First off how will I know when or if to adjust this? Second...can it be done without taking the whole truck apart? I saw it done in a video but the driveshaft cover was broken off the truck in the video...With the cover on how can it be adjusted with the wrench?
The slipper clutch squeals if you floor it on super grippy ground. Concrete/carpet. It squeals cause its slipping. If you hear it, should only be for a foot or so. With stock battery I would leave it alone unless it squeals allot. Its there to keep your axles from breaking, with 3s lipo its your friend. you have to take the bottom big 2 allen screws and the top 2 big screws out and the back end wiggles off. Try it some time, once you figure it out takes only a min. To get it back together push the front and back with back tires rolling and it will easily go in place.
How tight to make it also depends on what pads you're running. You have to make it tighter with carbon fiber pads (they're harder and not as grippy) than the stock pads. There are also aluminum pads, but I haven't tried those yet so can't comment.
I run mine 1/4 turn backed out from fully tightened down.
+1 @ "tjtoed"
....unless I need to adjust it for other conditions, I leave mine at 1/4 backed off
I'm guessing with the back of the truck is off u have access to the nut...put the wrench on a roll the truck forward or back to adjust?
+2 @ "tjtoed" - 1/4 Turn from tight will do the trick for most - adjust as needed with 1/8 Turns from there if its too tight or slipping too much.
Yup. Give it a wiggle and it will pop off. Remember not to tight as it is your friend and protection from braking other parts of the drive train.
May take a bit of a wiggle but with the back of the truck off it will come out.
