    Shimming really does make a big difference on the differentials. Also, we found keeping the slipper clutch loose helped a bunch, particularly with breaking shafts. We run some monster tires and...

    We've tried the GTR aluminum with TIN coated shafts and the GPM with Tin coated shafts. Can't really tell that much difference in the slash or summit. But both are better than the stock plastic...

    We've been using them for a while in the stock knuckle/axle carrier. Had one back out, probably should have used some thread lock. Other than that they really help with the slop which is a problem...

    We put a JR ds368bb in our Summit with 5" tires last month. No problems, all metal gears, about 50+% more powerful as I recall and ball bearings.

    We use a 23T pinion with 50T spur and series connector in our Slash for bashing. Sometimes in the grass it can get too hot and when running a long time w/o stopping.

    Have you compared the 7373 Gymkhana Traxxas slick to the 4370 4Tec Traxxas slicks?? I understand the 4370 is a medium compound, don't know about the 7373.

    Another way to fix that problem is to roll into the throttle. The looser slipper clutch is taking away some of the motor acceleration, reducing the chances of the wheels breaking free.

    I would buy them if they did. The ends on that design are like the axle ends for the Summit.

    We run a 28/50 set up with 7.2 in series w/o heat issues many times. But, you can't put a lot of strain on the motor causing it to suck up amps and get hot. We've done 28/45 set ups with smaller...
