    Slipper Clutch alternatives??

    So I just finished building my car today and was really excited to get it out, soldering it all up, set my gear mesh, and programmed everything.

    Well I went outside and within minutes I realized the slipper wasnít doing well. I knew I would need to upgrade it but I went easy on the initial gearing and thought it would hold up for alittle. It did not, so Iím looking for some alternative.

    The max Iím going to run is 4s on 50/20 gearing, but most of the time Iíll be running 4s with 50/18 gearing. I will definitely run bigger pinions when running 2s.

    So I found a couple options:

    1. A slipper clutch eliminator from eBay
    https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?m...2F392280009460

    2. Hot Racing One Way Differential HRASLF125X0
    Hot Racing Aluminum Center One-Way Differential: 4x4 Slash https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00XF8GCA6..._bP2XCbZHKBGPJ

    3. Hot racing Trx15gp Double up slipper with Trx15hs anodized slipper pads.
    Hot Racing TRX15GP Power Double Up Slipper System, Large https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0077S06KM..._-Y2XCbJ396TXZ

    With

    Hot Racing TRX15HS Aluminum Hard Anodized Slipper Clutch Pads (3) - Traxxas https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0081V5B2M..._702XCb8MS31KB

    Iíd prefer to go with the first or third option because I spent the money and got a Robinson racing spur gear for the slipper assembly. Iíd rather not have to spend the money and get a new spur gear.

    Thanks for any advice in choosing the best option.

    Is it slipping too much? How about using a T-Maxx brake pad in place of the slipper pads?

    Just tighten it up. I run 4s and a 1/8th scale motor and it is tight. no issues

    I removed my slipper one time and ended up stripping my spur gear. I went with a slipper eliminator and realized quickly that was a bad idea for me. Just donít give it full throttle from a dead start unless you like stripping spur gears. I just went with the E Maxx slipper and pads. Works great now. My 2 cents

    I use the Revo clutch with aluminum pads,5352R and 5351. 1/8th scale power on 3s with an occasional 4s. Run 20/50 gears using a plastic Traxxas spur without issue. The Tmaxx disc(4964) is sitting in my spares waiting to go in but I have yet to break the Revo set-up

    This. The Revo slipper clutch assembly fits great, also with the aluminum pads that the regular trim Sl4sh vxl doesnít get. My slash 4x4 on vxl-3s using 3s, and my rustler 4x4s with 2200kv motors on 4s all use this set up and the plastic spurs do fine.

    I've never had a problem with the stock slipper clutch. I have run everything from 2s to 6s using it. I went with the disc brake and Revo slipper clutch to try something new. I have been very happy with both setups. Proper adjustment is paramount!!!

    Using HR carbon fiber pads, they works gr8, and looks like they will last forever (no wear after more than half year). And...agree, stock slipper clutch works good

    Btw. that HR one way diff is for braking with rear wheels only, correct me if im wrong
