    Slipper help?

    So I was running my Revo at my usual bash spot and I decided to do a quick speed run on the concrete area and it did fine. I let it sit for a couple of seconds and as soon as I tried to take off the slipper started to slip and then instantly it just wasn't moving the truck anymore just a high pitched noise it makes when it's loose. Well I went home and tightened it but to my surprise it was already tight and It was still slipping. Now my question is, is it really possible for the aluminum pads to wear out?

    I thought they were made to wear out.

    Is your spur gear stripped?

    If not and it is definitely your slipper, you may have glazed the pads?



    Bash it like someone else has to fix it!

    Ok so when I replaced the slipper clutch I completely over looked the bearing that goes through the spur gear, it was completely smashed and which also caused me to burn out my slipper, Strange? Has this ever happened to anyone? Was this because I had my slipper to tight?

    prob should have checked the trans input shaft bearing too. Have had them go out also...

    if you still have some good thickness left in the slipper pads flip them & the slipper disk over, & break in the pads again...
    Would you go flip my truck back over??
