    Slipper Clutch Noise, Normal or Not?

    Hey Guys,

    Brand new to the hobby here so take it easy on me as I'm still learning. I purchased a new X-Maxx 8s a few days ago and I have some concerns over the noises coming from the slipper clutch. See video

    Is this normal for a new truck that hasn't been used before?

    Thats 100% normal. That noise is from the metal motor pinion and metal spur gear (metal spur is generally much louder then plastic one). Btw 8s has cush drive and not slipper clutch
