This is the Team Losi Racing 22 3.0 Mid Motor 1/10 Scale 2WD Electric Buggy Kit. The evolution of the 22 platform continues with the 22 3.0 buggy. Changes include a wider chassis, updated motor location and a revised suspension. The kit also includes the option parts necessary to build a pro-level vehicle, right out of the box.

In-Depth Features: 

  • 3-Gear Transmission with Revised Motor Location: The motor location is 12mm closer to the diff gear than on the 2.0. This increases the rear weight bias, providing better rear grip on exit, more entry steering and a buggy that, overall, is easier to drive. The updated 3-gear transmission decreases chassis roll, greatly improving the vehicle's stability, consistency and braking. A 4-gear transmission is available separately for lower-grip tracks and different driving styles.
  • No-Compromise, Mid-Motor Design: Focusing solely on a mid-motor design eliminated the weight and engineering compromises inherent in a chassis with two mounting options.
  • Transverse Battery Mounting: The wider, 2.5mm aluminum chassis and molded mud guards include the option to mount saddle and shorty Li-Po packs across the chassis. Shorty Li-Po packs can also be mounted fore to aft. This allows for more weight bias tuning front to rear and wider placement of battery weight. The result is a more stable buggy without an increase in static weight.
  • Option Parts Included: Many of the parts included with this kit are popular upgrades that provide everything needed to build a pro-level buggy right out of the box. This includes milled, 7075-T6 aluminum parts like the top shaft, adjustable rear pivot mounts, motor plate, rear camber block, shock bleeder caps and ball stud spacers throughout. Machined shock pistons and bushings, Ti-CN coated shock shafts and hinge pins, C3 spec hub bearings, low frequency springs and the heavy duty slipper system are also included.
  • Revised Front Suspension Geometry: Updated front caster blocks and suspension arms allow for variable length arm adjustment. This makes it possible to run with short or long front-arm geometry. This, together with the bell crank steering system, provides the same amazing steering 22™ drivers have come to love, but with a more consistent feel between different surfaces. It all adds up to a buggy with neutral balance that requires less tuning from track to track to maximize performance.
  • Revised Rear Suspension Geometry: The rear pivot is 2mm wider, giving the buggy significantly more grip and stability without losing any corner speed. The rear arm has also been revised with updated shock mount locations and a slightly reduced gull wing effect. This, paired with the popular '0 hole' modification that is now designed into the rear shock tower, optimizes the jumping, landing and chassis roll dynamics of the rear end for the higher rear-weight bias.
  • Lightweight 7075-T6 Aluminum Chassis: This chassis is the same length as the optional 2.5mm chassis for the 2.0 version. It features strategically milled pockets that reduce weight without compromising strength.
  • Adjustable Rear Toe and Anti-Squat: The rear pivots now accept adjustable inserts that allow you to make quick toe and anti-squat adjustments without having to buy additional parts. Both adjustments are made in 0.5 degree increments. Toe adjustments range from 2.5 to 4.0 degrees. Anti-squat adjustments range from 0.0 to 3.0 degrees.
  • Gen II 12mm Big Bore Shocks: The updated standard for performance and maintenance, these shocks feature:
    • X-Ring Seals
    • Machined shock bushings
    • Machined 2×1.5 and 2×1.6mm pistons
    • TiCN-coated shock shafts
    • Aluminum bleeder screw caps
    • Threaded hard anodized shock bodies
    • Low frequency springs
    • Spring cups that snap onto the shock shafts
  • Updated Ball Differential: The 22 3.0 ball differential delivers super-smooth, long lasting performance thanks to features like:
    • Flattened 2nd operation outdrives
    • Revised thrust washers
    • Tungsten carbide diff and thrust balls
    • One-piece nut
    • Self-centering diff gear
  • HDS Slipper: Heavy Duty Slipper (HDS) pads and 78T HDS spur gears, along with grooved and tapered slipper plates, are included. They all work together to improve slipper consistency and durability.


  • Mid-motor design
  • Revised motor location 12mm closer to diff gear
  • 3-Gear transmission (4-gear available separately)
  • Transverse battery mounting option
  • Optional parts included
  • Revised front and rear suspension geometry

Team Losi Racing 22 3.0 Mid Motor 1/10 2WD Electric Buggy Kit
I'm very impressed with this kit. I've always been a TLR driver but I've often struggled in the buggy class, it's always been difficult for me to drive fast consistently. I've traditionally been the "truck guy" at my track and have always felt most comfortable in stadium truck. I've also always been the "rear motor" guy in a crowd of mid-motored everything. I decided to try out the 22 3.0 kit with the expectation that it would be the best 22 buggy I could drive, motor placement aside. I was definitely hesitant but optimistic.

The kit went together incredibly well. All the parts were there including extra tuning parts and I was able to transfer over some of my aluminum parts from my "old" 22 buggy. It went together very quickly for me, probably about 2.5 hours, minus electronic hookups/soldering. The plastics are high-quality and the buggy feels very durable. Some of my ballcups were extremely tight but they freed up after a few batteries on the track. The design is more simple and straightforward than the previous revisions with fewer parts. There is a lot of adjustability built into the kit and a good amount of room to mount electronics, which I really appreciated since I'm running a "big" Novak Pulse in mine. I had room for the ESC and a standard-size Spektrum receiver with a tiny amount of room left over to wrap up excess wires.

