    Revo 3.3 slipper adjustment won't move

    Hello to all I have a new revo 3.3 and I changed the spur gear and after I got it back together I took it for a few Laps around the yard and all seemed fine. I hit the throttle and no moving at all. I took it back apart and noticed the adjustment on the slipper will not move at all. Not the nut side the back side. Can anyone give some input on my sutuation.
    Thanks

    What do you mean the back side?

    The little hole on the back side that you would stick a Allen wrench to adjust the slipper.

    The piece of metal that sticks through doesn't turn? Does the slipper clutch turn? If it doesn't turn on the outside sounds like you have some binding inside the transmission. That piece that you stick the Allen wrench through to tighten the slipper is a shaft. That shaft is what the slipper clutch attaches too. If that doesn't turn you have a problem inside the tranny.

    Whether they warranty it or not you'll still have to do the wrenching.

    If the spur gear spins but the input shaft does not then the slipper is too loose, you are not missing a pad or one did not crack. Tighten it up and make sure all three pads are installed and not cracked.
