    Splipper clutch reassembly 6s

    https://traxxas.com/explodedviews/X-...-Rear-Assembly

    Hi,

    I am trying to rebuild the kit but I am surprised that the screw is a little off of the axle.

    Is that normal ?

    Thanks.

    Once assembled


    Without the bearing

    No it's not. You should have at least 3 threads showing. This is the best photo's I have right now, so I hope it helps.

    Is upgrading to the Cush drive an option for you?

    @rizz0d : No you was right, I thought part 1 was the same than part 2 (the same one)
    @Gripdog7205 : not really, why ?

    Issue fixed, I had issue to removed the broken bearing...

    Now I have a noise when I put back the slipper clutch inside, when I move the truck with my hand (motor installed), I have to force... Need to investigate...

    i would scrap and replace the pads and pressure plates, eliminate all possibilities for binding and heat generation that could cause damage.

    It seems to be less problematic. I donít think they would have redesigned if it wasnít a better design. I havenít had issue with the Cush drive. Time will tell

    Noise issue fixed, I don't know what it was. I replaced the main axle by another one, it did the job

    Hi folks,

    I am asking you advice again.

    The slipper clutch nut keep to unscrew itself, even if I used expoxy on the thread as nut threadlocker...

    So I disassembled the whole slipper clutch again and I noticed the new bearing I've put inside is in a bad shape after 2 runs only...

    What I am doing wrong please?

    have a look at post #41 on my thread this-is-my-xmaxx/page2

    i put a second nut on the shaft. so put it back together with one nut, drive the truck and make sure the slipper is set to your liking, then add the second nut. mine never backs off.

    Awesome I did that just after I post because I saw no answers ... and I always want answers quickly haha.

    So with this double nuts, your slipper clutch stays good now ? no unscrewed nut by itself ?

    (Just to let you know) the four ways to secure a situation like yours (in this order) is by first always putting on a new locknut each and every time you have to reassemble your slipper clutch, (if the nut backs off) then a new locknut with BLUE Loctite, (if the nut backs off) then a new locknut with Red Loctite, (if the nut still backs off) the last...the best...you can do is to use two thin non-locking nuts (like what you're doing now, but using way thinner, non-locking nuts.

    For me, if my nut is new then all I have to do is to use BLUE Loctite with it. If my nut is used, then I use the RED Loctite. I only reuse my locknuts a few times before tossing them (in real mechanical maintenance you only use a locknut once).

    Anyway, one of the "Golden Rules" with A&P's is you always want 3 threads showing. If you don't have that then your mechanical situation isn't properly secure...in other words, it will eventually come loose. In your case, you may be having better results than what you were doing before, but your problem will come back with the way you have your setup now. So, be very attentive if you leave your slipper clutch that way.

    correct. I'm still using my original locknut as it never backed off in the first place and I 'double-nutted' it when it was still pretty new. I've only had the clutch assembly apart maybe 5 times ever and it's never given me any trouble.
