The final job was to trim and paint the bodyshell.
(Although I was warned by some racing buddies.)
With a pair of Intellect 5400mah lipos fitted there is no way the supplied bodyshell would fit properly.
Even with low profile polymax type connectors fitted to the power leads the cells foul the bodyshell.
Very annoying but a good excuse to buy one of the uber cool FTW 'vane' forward cab bodyshells, under which I know everything will fit!
The paint turned out pretty good.
I can't decide what to think about the 22 and should try to reserve judgement until I've run it, my initial feelings following the build are not, however, entirely positive.
If Losi were trying to make a truly versatile car they should have made the side pods a little wider, this would allow more options for cells and and electrics.
It seems to me that TLR have taken a cracking rear motor car and kind of cobbled together a mid motor version.
