though. It's blue groove now though! Too bad I don't get to go play on it.
