    Repairing Help!

    Anyone know what I did here? Xmaxx was whining while out for a bash so I took it home to look, clunky noise coming from gear box area and took out the slipper allembly and there seems to be small pieces of shredded/metled plastic. Is this the slipper cluch pads??
    (Yes I took off the screws myself)

    [EDIT]
    So i definitely need a new spur, but is the slipper clutch okay? I dont know exactly what I am looking for


    Gunk on the metal part

    Its fine Id say. You just had it too loose and it got too hot. New pads/and get a metal spur gear

    If you're running 6s you don't need a metal spur gear (8s you do), but you definitely need to tighten up your slipper clutch. To properly adjust the slipper clutch after maintenance, put the truck on the ground. Then put your feet firmly on the back wheels as the front of the truck faces away from you. Tighten the slipper clutch nut (step by step) and blip the throttle after each adjustment until the front end of the truck wheelies to a 45 degree angle. Less than 45 to loose...more than 45 to tight. Any questions let me know.

    RegularGuy - Is that in the manual? I never heard of adjusting it that way? Thanks for the tip.

    No, but that's how the racers do it. I seen how to do it a long time ago in a RC magazine, and have done it that way ever since. Doing it that way lets you get your adjustment exactly right no matter what type of slipper clutch you use.

    just tighten the slipper all the way -
    may slip too much, heat up = damage again
    or install an 8s cush drive
    main thing is put another lock nut on
    so it can't loosen up again

    get out there and play

    I can't speak for 8s, because I run 6s. But 6s, I don't have any issues with my slipper clutch loosening up on me every time I turn around.
