Hi guys, long time lurker short time owner of a new slash 4x4 ultimate. I've had had this thing out for 3 runs and there's a couple of things i'm not so sure should happen on something new.
I changed out the slipper clutch after the first run, and i was pretty sure that the bearing that came out with it should stay with the car, but after the third run i noticed some warn out plastic, heres the result, it seems as tho the bearing has warn it. Should i have left the bearing out, and it's only needed when you use the slipper clutch? Or i can only think that the bearing has warn solid after 3 runs and started to turn altogether.
Pics of the said bearing and dif that it was warn on..
Here is the centre dif with the bearing included, everything sits flush and doesn't look out of place, so i'm thinking it SHOULD be in there??
Heres the video i'm talking about, see anything wrong? it seems to slip and grab, with a bit of a "dirt noise". Is this normal?
Thoughts? Much appreciated.
