    Slipper - Spin your spur and look for a short stub coming out of the other side of where the spur gear is, with a hole through the stub. It should turn with the spur gear. Put an allen wrench or something in the hole so it can't turn, and then try to turn the spur gear. You're basically making the slipper clutch slip. It should be VERY difficult to turn the gear, almost cutting your skin with the teeth of the spur gear. If it won't turn, it's too tight, and you might strip teeth. If it turns easily, it's too loose, and will slip a lot, causing the pads to wear quickly and loosen up as a result, and flinging them out. Usually once you have it adjusted right, you can check it periodically to make sure it hasn't loosened up, and catch it before it gets too loose.

    If you want the upgrade, it's 5352R for the part number. It uses aluminum pads. It came around when the brushless monster trucks came out, due to the hard acceleration from low RPM that they are capable of. Nitros have to rev up and as a result they put their power down more gradually, so are a bit easier on the drivetrain.

    You shouldn't need thread lock on the nut, since it's a locknut with a nylon locking ring. If that nylon locking ring has already worn out and the nut won't stay where it's supposed to, then you can use thread lock to get by until you get a new nut. Most of the time it's not the nut getting loose, but the pads slipping and wearing down. Count the threads from the end of the shaft to the nut to see before and after if it loosened up.

    Ahh that makes sense duhh haha

    So then aluminum pads should wear slower??

    Think I'll just check it before every time I run. 3rd time needed to replace pads since i bought truck new put 1 gallon through. Thanks for your help learning a lot about this truck. I love it

    I have never had to replace the slipper pads on any of the several revos that I have had. I would say that your slipper is to louse. U can do what the Texas Wheelman said to check the slipper or what I do... put the truck on the ground not in dirt but something with good traction, if you roll the truck backwards or forwards one of these directions the spur gear will move. So lets just say it is backwards for the spur gear to move, now put your thumb on the clutch bell and spur gear. Now with your thumb in place roll the truck backwards this should suck your thumb down in the gears and stop them from moving and if the slipper is louse the gears wont spin but the nut will. Tighten the slipper nut just a little 1/8 turn and recheck. When you can do this test and the tires slide or your thumb is screaming and the slipper does not slip you should be good.
