    Problems to adjust slipper clutch

    Hi,
    the slipper of my slash was too strong out of stock - so i tried to loose it with the 4-way wrench.
    But trying that, the wheels are turning. Holding the wheels on the ground i was not able to loose the slipper its was too strong..

    What did i make wrong?

    Thank you

    Mannie

    Grab the back plate with pliers, then use the wrench on the nut.

    It seems a large majority of Slash owners on this forum are experiencing the same thing.
    Just turn it with all your might. Try holding the spur gear instead of the wheels. If you hold the wheels and the clutch ends up being tighter than you first though, who knows, maybe you could mess up the drive axles.

    I actually had the same problem. I ended up flipping the truck on its side and put it on my lap. I kind of held the tires down with my left arm, used my left hand to hold the spur gear and my right hand (I'm a righty) to loosen the clutch. I found that (for me, at least) it's a lot easier to loosen it when you're looking down on it then when you're doing it from the side.

    I stick an Integy driver in the drive line to lock it up... works nicely...

    Work smarter, not harder my friends.

    I use pliers to lock mine. If I don't lock it all it does is slip.

    It helps to use something with the nut driver to get more torque on it. You can put a small screwdriver or something similar through the side arms of the four-way nut driver and use that to turn it.

    I think they took the trans from the VXL production line. So they were set really tight. I dunno.

    I had to wrench on mine with an actual socket wrench to break the nut loose so it would turn. It was REALLY stuck on there, definitely not "RTR" in the sense unless thats what they wanted the slipper set at for the Titan, which I never used anyway, straight to VXL for me.

    Still running mine like it was set at the factory and havn't had any problems. But then again I usually run a really tight slipper on all my stuff anyway.
