I am ready to replace the stock slipper clutch. What are my options? Does anyone know the name of a manufacturer that makes the slipper clutch eliminator?
If you want a better clutch than stock I can recommend what I have been using for about a year. This Hot racing double up slipper clutch. It works great, is built heavier duty that the stock clutch and you can use 3 or 6 of the stock slipper pads in it. I would get the aluminum slipper pads, they last forever and are more consistent than the fiber ones.

+1 On the HR double up w/alum pads. You will also see lower temps at the clutch. They make larger pads now too, I believe. They are longer and have the same amount of surface area as doubling the original size pads.
Never do anything half fast. Hey Ya'll, watch this
There is also the robinson racing slipper.
someone here use a t-maxx brake off 2.5 model as a clutch pad.

hey candy76man..i got the heavy duty slipper from hot racing but am having trouble fitting it as it seems to not fit together ,, help please,, lol
I got the hot racing clutch and on the back of one of the pieces were some small pieces of aluminum shavings which were keeping it from fitting together correctly. Look real close around the holes where the 2 pcs are supposed to fit together.
yer i got that but do i need differant washers/bearing cos the plate with the pads on seems to hav a lot of movement, will this movement go when i put the geared bit? newbee trying here. lol thanks for ur help
i also brought the traxxas heavy duty slipper for spares cos the washers and bearings on my old slipper must of binded too much and just got messed up bad so im having to rebuild my hot racing slipper from scratch, and as u know when u buy the hot racing 1 it only comes with the 2 plates, i got all the other parts but im still having trouble? it dont seem right that the bearing washer thingy just rests agains the face of the slipper unit?? with the spring pressed against the other side of bearing washer thingy wouldnt this stop the bearings from running smooth and bind again? do you know where i comin from???
Try going to traxxas website and look at the exploded diagram of the slipper clutch and just substitute the two hr pieces for the two traxxas pieces in the assembly.

Mr green, The bearing will only turn when the clutch is slipping so dont worry too much about the bearing. steve
