    6 pad slipper clutch?

    Hello,

    I recently converted my summit to brushless and it has allot of torque.
    And the stock slipper isnt holding up to the task.
    I know there is a 6 pad slipper out there but where can i buy that 6 pad slipper?
    who has the product number or a store where i can buy that thing?

    PS sorry for bad english

    I'm not sure, but look in to what the E-Revo uses, and that should work just fine. If it's the same setup, then you need to figure out where to set it - loosen it or tighten it. GL!

    Hot Racing makes the double up clutch that can use 6 pads. Also might want to look at Robinson Racing slipper clutch but it has a dedicated metal spur gear.

    I also saw a mention a while back about someone using a clutch disk from a fuel car. Requires slight modification but it gets you plenty of contact area. I'll start digging

    A couple notes:

    The disc brake is thicker than the original pads, and the thickness varies from one disc to another. You may be required to clearance (sand down) the inside of the gear cover so the spur doesn't rub. Alternately, allow the spur to rub and it will quickly do its own clearancing.

    I've had a disc cause spur gear wobble on one truck. I don't know why. I have not tried that particular disk on another truck.
