    Slipper kit options

    Finally I have gotten around to upgrading my brushed erevo into a brushless, got alot of the parts in and such but I was wanting to upgrade the slipper unit on it from the stock and was wondering about my options.

    I see Robinson Racing has a gen 3 slipper unit in 65T and 60T with a hardened steel spur gear, but I do not see many people running these, is it because the traxxas HD slipper unit with aluminum pads is superior, or because of the steel spur gear? I would be using it with a hardened steel pinion with the HPP motor brace as well if it makes a difference.

    Is there any other options for slipper units to consider?

    Trying to make this thing as unbreakable as I can, the Mitch316 thread has been extremely valuable to this process, but did not see anything on the slippers, unless I msised it.

    Many people don't like steel spurs and look at the plastic spur as a weak link to prevent damage to other components. Also, with the Robinson unit you do not have the option of changing gearing with the spur beyond the two options available. I have the Robinson units in both a Summit and brushless ERevo. Definitely like it better for the Summit. Not as sure about it for the Erevo but I haven't broken anything (yet). I do crawl with the Summit mostly though.

    Hot Racing makes a double slipper clutch. Just need to buy 2 sets of the aluminum pads from traxxas and it bolts right on the stock plastic spur. Steel spurs are just too noisy for me.

    figured it might have something to do with the steel spurs, I think I might either go the Traxxas HD kit or perhaps give the hot racing ones a try. Thanks for the replies.
