Installed the exotek laydown today. Everything looks great except for the battery hold down, which seems to be about 2mm too long. I can get it to close, but it requires a lot of force and tweaks everything backwards...the spacing on the holes is fine, I used the template and a battery fits just fine.

Default Laydown conversion

Is there a list somewhere of everything that is needed for a carpet laydown conversion?

We started with this setup as a base.

For the laydown you will need the following parts.

Rear body mount:



Transmission Braces

Maynard, this is basically all the stuff (plus the exotek laydown set) to do a laydown. You could probably do it without the exotek body mounts but they are nice to have.

I have done it without the brace and use the body mounts. The body mounts also allow you to move the shocks to the front if you so choose.

I run the exotek mounts on mine and do not use the upper trans brace. I also ran stand up and still only used the exotek mounts.

Thanks everyone! Has anyone ran the laydown conversion and the standup on carpet? If so, which one is preferred? The season doesn't start for about another month and I would like to have a descent base setup ready when it starts. I have not driven anything other than a Slash, on carpet, in the past. Eventually, I will try out both transmissions, but was just curious which one people recommended to start with.

Has any one tried a carpet setup like the 22 4.0 using front high roll center block, 3.5mm rear hubs, a laydown tranny, and shocks in the front of the arm(sway bars are a given). My track switched from clay to carpet and I have my 2wd buggy and 4wd buggy carpet ready and now the SC is next. I think all the changes I mentioned would make for hooked up SC truck. I really like the changes on the 2wd buggy.

Just got a new set of arms and they now have shock mount holes on both sides for those that are interested in moving the shocks to the front of the arm. No drilling holes needed.

I got them from Horizon. All their stock now should have the updated ones as they were out before latest shipment

This has been our standard setup on the truck in the uk for astro tracks (although we modded the front block as the 22 4.0 wasn't available back then)

Works everywhere - all we ever really change these days is the springs and the tyres to suit. I even used that setup on the dirt track with laydown and it was still good to drive and finished second overall with that at the national.

So can I use the TLR 22 4.0 laydown gearbox and motor plate, along with the above parts listed, to convert my SCT 3.0 or do I have to buy the tlr (or Exotek) laydown conversion kit?

I'm going to take my SCT 3.0 apart this weekend and see if the holes and everything line up (I have a spare 4.0 laydown gearbox and laydown motor plate already), just trying to get some input on it first. I'm a little worried about how/if the rear shock tower will mount to the 4.0 laydown gearbox and also, if the rear bumper mount and body mount that go on top of the stand-up gearbox will mount.

The Exo will be the easiest to covert as it has the template for the extra water fall holes. The TLR 3.0 laydown will work but need to figure out how to make 3 new holes for that conversion. Two for the new waterfall location and one for the motor mount screw hole. I have not looked at what it would take to the 4.0 conversion however rear towers will be an issue with that.

I feel really stupid for asking this, but could someone please explain to me the purpose of the sub bumper set (tlr4171) and how it is assembled? Maybe even a picture??
