    My basher



    New to the forums. Just like to introduce myself and my truck. Looking for a set of 2s lipos for this truck. 6s is fun but I'm looking for something lighter to try nd stop destroying diffs and melting spur gears. Any recommendations for hardcase hardwired 2s packs?

    and I'd love to see a comparison between those new SPC "65C" lipos and Hyperion G3 45C. I bet Hyperions would still smoke SPCs.

    this will surely cause an argument but here is a tool to calculate true C rating http://www.jj604.com/LiPoTool/ and my new spc 5400 50c come out to 22C

    As far as the batteries go I'm pretty much dead set on thunder power. Based in the US and fits every requirement I have. I've been running lipo for years so I know how to take care of them. Just want some batteries that can handle a fast charge because I plan on racing my slash. And want something with a high c rating to give the mmm the power its pulling. If someone can show me something in the same ball park maybe ill consider it but as of now my minds made up.

    Slipper Clutch Break-In
    The E-Revo Brushless Edition’s slipper clutch requires a break-in procedure
    to ensure consistent operation with the extremely high power output of
    the included Castle Creations Mamba Monster brushless motor system. The
    slipper clutch has been adjusted to the correct initial setting for break-in.
    Follow these steps to ensure maximum performance and life from your
    slipper clutch:
    1. Make your first runs with the model using the stock gearing and 6- or
    7-cell NiMH packs, or 2S LiPo packs.
    2. Drive normally. The slipper clutch should slip momentarily when
    accelerating aggressively on high-traction surfaces (you will hear a
    whirring sound when the slipper clutch allows the spur gear to slip).
    3. If excessive slippage is noticed (slipping that lasts for more than 3
    seconds under hard acceleration), or the slipper clutch slips anytime
    the throttle is applied at any lever, stop driving immediately. Let the
    slipper clutch cool for 10-15 minutes. When the clutch is cool, test-drive
    the vehicle again. If you still experience excessive slippage, allow the
    slipper to cool once more, then tighten the slipper nut ¼ turn (turn the
    nut clockwise) and repeat the break-in process. Do not adjust the slipper
    clutch before it has cooled.
    4. Continue to run the vehicle and monitor slipper clutch performance as
    noted above, and readjust if necessary. When the run is complete, the
    slipper should be fully broken in.
    After break-in, the slipper clutch is ready for any type of driving, with any
    batteries up to 6S Lipo. Set the slipper clutch so it only slips for a moment
    (if at all) under hard acceleration in high-traction conditions. If excessive
    slippage is noticed, stop driving immediately. Continuing to drive with a
    loose slipper will cause damage to the slipper unit. You must let the slipper
    cool down to ambient temperature before tightening the slipper nut and
    resuming driving.

    That's some great info on the slipper. I've never waited for it to cool after it was slipping excessively and that could be my problem. Those tires are awesome. Wouldn't get another set of wide offset rims tho. The extra width along with the lower tires makes the bumper dig into the ground off any jump that makes you land slighty nose down.
