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.

Questions?? Side cover not fitting with direct drive

Hi guys
I have fitted the new TLR direct drive to my 3.0, and have noticed now that the standard side cover over the spur/pinion no longer fits, it fouls on the spur.
Im running the 72T spur.
Has anyone else found this or have I done something wrong with fitment??

The gear cover doesn't fit? Installing the direct drive should have no impact on that part. I'd go back and double check what you did.

You don't use the red spacer when installing the direct drive.

It's the spacer I did the same thing and then double checked my work and took it out.

Frank, I'm wondering if I can run your stock nats set up with the exotek lay down conversion or is it completely different geometry than the tlr one? and if so whats a good set up for the exotek lay down transmission? I run at ocrc and coyote hobbies...any help would be appreciated, thank you.

LOL I saw this on Facebook. I haven't even ran my laydown conversion yet (tomorrow). New conversion is a conversion for the conversion! Getting hard to keep up!!

Not a new conversion. It is a optional transmissiom case that does not have the diff raised. Allows you to run a higher ride height with the correct geometry. for lower traction surfaces and should allow the car to land better due to the extra travel of the suspension
