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.

Default TLR 22 3.0 Race Kit Thread!

Hey Guys,

I just wanted to grab the first post here so I can update with info as it becomes available. More info to come shortly, probably tomorrow AM.

We do have one of our long videos coming first thing in the morning that will address the new car in full detail, so keep your eyes peeled for that!

Link to the new car page - http://www.tlracing.com/Products/Def...6#prodOverview

Link to all new parts announced (replacement parts and optional parts) - http://www.tlracing.com/Search/Defau...=LatestRelease

Manual file, to check out the details - http://www.tlracing.com/ProdInfo/Fil...nual-MULTI.pdf

Super Video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HkthhHMhebk

Build Photos - https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...6594021&type=3

Converting from a 2.0 - People keep asking for a conversion list to turn their 22 2.0's into 22 3.0's. This list covers all of the mandatory parts, but assumes the racer will already have the bell cranks kit and skips on the new front king pins and axles.
IMO - At $255, I've definiely pay the extra $75 to get a fully new car with brand new diff/CVA/slipper assemblies, bearings, plastics, ball cups, turnbuckles full hardware, etc. Just my $.02











































Thanks!
Frank

Love my B5M but this fixed all the issues keeping me from.trging a 22 2.0 now that it's so adjustable without buying extra stuff.

Tempting...

I'm completely new to the hobby, but I just know that I want it. Perhaps the V3 could be a great one for the mod class? Am wondering how common it is for people to have both.

Thanks Kyle, fantastic - that's awesome! Yep just signed up there just over a month ago and have visited the track a couple of times. The RTR brushed HSP isn't quite up to the task of driving that track, so that's why the v2 is underways. Spending a bit of time in VRC Pro meanwhile.

pre-order is up on Horizon!! Just preordered the kit, chassis sheets and the alloy NORMAL nut style front axles.
Hope "early Dec" is accurate because this car looks amazing. More traditional 3 gear MM style chassis but it looks like it flat out works. Also LOVING bringing back VLA, at least on the front.

Frank, is the rear of the body held on with button head screws at it appears to my eyes or am i seeing things?

Frank, nice job with the latest version. Looks really good.

Will it be possible to convert my 2.0 to the 3.0, or will it cost so much that it would be better to buy new? Mostly interested in the 3 gear tranny.

I always wondered why the insert method was not used on the rear assembly. Nice to see incorporated now.

The rear adjustable camber block and VLA front arms are pretty cool.

I see that the rear of the chassis is different. I'm guessing the new transmissions won't bolt up to the older chassis?

Not many parts will interchange. Which some will like some won't. New transmission case and design will not bolt in 2.0 from looks of it.
