Hey guys i have a rustler that was running really well using a few nimh batteries until it stopped working and now it just runs at a crawl but any more throttle and it just starts slipping....now i have adjusted the clutch all the way but no use and i have also tried replacing it with a new one as well but no luck. I have stripped down the diff and made sure nothing is wrong but still it slips at more than half throttle.anyone got any ideas please
did you use the wrong motor screws at any point? the windings in the motor close to the mounting holes could be damaged. take the motor apart and have a look.
I had a problem kinda like this once, make sure none of the gears are stripped. Another suggestion is to make sure the pinion is close enough to the spur. You should be able to run a slip of paper through it without it crumpling. Just an idea I have never had that exact problem.

Check if your top drive pin is still there and is not sheared
Also check the pinion grub screw.. I've had them back off just enough to let it slip around the shaft.. My trucks usually wouldn't move at all.. But it's something to check out and atleast eliminate as a potential problem..

Always in Trouble for trying to help out.
How about inspecting the slipper pads and disc to see if they're glazed. If so, buff with fine sandpaper or replace.

Well its deff not the slipper set as i bolted the slipper straight to the spur so no possibility of slip at all just direct drive off the motor and it still exactly the same so im now thinking it must be the diff set or internal transfer gears anyone had this issue at all and a big thank you to you all for your replies its much apprciated
Two things , What model is it ? I had a 3705 XL5 and I striped out the Planetary gear differential , It was plastic , had to put metal Planetary gear differential with steel ring gear in it and r you running Brushless ?

I think Rustler_vxl_3396 has this one right. The top shaft that the clutch rides on has a pin on the inside of the tranny case that locks the top gear to the shaft. The gear is pressed onto the shaft and it is a very tight fit but on occasion the pin gets sheared off. The tight fit of the gear on the shaft will drive the car some but when more power is applied the shaft spins in the gear if the pin is sheared off. Solution is to buy a new top shaft, the part costs about $2.95 if I recall correctly.
