    Shredded slipper pads!

    Anyone shredded their slipper clutch pads before? I was in the middle of an epic bash session at the local park and noticed I Didn't have front wheel drive. The grub screw keeps coming out of the front center shaft. So I was doing 1/4 - 1/2 throttle doughnuts after that. Suddenly I had no power to the rear wheels too! Thought I tore up my tranny. After I got home, I split the tranny and fount the gears were fine. So the problem seems to be this...



    Whew! It definately coulda been worse. I'm thinkin my slipper was too tight. What do you guys think?

    I broke the slipper, and got the Robinson racing one, it cost more, but it is worth it, also the double slipper from HR is good.

    Wow, how'd you break the bracket? Was it defective?

    I would like to know..have no idea. It was noisy, and I thought it was just loose, but after tightening it, the slipper was woobeling all around.

    I currently have a cracked pressure plate as well. I keep cooking the aluminum slipper pads. On 6s they just will not hold up tp the power. I always crank my slipper nut down as tight as I can get it anyways, so does anybody know of a slipper clutch eliminator? Like used in r/c crawlers?

    Bad, Bad idea. The slipper clutch saves you drive line from shock and rough starts and stops. Taking it out will result in some thing else breaking.

    Finisher, I was wondering what was the P/N of the motor gear you needed for this new slipper set-up. I also found out that you can get new bearings and pads. I understand the P/N's are 7851 and 7980.

    Get a HotRacing double up slipper hub & use either the aluminum pads or use a old stye #4964 T maxx brake disk.

    I like it, but would you show a complete layout in the order of how the parts would assemble. Like from the (referencing your top photo) end nut (on the right) to the set pin (all the way on the left).

    These would've also been a good pads to use. I have them on my Pede 4x4 and they work really good.

    The Hot Racing slipper plates just replace the stock pieces.
    It assembles just like stock, the only difference is the T maxx brake pad in place of the 3 slipper pads.
    The holes in the brake pad need opened slightly to sit on the alignment pegs, which can be done with a drill bit or file.

    Yes, but it looks as though each pad hole of yours' has an alignment peg in it. My stock plate holds 3 small pads, and only has 2 pegs per pad which (of course) is 6. Yours' looks to have a total of 12 holes with a peg in each hole.

    That's because your's is the stock slipper & the one in the pic is the Hot Racing "Double Up" slipper, it will hold 6 of the stock type pads.
    It goes together just like the stock slipper does.

    Here's what it looks like with 6 of the aluminum TRX slipper pads on it.

    Here you go RC. The first part is from Robinson Racing, and the last part is from Hot Racing.

    There's a bunch of BL revo guys running 6S with the HR/brake pad setup, and there's the Robinson racing(#7960&#7965), your stuck using a steel spur.

    The HR/brake pad setup is what I plan to use on my BB Nitro truck.

    What does BL for? Also, when I said the Revo one works with our Emax, I was referring to the Hot Racing one...just to let you know.

    BL=Brush Less.
    Yes the Hot Racing slipper fits multiple vehicles, Revo, T-Maxx , Summit, Long Chassis e-maxx, 4x4 Slash.
    As long as your truck has the Revo spec slipper, or the slipper conversion kit installed in it, the HR slipper will work.

    What torque setting would you use if you have the HotRacing set-up with the 6 aluminum pads, and what torque setting would you use if you have the HotRacing set-up with the Tmaxx brake pad? The normal Traxxas stock set-up, torque setting is; back 1/4 to 3/4 CCW turn from the full tight position.

    Dann117, did you do the 6 aluminum pad mod or the Traxxas brake pad mod & what was your final setting?
