Cub86 posted the question: Hi. I'm struggling to understand the lay down situation. I run on high bite damp smooth clay and think the conversation would help on my surface but from what I'm reading I need to buy the lay down kit tlr338004. And the dirt gear case tlr332063. But do I really need both from what I've read the dirt case is 1-2mm higher anyway and u don't use the +3mm hubs or the front pivot hrc or Hrc mod. So is the dirt lay down kit tlr332063 is all that's needed to get me a lay down set up that's suited for clay With the components and car I already have. And if I only get the dirt case is there any problems that will need to be addressed IE.. bone plunge . I do know I'll need 1mm spacers on the waterfall to clear the battery. Thanks guys really trying to get my head around this.

Franks response:
Laydown Conversion will work great by itself. You run the aluminum +3mm hubs, the diff is +3.5mm, and you run the HRC front setup. Just follow a setup sheet from tlracing.com (Frank Root).

Dirt Tranny has the diff at the same height as the standard tranny case, and works with the standard plastic hubs. Both are +/- 0mm from stock. When you run this, no need to run the HRC front mod either.

I've found the stock laydown conversion parts to work great for most tracks. The dirt tranny is a great tuning option, but definitely not 'required'.

Something I made, pretty basic. Just to give people an idea.

The weight balance is pretty impressive; cant see why this wouldnt work well on most tracks. Be interesting to see how it stacks up to the rest of the contenders out there.

I honestly feel like it is the best two wheel car made. The car is awesome out of the box just imagine how good it will be after a few months of everyone working with it bouncing ideas back and forth.

Will the aluminum servo mounts work from the 2.0 buggy? Or is that area different as well?

In the video Frank said it had new servo mounts.

I was impressed with how Dustin's car looked in the final A this past weekend. I can't wait to get my hands on one to do a build and review of it for RC Tech readers.

If I missed it, sorry, but I haven't seen anything about availability of new spare parts for the 3.0 kit... Since so much of the buggy is "all new", parts will be absolutely vital for those not "connected" to TLR...?

Kits and parts usually arrive at the same time so shops should be getting parts with the kits so parts should not be too big an issue.

What length of sensor wire did you use on your 3.0?

Yep I have some parts already on the way.
Its my first TLR in a few years and even the 1.0 I had no issues with parts or any other new released TLR I had.

Start the build on mine tonight and I had forgotten how TLR plastic was to Kyosho.
Enjoying the build though

The servo mounts are new and different, the 1.0/2.0 mounts will not work, and we will be making aluminum versions soon.

We will not ship a car without parts available. They will ship within 1-2 days of the kits themselves (since the kits get checking in first).

200mm, but I think that you might be able to get away with 175mm depending on how you mount the ESC.

Due to logistical challenges, the cars have shipping in Australia already.

I checked and it came out to about $375 shipped, but I couldn't figure out how long it would actually take to reach the states...that and I'm not able to race anytime soon so....I can wait.
