New for the 22 Series - Aluminum Trail Inserts
Good Day Racers!
We've been working hard to improve the durability of the trail inserts for the newest 22 spindles. These spindles have been included on the 22 4.0, 22SCT 3.0, 22T 3.0, 22T 4.0 and the 22 4.0 SR, and have adjustable trail (2mm-4mm) and different ackermann inserts for adjustable ackermann feel as well.
On occassion, we've seen the outer bearings pop through the inner lip of outside trail insert, particularly on impacts that hit the outside of the axle directly. We have since released improved inserts and spindles, both of which help increase the durability of the molded parts - those are available now. We also worked on Aluminum versions of the trail inserts in parallel to give the ultimate option for durability.
Available now are:
- TLR334048, Spindle Insert Set, Aluminum, 3mm Trail: All 22
- TLR334049, Spindle Insert Set, Aluminum, 2/4mm Trail: All 22
Each of these includes two machined aluminum trail inserts per package, as the aluminum inserts are only needed for the outer bearings on the left and right spindles. We recommend continuing to use the molded composite inserts for the inner bearings on each spindle.
