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.
