    Slipper clutch

    Hello, I have a pede with mip axles all around. Upgraded aluminum Hex Hubs & Proline trenchers 2.8 . Running with a 3s lipo. I was bashing it this afternoon , it lost all power and smoke was coming out of the slipper clutch area. I took the rear apart inspected it tightened up the slipper and rocked the roads again for a bit then the same issue have occurred again. It seems its loosing itself , or worn out. My reading on here I have heard to upgrade the slipper bearing what exactly will that improve. Any other upgrades I should get please let me know thanks.

    You probably glazed the pads the first time it started smoking. Sometimes you can save them be sanding them a little but it is best to just replace the pads and pressure plate. There is an aluminum pad upgrade that works pretty well also.

    Pretty sure a clutch rebuild kit will come with new pads, spring and nut, everything you need to rebuild it.
