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.

Also, question for the thread:

my top shaft has play going in and out that is causing a tiny bit of 'noise' in the drivetrain. Solutions? Fix? Normal?
I had some play in my top shaft and shimmed it out. I have been doing this for a while now, and used to shim the top shafts on my AE cars as well. I use Yokomo and Calandra Racing Products shims. I shim just enough to take most of the play out while allowing for free movement once the transmission case halves are fully screwed together.

I run this same gearing and it's right there except with an R1wurks motor.

What do you think of that motor, and have you done any dyno tuning?? Thinking of picking one up.

All of people's question I'm sure will be answered tomorrow. Based on prior releases I would imagine TLR will be doing a Facebook live feed explaining everything new. Once again, I'm sure TLR has outdone themselves. Can't wait!
