    My slipper clutch slipped and I tightened it and then loosened it about 1/4 of the way and it's been working fine ever since.

    not to tight and not to loose, screw it all the way in, and then go backwards 1/4-1/2 turn. Take you time and read the manual it helps.

    Well, my slipper came screwed in tight from factory and I'm guessing that wasn't intended. I set it depending on what tires and batteries I'm running. Anywhere from 1/4 to 3/4's of a turn out from the spring being fully collapsed.
