    Slipper question from a newb

    Will tightening a slipper make the truck harder to roll by hand? Itnseems like it would and that's what happened to mine. I think the mesh is good so I don't think it's to tight, but I have been Wrong many times before lol.

    I don't think it will but I know these castles do not roll freely like the vxl system. Mine goes clunk clunk clunk if I force it to roll by hand.

    Is the big bearing bad that the slipper goes in? Also check the little bearing in the spur gear. If that is smashed it could throw off the whole thing. I had to upgrade to steel bearings over the stock rubber sealed ones.
