- Team Losi Racing 22SCT - Steering Rack Modification -
By Mike Mellin
As we continue to learn more about the 22 SCT from our consumers and team drivers, this next tech tip is used in conjunction with the ball cup modification posted earlier to improve the recent issue of the steering tie rod popping off. We are currently in the process of updating the steering rack, but in the meantime this slight modification can be quickly accomplished in a few minutes. All you need to do is chamfer the outside edges of the steering rack where the ball studs (left & right) are installed to allow the steering tie rods to reach maximum angle without interfering with the steering rack. This can be done using a file or a Dremel (carefully!) as shown in the pictures below.
