    Why do you not want one? The slipper clutch kepps the transmision gears from stripping.

    If you don't do anything stupid and/or fun, it should be alright.

    I think jumpy and running over rough terrain will be more risky, though.

    does the adapter just have a slot for the pin on the transmission shaft? like the old slipper plate made of steel? then you just bolt a 32 pitch gear too it?> i want too lock up my trans for speed runs and off roading !!

    How are you bypassing the slipper?

    There's a part that came with my very very old Bandit kit (yes kit!) that creates a hard physical join between the shaft and the spur. It has three (if I recall right) little pegs that fit into the holes for the slipper pegs (yeah the VERY old slipper system) .

    Some of the very early Rustler and Bandit came without slipper clutches.

    I'm not at home, but if you are interested I can hunt the part down and take a photo

    Yes please do. My retired stampede had the old slipper system but I upgraded it a long tome ago and don't remember what it looked like.

    Here it is, that's an old style spur and the little plastic piece you use instead of the slipper clutch.



    I need to look at my old manual to remember how it fits, I have to admit I have forgotten And for some reason the old manuals here in the Traxxas site all have the slipper clutch instructions, none of them details how this works... Strange, unless USA Rustlers always had slippers and it was only us Euros who had them without.

    What I don't remember is if it is just the screws that hold the spur in place or there's another piece that those screws screw into.
