The beauty of stock racing (RC or full size) is that it eliminates horsepower wars. You can’t just
strap in a hotter motor; everyone is on a level playing field—when it comes to power, at least. Racing is
all about finding an edge, the “unfair advantage” that Mark Donohue made famous (Google him). And so,
if you can’t add power, the next best thing is to reduce weight. And that’s exactly what stock racers do,
by installing components made out of lighter (and, thus, more expensive) components and by milling or
machining everything else to remove precious grams. Building a competitive stock racer can quickly drain
your wallet, which makes TLR’s new SPEC-Racer (SR, for short) version of the 22 3.0 especially welcome.
Instead of throwing away a bunch of perfectly good parts for lighter bits, the SR is equipped with the trick
stuff straight from the factory. That includes a milled chassis, lightweight drivetrain parts, and a direct-drive gearbox—everything you need to win when outpowering your competition isn’t an option.
