TLR has shared the latest TLR 22SCT Tech Tip! This time it is a quick and easy modification that further reduces the chances of steering tie rods popping off. For more updates and further tech tips visit the Losi Racing Blog!
TLR Blog Update:
As we continue to learn more about the 22 SCT from our consumers and team drivers, this next tech tip is used in conjunction with the ball cup modification posted earlier to improve the recent issue of the steering tie rod popping off.

This can be done using a file or a Dremel (carefully!) as shown in the pictures below.
