When short-course trucks were introduced to the world of hobby-grade RC,
they were for bashing around the yard or the local park, rubbing fenders with your buddies,
and chasing each other around whatever the terrain had to offer. Short-course trucks soon
started showing up on the racetrack, and even though their performance was not as refined
as other classes, they were still a blast. Once the short-course class became popular at
most tracks, we started seeing race-oriented companies designing trucks with racing in
mind. One company that led the charge was TLR with its invention of trucks like the 22SCT.
As with other vehicles in the TLR lineup, the SCT has been the recipient of tweaks and is
now on 3.0 status. Some of the features that you can look forward to with this truck are
a revised motor location, revised suspension geometry, HDS slipper, and other items that
improve its tunability and performance. The short-course class is one of my favorites, and I
couldn’t wait to get the 22SCT 3.0 built and on the track.
