    Slippage

    Today on my lunch break I ran a 2s Lipo battery for about 10-15 minutes and what I believed to be the LVC triggering was when I drove the truck back to my car to turn it off. Charged the pack and went to run it again later that day. However, I could hear the motor turning but sounded like it was slipping. Got home and tore apart the rear diff. The drive shaft was scored from gravel but seemed to be in decent condition inside. The front diff is working fine so I left that alone. Cleaned up the rear diffs gears and regreased it and reassembled it. Went to run it again and had the same issue of slippage.

    I was wondering if anyone has had this issue before and could help me diagnose it.

    Sure it's not the slipper clutch? Try tightening it up. My slipper was way too loose out of the box.
    I need R/Cers anonymous.

    The plastic bushing melted. Is there a metal replacement part # for this? None of my LHS have one in stock

    What's the part # of the stock one? You should be able to replace it with a bearing.

    Actually, mod works better than the original now that I have had it on the track. Changed to most of the Slyten set up as well. Going to need a center diff though cuz when it hooks up, it pulls some nasty wheelies (w/ the stock battery even)
