    Hot Racing aluminum double slipper plate doesn't fit gear cover!

    Hi, like the title I have HR slipper plate and it much thicker then stock plate so when I put gear cover on it is little tight, wondering if anyone using HR slipper and having same issue? if I get Telemetry gear cover should it fit?
    Thanks

    I swapped to Mod1.0 and run without the cover. Noticed the same issue as well.

    One other option is to just cut the face our of the cover. Keep the top part but just cut out the part that faces to the back.

    I use a T-Maxx brake disk ($3) as a slipper disk. It is also much thicker than the stock pads. I use Dremel sanding drums to clearance the inside of the gear cover.
    You can take an bunch of material off before holing the cover.
    I don't think the telemetry version is any better.

    Mod1.0 is the size/pitch of gears on the Nitro Revo and most other 1/8 scale RC.

    Once I sand the inside of the gear covers, the spurs fit. I've done it on three different trucks so far. I'm not sure if this will work 100% with the aftermarket slipper.

    i had no idea the nitro revo was mod 1, I guess i'll order up some 40T I have a few mod 1 robinson pinions.

    I'll try 40/14 first, its close to the ratio I have now.

    You'll have to dremel/grind a few millimeters on the inside of the cover, and then let the spur smooth out the rest. First time I hit the acceleration after installing the HR slipper, I ended up with a whole lot of smoke and plastic shavings all over my car

    Been running the HR slipper for a few months now and it's been working great. Only problem is the carbon fiber pads which are just too slippery and require tightening the slipper nut all the way. It still slips when it's supposed to but when it's tightened all the way you at least don't lose any power.
