We have so many Ti22 bodies to choose from that it boggles the mind, but I want one more variation or I want to find one I don't know about. We have wide-nosed, narrow nosed, and short narrow-nosed.

 

The wide-nosed bodies I know of have shorter noses than the narrow-nosed versions. I want a wide nose version with more length in the front for the guide flag like the narrow-nosed ones have.

 

If anyone makes a wide-nosed long version, I would like to hear about it. I hope it is IRRA legal.

The DDS wide nose is longer than all of the other ones available, but I can’t say the nose is longer. It might be worth a look.

Betta makes a wide nose Ti22.  I've tried it a couple times and works decent but still not as good as the VFC.

A motor is only as fast as the chassis it's in.

The Betta is a beautiful body, but it isn’t any longer than a Parma wide nose. I use them on slower tracks .

I think OS476 is the longest wide nose Ti22 body.
Maybe a good deal with driver interior included :D

We are working with Betta to submit their 1969 Ti22 to the IRRA Board and make it available at retail in painted and unpainted versions when approved.

When there is more to share, we will share it.

 

Note: Betta also has a 1970 Ti22 which is different but due to being more recent vintage, is probably not legal.


That's thirty minutes away. I'll be there in ten.

The Betta Ti22 has been legal for IRRA use for several years, specifically since April of 2021.

They have two in their line, which one was approved? I looked at the April 2021 post and it doesn't give a part number.

Not the 1970 version because it’s too new. Ian only makes one that falls within IRRA parameters.If you had actually spoken with him I am sure he would have pointed out that it’s already approved.

Ian and I e-mail at least once a month, it works out better for us due to the time differences.

I had given him the list of what I planned to submit to IRRA in a recent e-mail and he only wished me luck; nothing was said about anything on the list already being approved.

 

BTW- are there any plans to update the approved body list on the IRRA website?
