2WD buggies are continuing their evolution at a staggering rate and a big part of the innovation is the incorporation of laydown transmissions. Whether you choose a new factory conversion, a purpose-built buggy, or a 3D-printed aftermarket tuning option, there’s a lot of ways to jump on board. Most were initially developed for carpet or Astro-turf, and like them or not, they are here to stay and will most likely continue to grow in popularity. Check out some of the many offerings available.
The Team Associated B6 is a dedicated laydown transmission buggy dedicated to high-bite surfaces.
TLR opted to release a laydown conversion to their current 22 3.0 buggy, instead of releasing an entire kit.
Tuning company Exotek has their own limited edition conversion kit for the TLR 22 3.0 with an aluminum transmission case.
