  3. Transmission cases are precision machined from high quality delrin for perfect fit and finish

  4. Lightweight carbon-fiber battery strap with aluminum mount

  5. Aluminum idler gear for ultimate reliability

  6. Milled motor plate and aluminum motor plate to chassis brace included

  7. A modified 22 3.0 body designed to fit the laydown is pulled from 0.5mm lexan for ultra low weight, and lowering the center of gravity

  8. Two TLR Front Wings are included, for increased front grip

  9. A 25g brass plate is also included, and fits under the battery pack to increase vehicle weight

  10. All hardware and instructions included, no additional parts, or part modifications necessary

As the TLR Race Team continues to push the envelope of performance for the 22 3.0, they have found that a laydown transmission moving the motor forward greatly improves corner speed and consistently on higher grip tracks. With carpet and Astro-turf tracks growing in popularity, and some US lay tracks running slicks, the need for forward bite is not as critical and corner speed becomes the most sought after performance trait. Moving the motor considerably forward, the weight bias is around 42% front and 58% rear, giving the car more corner speed and stability. Also, since the ride heights run on these surfaces is usually under 20mm, to improve the roll center and bone plunge in the rear the diff is raised 3.5mm and the axle is raised in the hubs by 3.0mm. These changes allow for proper bone angle, bone plunge and roll center in the rear at these lower ride heights. These are the parts used by the TLR Race Team at the 2015 IFMAR World Championships. Designed as a complete conversion kit, no additional parts or modifications are needed to convert to your 22 3.0!

Direct Drive System, Set: All 22

  1. The Direct Drive System eliminates the slipper for the 22 vehicles, increasing punch and reducing the rotating mass by over 9g or 48% when compared to the standard slipper assembly

  2. Specifically designed with new spur gears and hubs, the top shaft is several millimeters shorter than a traditional top shaft to reduce rotating mass

  3. The top shaft, and spur hubs are precision machined from 7075-T6 aluminum and hard anodized

  4. 69T and 75T spur gears included for 2wd buggy and 2wd Truck/SCT gearing

  5. 66T (TLR332046) and 72T (TLR332048)optional spur gears are also available, but not included

  6. Note – Use only for 17.5T Spec Motors. This is not designed to work with 13.5T or modified motors
