    REVO Slipper setup

    I bought the revo slipper upgrade and I put the slipper in my truck and the whole slipper moves back and forth, is this normal?

    Yep this is normal. At least 1-2 mm.

    I mean you are talking about the spur gear / slipper assemby moving inside the gearbox front to back I guess?

    I used to have movement in my slipper area. I got the Robinson Racing brass bearing adapter and it removed all of the play in the slipper area! It is actually stuck in the bearing. I am really enjoying it

    I am sure that is a quality product also. I personally have no experience with it. I do trust matts opinion of things.
