In the pursuit of excellence, little details all add up to considerable differences as any competitor can testify. Paying attention to those details will have profound effects on the end result, leaving you faster and leaving your competitors further behind in your wake. Just because the detail isn’t immediately obvious doesn’t necessary mean it’s gone untouched or unnoticed. Look again and the difference becomes obvious – as does the improvement in lap times, consistency and overall performance.
The Team Losi Racing Twenty Two 2.0 is testament to a philosophy that demands perfection in every detail and whilst, to the casual onlooker, it may look largely unchanged from it’s ground-breaking innovative predecessor, only the fool-hardy would dismiss the attention to detail that’s gone into honing and further perfecting the Twenty Two 2WD buggy platform.
Its predecessor proved to be a devastatingly fast chassis and one that would reward the driver with incredible corner speed and near-indestructible durability. In many aspects, it redefined and set the new norm for what a 1:10 Electric 2WD Off Road Racing buggy needed to be. It was the first commercially available buggy that could be built, out of the box, as either a traditional 3-gear rear-motor buggy with the motor slung behind the rear axle line or as a modern, 4-Gear mid-motor buggy where the motor is mounted in front of the axle line so that the mass is more equally distributed and contained within the wheelbase. And it was the first to prove the now-current design ethos of the longer wheelbase for enhancing handling and consistent power delivery.
The Twenty Two 2.0 builds upon the awesome reputation of the original, adding popular hop-up options as standard and incorporating several small but significant geometry changes that all contribute towards a less aggressive and easier driving experience – something that will reward many racers at all levels through increased consistency and improved wheel-to-wheel raceability. It can still be built as either a rear motor or a mid motor buggy out of the one box but it now adds popular team hop-ups, incorporates several small detail running changes and throws in a host of detail geometry changes and revisions that combine to make the Twenty Two 2.0 easier and faster to drive for longer.
