I own 2 of these, but they are the rear motor older version. I'm glad TLR made it to a mid-motor. I plan on updating and getting a couple of these Newer ones

He previously had a trinity monster max 13.5 so when I geared it, I matched his gearing. I think the spur is a 76 and the pinion was a 25. I did a full race and motor was 325 degrees F. Yes you read that correctly. Luckily, it somehow still seemed to work fine. So I dropped the pinion tooth to a 21t. After two minutes on the track, it was at 200 degrees F. I have no idea what to do gearing wise. I've been told to make sure no bearings or drivetrain parts are locked up or spinning rough causing extra work. I haven't done that yet but will try to soon. I sure could use some help on ideas/theories and gearing suggestions. Thanks in advance
just curious, have you talked to the former owner? Being a track owner he should be willing to help.

Will the new SHDS slipper from 5.0 buggy fit into the SCT?

I have the laydown transmission in mine and installed the SHDS slipper.. I needed to use 5.0 layshaft. I'm fairly certain it will still also work if you have the original stand up transmission as long at the layshaft has the same number of teeth in it.

Yes, it will work. You can only fit an 82T spur with the laydown transmission, but the 84T will fit stand up.

Has anybody tried the G2 diff in the sct for offroad dirt? going to try 2000 and 5000 even though it comes with 7000 I figure that is for carpet and buggy.

Also, if you go the 4.0 route, you'll be able to buy all of the spare parts, and the larger idler is more durable as well as being able to mount shocks in front.

Parts needed to convert an SCT 3.0 to laydown:
TLR234093
TLR234092
TLR233024
TLR233014
TLR232068
TLR231066
TLR232069
TLR232067
EXO1752
Frank, I know you posted this over a year ago, but I'm just now looking into getting a 2WD SCT, and the 22SCT 3.0 w/ laydown conversion is at the top of my list (since you recently mentioned the 22SCT 4.0 is a long way from being released). Since some of these parts are based off the 22-4, and the 22 5.0 has since been released, might you suggest any changes (ie. shock body, shock shaft, etc) to the "laydown conversion" parts list you listed a year ago...or, does the parts list remain exactly the same? Also, as some have mentioned needing to drill new holes in the chassis, is there a template for where said holes need to be drilled? Needless to say, I'm not very good where power tools are concerned, and would need to have someone else drill the holes. Lastly, in regards to mounting the rear shocks in front of the tower, what, if anything, needs to be done to accomplish this? Any help/assistance that can be provided will be greatly appreciated. The SCT would be intended for racing on a somewhat technical, indoor, clay track, thus the reason for wanting to go with a laydown transmission, as opposed to the stock standup.

Pardon the somewhat-long post, but I am providing info, as well as inquiring info. For those interested in doing the laydown conversion, I came across a video on YouTube, by Vertical Extent RC, and there is a downloadable template, which not only shows where to drill the holes, but also includes a parts list, as well as step-by-step instructions. I did, however, notice some discrepancies in the two parts lists (ie. Frank's, and Vertical Extent's). Here are the two lists, side-by-side:

EXO1752 EXO1752 Aluminum Body Mount Set
TLR232067 TLR232067 3-Gear Laydown Gear Case Set
TLR232068 TLR232068 3-Gear Laydown Motor Plate
TLR231066 TLR231066 Laydown Chassis Brace
TLR234093 TLR234093 Laydown Rear Shock Tower
TLR 234092 TLR332070
TLR233024 TLR233002
TLR233014
TLR232069

As can be seen, the first five parts are the same, but the remaining parts differ. With Frank's list, there is the rear arm set (TLR234092), the 55mm shock shafts (TLR 233024), the shock bodies (TLR 233014), and the Laydown Idler Gear & Shaft (TLR232069). With the list from Vertical Extent, the different parts consist of the Aluminum Laydown Idler Gear & Shaft (TLR332070), and the 50mm shock shafts. It appears that, instead of replacing the rear shock bodies & shafts, Vertical Extent has chosen to stick with the stock shock bodies, and only replace the shock shafts, but with shorter shafts that those included on Frank's list. Additionally, Vertical Extent has opted to go with the aluminum idler gear, as opposed to the plastic idler gear listed in Frank's list. Before I continue, is a clay track environment, is there any advantages/disadvantages in the plastic vs aluminum idler gear? The only other difference I notice is that Vertical Extent has elected to stick with the stock rear arms, while Frank's list includes the Stiffezel rear arms. Again, in relation to racing on a merdium-to-high grip indoor clay track, what are the advantages/disadvantages of using the stock rear arms vs the Stiffezel rear arms?

I'd prefer to not order parts bit-by-bit...if I'm going to go the 22SCT route, with laydown conversion, I'd rather get all my parts ordered together (my AMain cart has everything listed above, plus the 22SCT 3.0 & electronics), so I'm just waiting for 'assistance' before I delete the "unnecessary" parts, and place the order. Thoughts?

I would run the aluminum idler, SCTs are tough on idler gears.
Regarding the arms, the stifzel arms should already have the holes in the front if you want to mount the shocks on the front. But if you stick with your stock arms you can always just drill the holes to mount the shocks forward.

I agree. I even lost a tooth on a aluminum idle gear..

Anybody running the brass weight parts in stock form on indoor clay?..

Anybody trying to run 5.0 steering parts on their SCT with either the stock stand up rear or 4.0 lay down conversion?

Yes 5.0 steering rack and laydown much better on the truck.

We run the 5.0 steering rack on the RCLYFE 22SCT 3.0 we run the #6 steering arm. We use the stock 22 aluminum steering horn, and that is the reason for the #6 arm. the 5.0 long servo horn is very hard to get to fit without making the top plate more prone to breaking. We also run a .5mm ball stud shim on the top of the rack post to help keep the rack from rubbing the top plate. You will need to clearance the top plate around the rack and for the link to move freely. The 5.0 Rack was an amazing improvement and made the truck much easier to drive. You will also need 2 shorter 4.0 turnbuckles and the 5.0 Ball cups for the 5.0 rack. You do not want to use the SCT ball cups you will not get full steering.

Here is some running video of the truck. is is super amazing to drive. Has to be the best handing SCT I have ever driven.

More post to come on the RCLYFE 22SCT

Give us a link if you like what you see.
