Factory RC’s 22-4 shorty solution

TLR Battery Stop Factory RC

It’s no secret that converting the TLR 22-4 to a shorty battery pack is the ‘hot setup’ used by all the team drivers. The problem is finding a solid way to keep that shorty pack in place and secure. Factory RC has the answer to shorty pack racer prayers with their all-new TLR 22-4 Carbon Fiber Shorty Brace with adjustable battery stop block. This brace replaces the stock plastic battery retainer bracket and allows you to use the adjustable battery stop instead of foam blocks.  Stop sticking foam blocks to your battery, limiting them to a certain car. This brace allows you to run the battery shifted forward or rearward. Simply install the battery stop on eithe side, and adjust to your packs length to remove any slack. Fitment is snug and prevents the battery froms shifting. Battery brace is made from 3mm Quasi Carbon Fiber and your choice of Heavy Duty Carbon Steel screws or Titanium Screws.
