He can run a shorty long ways. Then you can add weight in front or behind it if you want the weight of a stick pack.

If you want the shorty sideways, that takes some work or the Exotek chassis.

nice find Tyler, do you have that installed in your current rig?

I did a quick search on FB and found this pic here which shows the slightly more expensive $50 kit option with the waterfall/strap parts:

*** I find it ironic how they boasted in the product specs that you can wire under the battery to lower the center of gravity, yet their product sample pic shows the wiring above the pack and then they leave it ambiguous if the tray is designed for a square pack or how the shorty fits without the extra waterfall parts?

I don't but I am assuming you don't need the $50 kit, it may just make it a bit cleaner.

Exotek used to make a little tray for the ESC so when used in conjunction with their battery retention setup you could secure a shorty in the long way, without having to mount the ESC to the waterfall.

If by chance you happen to find one of these setups it may be worth a look.

On another topic:

Too bad there's no news on the 3.0. It's interesting that TLR would stop production on the T/SCT without at least teasing something on their successors. Is this to sell the remaining inventory so resellers aren't stuck with the 'old' version which us fickle racers wouldn't be nearly as interested in?

from what ove seen in the past with a few companies is usually after the disco a kit, its around 6 months when the next one drops, so im guessing between march & may, Unless there is a Major 1/10 race that they decide to debut early

3% is a HUGE difference in weight bias. From the lowest bite dirt to the highest bit astro, you are still within 10%.

I would not recommend these part. Abandoning so much of the mud guards as design will certainly weakening the bracing for the chassis and could lead to failures.

Yeah, I was kinda wondering how much of a difference it will be (on the track), kinda bummed most setup sheets don't show the weight bias because I think that tells more about a setup than anything else in finding the perfect balance for corner speed. That's why I'm gonna try slicks up front and play with some different strengths of sauce to see if I can get in the right ball park before having to move some weight around. I might have to lower the rear ride height a pinch maybe. We go through a set of tires once per race day and I'd like to get to a point where I only have to buy 1 pair of tires for the rear, then move the balded rear tires to the front and save some cash.

I also would like to clarify your setup for OCRC is still at 28mm ride height?
I'm seeing some other setups as low as 18mm for indoor clay and that's a significant difference!

There is a 3-gear that came with the EXO conversion, is that considered the "dirt laydown" and could/would I simply buy the stand up 3.0 gear box and/or is there a post somewhere that explains the options on how to get the optimal gear box for clay?

I think the stand up gear box might let me move the battery back a pinch to make it easier to hit my desired 38/62 weight bias without having to jack with a lower ride height in the rear.

Thanks in advance

Bill the 3 Gear you got is still a stand up transmission, there isn't a laydown conversion for truck available yet.
