    Safe slipper setup?

    Im running 2 cell lipos in my pede with slipper set 1/2 a turn out seems to slip and heat up. I have no access to parts as i am in camp and i want to know how far i can tighten it before i start breaking stock shafts that i cant replace. Went to 3/4 of a turn out hope that works. What is the popular set positions?

    1/4-1/2 is usually good, but since you don't have access to parts, 1/2-3/4 seems good.

    I have mine a quarter of a turn off full. I also only run 2s and so far I have had no issue after three months and I run it 3-4 times per week.

    Edit: Saying that a couple of weeks ago the rear shafts finally gave up. Check them and you nay see the yokes and adjoining parts starting to twist. I replaced just the rears with the Tekno parts and it fine so far.
