    Traxxas tells you to start with one full turn out and tighten or loosen from there,It depends on the track for me.
    The slipper should lock in with in two feet.
    This will help save your drive train,to tight,will put more stress on the drive line.

    It depends on the track,very rough sct's with a lot of jumps, I will run one and a half turns out, sometimes on the big flatter oval,I will run 1/2 turn out.

    is it slipping?

    I can never tell how much the clutch slips in use. Alternate method i've seen is to turn it on, hold the rear wheels, and give throttle. Loosen until it slips, then tighten until it just lifts the front end.

    Yup that's how its done. Turn it on have someone hold the wheels and give it throttle and I adjust it if its more then 2 inches wheel lift.

    That sounds like a good idea,but what about loss dirt tracks?
    It seems like that would be a bit tight.
    But I think I'll give it a try,got nothing to lose.
    Thanks for the idea guys.
