Low Frequency Springs for the 22 Buggy

Low Frequency Springs for the 22 Buggy

 TLR Springs
FINALLY!!! TLR needed some new springs. Their old springs were severely hurting…the kit red front springs were awful. Sure they had steering but made the car so hard to drive because of the way they would make the front end dive in off power and throw the rear around. Next spring up were the orange springs and they were just a tad too stiff. Now they have some new springs. Let’s just hope they’re much better than the old set.

Hello TLR Drivers,We are really excited to bring you  new performance upgrade parts for the 22 platform:Front Spring Set, Low Frequency (4 pair): 22/T/SCT
Rear Spring Set, Low Frequency (5 pair): 22/T/SCTThese springs have been tested for a few month by our race team with great success. The springs are made with much smaller increments between spring rates allowing for a finer tune on the setup. Rear springs are separated by only 0.06 lbs/in and fronts by only 0.12 lbs/in. The LF springs have a higher coil count than the traditional TLR Spring, which provides a lower frequency and a much less progressive feel. On the track, this translates to more overall grip around the track, and a less aggressive spring rebound which really helps the car settle after landing jumps. These springs are easily identifiable versus the traditional TLR springs as they have a black oxide coating which looks more like a matte finish compared to the black painted traditional TLR springs. They also have the color paint markings to identify the rate, but the coil count of the springs will also help to identify the rate even if the paint mark were to be remove. Lastly, the springs come in complete sets, so there is no need to track down several pairs.  The front spring kit comes with 4 pairs of springs ranging from 2.86-3.18 lbs/in and the rear spring kit comes with 5 pairs of springs ranging from 1.96-2.16 lbs/in. The front spring set rate range is likely only going to be ideal for the 22 buggy, but the rear spring range will work for all the 22 platform vehicle; 22, 22T, 22SCT. Below are images, links, and the spring rate information for both the front and rear sets.
