    What is the difference - slipper assembly

    Something I have either skimmed over and just missed the reasoning or haven't even thought about it before now.

    What is the different between the adjustment nut assembly on the E-Revo and Revo Slipper units?
    E model uses the spring retention and the Nitro version uses those 2 cone washers.

    I'm wondering because I'm running Mod1 gearing on ERBE/EMBE transmissions in my builds.
    Should I be using one or the other?

    Not sure why I'm thinking about this all of a sudden, i have some HR Double up units on the way so I'm revisiting the Slippers on my ERBE, ERBE-GT, E-SlayerPro4x4 (might as well do em all right )

    Good point there Cameron, i'd like to know too. the first gen t-maxx pro.15 uses the spring load.

    as i dont know what was the revo system, all i can contribute is that the spring thing works fine with mod1 gearing.

    There is not enough space to use the spring on the revo transmission, and there is too much space on the e-revo transmission to use only the washers.

    I never even noticed the shaft was longer... or is it a clearance thing?

    I didn't have time to pull the slipper off of my e-revo so I just grabbed a few images from ebay,


    notice how long the E-Revo shaft is and that it is only threaded at the last 3rd of the shaft.

    the spring is almost as long as the Nitro Revo shaft so there is no space for the slipper assembly.