I built mine with an 8.5 mod motor and took it out for some practice. It took me about 20 minutes to get accustomed to the way the car drove and handled but I got the hang of it pretty quickly and started shaving my lap times down half-a-second at a time. I really like this thing. It's handled better out of the box better than my old 22 ever did with years of setup tweaking. With the right tires and a little tiny bit of setup tweaking and plenty of practice I'm confident that I can get it as fast and consistent as my 22T/SCT. Now I'm contemplating moving my stadium and short course to mid-motor...

I cannot say enough good about this buggy. It went together easily, parts seem durable and the stock set up is near spot on for my local track. It takes a little extra work to get to the differential, but no big deal. I am by no means a top shelf driver, but this thing makes me look better than I am. I have run pack after pack through this car and its never missed a beat. Inasmuch as the popular buggies are very similar, I cannot imagine running any one other than the Losi. I have had a JRX2, JRXT, JRX Pro, XXX...the list goes on. As far as I am concerned Losi has always made a quality product, and this one is no different. If you are in the market, then buy with confidence. You will not be disappointed. I just love the fact that I can be competitive with the AE guys at my local track, and at least my car is not holding me back.

My set up: Spektrum DX4C, Hobbywing XR10, Hobbywing 10.5 (good, inexpensive combo), Savox 1257TG, Venom and SMC shorties and Panther Switch 2.0/Bobcat tires.

Team Losi Racing 22 3.0 Mid Motor 1/10 2WD Electric Buggy Kit
This was my first kit build, the instructions were probably a 7 out of 10, but if you have built things before (i.e. engines, Ikea furniture, Legos), you should be fine. Take your time and take your time.

Car drove ok at first, but fortunately I live 10 minutes from a track frequented by TLR sponsored guys and very friendly, knowledgable staff and racers. They helped me set up the car and it's on rails now.

The 30wt oil that came with mine was not good for my track, made some changes, tweaked some settings and I was making the car do things I couldn't before. Do homework as you build over what works and try things out for the first few runs/days.

The car is competitive, it's quality and you can't go wrong, I lucked out with the guys locally, but you can read up on set ups, and get set up tools to do it right!

Overall, this is a great car, I am a one track hero, so now that the car is set up, I do very little tweaking. Broke a couple of parts, but it's mostly due to me trying to make it into an olympic gymnast at times and making it do cart wheels. User error, car is solid.

Team Losi Racing 22 3.0 Mid Motor 1/10 2WD Electric Buggy Kit
I am mostly running on an outdoor high-bite astroturf track with a Yokomo YZ-2 and bought the 22 3.0 locally as a rain car before the YZ-2 DT was released. It is my first TLR kit and for sure I'd recommend it to others. Apart from the steering parts, plastics felt good and I did not have any issues with the rear hexes so far. It does exactly what I expected it to do and it performs great on a wet track. In the dry, it is better than my B5M has ever been, but as you'd expect it cannot keep up with the laydown transmission breed of cars with the standard gearbox. Parts quality, finish etc. IMHO is better than the AE T5M and B5M, but not as good as the Yokomo YZ or Kyosho 6 series. My biggest dislike is the rear wing mount, which uses body clips instead of screws, which tend to come loose after landing on the roof. With a bit of spare Lexan under the wing and some smaller clips e.g. by VBC Racing, this issue has become less of a problem, though. Although I'd rate the Yokomo cars' value for money better, this is a really nice car and great to work on. Can't wait to compare it to the AE B6!

Team Losi Racing 22 3.0 Mid Motor 1/10 2WD Electric Buggy Kit
Best 2wd buggy on the market! I've been running AE cars for years even the B5M. I feel that Losi knocked it out of the park with this car, it is basically a entirely new car. They did their homework and it has paid off.

Team Losi Racing 22 3.0 Mid Motor 1/10 2WD Electric Buggy Kit
I purchased this buggy from my local hobby shop and I have been very impressed with it. The build went super smooth and I love the new chassis layout. Even running a full size servo there is still plenty of room to mount an ESC and a receiver. The quality of the parts in the kit are excellent the new body gives the car a more substantial and aggressive appearance. On the track it has been a blast to drive; tons of steering and amazing forward bite with the stock settings. I have run this car on high grip astroturf with a couple TLR upgrades (Brass Front Pivot and Aluminum Front Camber Block) and so far I love it. I am very happy with the new 22 3.0 and would recommend to anyone.

I'm currently building the 3.0 and I've got to say it is a bit disappointing. The 2.0 has better parts included than the 3.0. TLR includes plastic rear hexes instead of aluminum as with the 2.0. The front hexes are metal, but i can't get a Kyosho offset wheel to fit. It should fit--the hexes are nearly identical. After building both, I would recommend buying a RB6 over this kit. It is easy to convert the RB6 chassis to run transverse short packs. This kit just has too much plastic for the cost. Dollar for dollar, the B5M light is a better deal--even if you choose to purchase the championship package upgrade.
