22 3.0 3-Gear Laydown Transmission Conversion Kit by Team Losi Racing
This product was added to our catalog on May 2, 2016.
This Team Losi Racing 22 3.0 3-Gear Laydown Transmission Conversion Kit includes the necessary parts to equip your 22 3.0 2WD buggy with a more stretched-out laydown transmission. The conversion kit serves to keep a low transmission CG and push the motor more inward into the vehicle, effectively changing the front/rear weight bias more forward. This conversion kit is recommended for high traction carpet, turf and astro tracks.
Updated parts included with this conversion kit include a chassis, body, transmission case, idler gear, motor plate, battery plate, battery pad, aluminum rear hubs, hardware, and more.
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!
