Team Losi Racing have introduced the new 22 4.0 2WD buggy. The 22 4.0 builds on the engineering of the 22 3.0 buggy by giving racers the ability to adapt the transmission and suspension configurations to any track. The 22 4.0 is based on features such as the adjustable rear shock location which can be flipped for a forward or rearward bias. This means the GenII rear shocks can be mounted in front of the rear tower and suspension arm, or in the traditional location on the back of the arm. This is a popular tuning option for high-grip surfaces that increases forward weight bias, rear end stability, and landing ability. To maximize performance for any surface, two transmission options that are included. The stand-up option from the 22 3.0 kit provides the best balance for low-to-medium grip surfaces. The laydown option moves the motor about 20mm closer to the center of the chassis. Differential height can be adjusted for soil and artificial surfaces.
