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.

If your running the 67mm drive shafts, do you still add the axel spacer. If so, what's the effect.

No, you do not run the spacer.

OK, I saw some setups that said they were running the axel spacer. Just didn't know if they were also running the 67mm drive shafts.

my 2 lads run the olders 22 cars, so rather than buy a load of new wheels just for my 22 3.0, is there a way to convert it back to the older front hub types, if so, what parts would i need?

All you need is the front axles from a 22 1.0 or 2.0 and you are all set.

Nope, I do this on my 3.0 so I could use the fronts off my old 2.0.

Saw your car on the track at OCRC the other night. Looks great!

I'm going to order this car in March I just hope their isn't a 4.0 on the horizon.
I believe the 3.0 just came out so I hope it isn't replaced anytime soon.

Don't worry. Even if a new car did get released. Which I highly doubt it will for some time. This car is such a huge jump in performance over the 2.0.

Couple questions.

Why is the Direct Drive System (DDS) only supposed to be used on 17.5 motors?
*Note – Use only for 17.5T Spec Motors. This is not designed to work with 13.5T or modified motors

In the manual is states that the 13.5 motor should have a gearing of 70/25, but there is no 70T Spur for the Heavy Duty Slipper (HDS) or 3.0 DDS?

I found this part number [ TLR3978 ] for a 70T DDS but that is for the 2.0 and doesn't fit the 3.0 DDS.

Seems I'm either missing something or there is a discrepancy.

Everything depends on what you are trying to accomplish. I know guys that run direct drive with 13.5 on carpet. Then there are guys like me who have never run direct drive. And I use the 70t spur for the 22 2.0 that uses the old style slipper pads.

I'm not sure if that is for one pad, or if there are two in the package. Seems pricy for just one.
