    Rebuilding the slipper clutch

    Hey All,

    I burned the slipper today and was just trying to rebuild it but that spur gear does not seem to want to come out to easy, before i start tearing the tranny out is there an easy way to get the slipper out to work on it?


    Thanks

    It slips until it gets hot and melts or the pads disintegrate

    It is really a issue on brushless setups.
    The pads can get glazed up or contaminated.that leads to slipping and excessive heat build up

    For mine i was surprised it went, i am running stock and had it adjusted to what i thought was good, i was not even running the truck hard but it started to make a clicking noise and when i got it back in the car i could smell slipper clutch, when i got it apart one of the pads was falling apart. odd thing is it still makes a clicking noise when running

    If you glazed your slipper clutch pads, rub them on some sandpaper to refinish them. Not much, just enough to take the slick surface off.
    PM me for help converting your Summit to brushless
