    It's stronger but I believe the strc layshaft is a associated slipper conversion layshaft. I made the change over to strc and love it.

    As far as I know geeves is correct, I have changed over my traxxas transmissions to associated slippers with the strc lay shaft but am unaware of a stock replacement for the metric spurs.

    I have not the only thing you need to watch for is for some it requires an extra shim on the layshaft to keep the pin from leaving the slot on the trans gear.

    I have this conversion done on my Slash and Rustler and love it. The only thing I noticed was that it slipped a little too much for my liking even at 1/4 turn from snug. What I did to fix it was I took the metal friction hubs and sanded off the anodizing on the friction pad side. Works perfect after that. I think now I'm running about 1/2 to 3/4 turns out from snug.

    Avid RC also has a Triad clutch that would probably fit as well.

    I ran with my strc layshaft for awhile on 2s, loved it. I now run 3s and broke the pin, also it would strip the AE spur gears quite often.

    Its the same as the stock slash, the only thing different is is the machine work for the slipper.

    Wait a minute that might be incorrect, I wont be around my truck tonight but if you haven't received a correct answer I take a look in the morning.

    Hmmm. Mines using a smaller nut, weird. Thanks for the quick reply, but I was under the impression that a stock slipper shaft used a 4mm nut and a 4mm nut dwarfs the strc threads

    No sweat man. I believe it's a 1/8 shaft / 5-40. The 3mm locknuts are close, but not quite it. Hopefully the strc shaft threads are harder than the nut I just tried to put on there. I can't believe between strc and the avid slipper, neither company would provide a slipper nut. There's not a standard screw or nut on a TRAXXAS, thanks STRC, lol. No heads up on the thread change either.

    Sorry to blow up in this thread, guys, lol. I was one nut away from having my gearbox build finished and ended up using a zip tie to hold the triad slipper in place while I found the nut. Losa6302 is a losi parts bag that includes 4 of the 5-40 lock nuts.

    It's an odd size that's not at homedepot and it calls for a 1/4 inch wrench. I almost bought a v2 slipper on ebay, which probably would have come with the nut, but Avid's claim of being light in comparison swayed that decision.
