    slipper clutch rubbing on gearbox/diff bearing

    Has anyone had a problem with the slipper clutch rubbing on the gearbox/diff bearing?
    Only noticed this when building my TRCE chassis. I'll pull apart my other truck when I get the chance to see if it's the same.

    Sounds like the problem I'm having, but my Slash is new never used.

    There are only two things I can think of that will cause this. One is the slipper shaft adaptor being toasted which is a very common issue but you should not have if the parts have never been run. The other is not having the motor mount bearing that the slipper shaft goes into seated all the way causing the slipper to sit to far back.

    Found the problem. With the stock chassis it has a grove that the gear sits in, preventing the slipper clutch from moving forward and going into the gearbox/diff too far. What is happening is the shaft of the slipper is going into the diff too far and hitting the pinion gear, a contributor to this can be the bearing not sitting in the housing all the way, but there is nothing to hold the bearing all the way in to prevent it from slipping.
    Solution could be to file some off the shaft; or to add a spacer.
    Now to go and find the right size spacer.

    No that wasn't the problem, it feels like the gears binding when there is pressure pushed in on them. I may pull the gearbox down and see what's going on.
