I’ve always wanted to lump short wheelbase 4 cylinder cars together into 1 class. A arm buggies should smoke 5 cars. The trophy lites could do well in real rough courses. But 5 cars for whatever reason are always faster. It would be a big fun class. But it will never happen.

Damn, TL should have worn a mask ! Red Ford what are you doing about bump steer ? What is the HP for the 2.3 ?
330 HP in the 2.3 ecoboost.

There has always been talks of how to make the TLs faster then the utvs, first off thatll never happen on certain tracks, rougher track TL advantage, smoother track UTV advantage. I can however tell you that widening the trucks was not the direction to go to be faster and with the current 2.4l shortage coming the time to explore other engine options was a must. And with the new growing pains in the TL series it seems like it's the perfect time to get these tls fitted with more hp with a new and easily available engine program from Ford. I can't wait till our truck gets done!

TL has always seemed to be under powered and “under-teched” due to the mefi rule. Not enough power to get On top of bumps that 5 cars can. The geometry of the 5 cars just works. Nimble in smooth and short enough to pop the front end in the big bumps when set up correctly

TL was only underpowered because they were built too heavy.

Lighten them up and widen them and it should contend with the 5's IMO.

But now 5's and TL's can swap in a 2.3turbo and have fun with the 3000's

Hi all
Our new a-arms and tie rod to R&P plate have correct geometry and minimum bump steer. B. R C Arrow has a point, the first attempt to widen the trucks had the wrong geometry and to get the right camber you had WAY to much thread on the rod end exposed in the top a-arm and the lower did not locate the uni-ball properly or fully wrap it making it a week link. However 110 to 150 more horsepower, the turbo low end torque and a 4 inch wider truck is a good time! Ring gear numbers are much better with the Eco-boost, 5.38 instead of 6 plus makes for a much higher top speed.

7200 is a weird class IMO.

A bit stuck between a TL/3000 and a Spec TT.

7200 is similar to 3000 in that it doesn't care where your engine is or if you are IRS/live axle.
