Does anyone know if there is a shim In the kit that allows you to move the rear tower back and run the shocks on the back of the tower when using the laydown transmission? I know Tebo is running his shocks on the rear of the tower with the laydown on clay, but I did not see the option in the manual. I Thought maybe someone in here had some insight.

Looks like you could run the other bulkhead with the laydown to get the shocks to the rear of the arms.

Which other bulkhead? Did I miss something in the manual?

There's 2 rear bulkheads. New style and old style. Looks like the new laydown transmission will key into the old style bulkhead with shocks out back.

The manual (pg. 33) has the shocks mounted to the rear in the 4 gear mid and RM setups, you will be able to choose front or back. Shim your shocks so they are at a 90' angle to the arms and you should be good, as per Tebo.

I just ordered a couple of the new 3 gear gear box sets and the reverse gear covers, should be lots of fun when they get here. Thanks for the heads up Toby.

Yup, UM740...

You will need it to run LD or 3 gear mid.

After studying the manual and my spare chassis, this looks to be the only difference in the two chassis'. Just drill out those two holes for the front of the diff case and your ready for a laydown tranny.

Also looks like the laydown uses the same UM740 bulkhead as the 3 gear.

Are these parts available yet? Also, does the laydown use the same ball diff gear, idler and top shaft as the other diffs? Same as the RB6 diff internals?

Yup, add 2 holes to the chassis, the LD gear box, 40t idler gear, LD motor plate and LD gear cover. They are available. The internals are the same except for the 40t.

Actually, you prolly need to enlarge the two holes (for mounting the battery cradle) in the regular rb6 chassis. In the rb6.6, they are used to mount the waterfall in the laydown gearbox position. However, the waterfall holes are just very slightly wider (or narrower... I can't remember) then the battery cradle holes.
Personally, I don't mind drilling new holes, I don't mind enlarging holes, but countersinking an enlarged hole is annoyingly difficult without a mill and a setting plate.

And of Coz, drill the two holes for the laydown gearbox itself.

Are folks drilling because the chassis isn't available?

When will the chassis be available?

I'm sure it's available, that's just a significant added cost to upgrading to a laydown with your existing RB6
