    Slipper Part #

    What is part # for complete slipper assembly. Has it stood up nicely or been problematic? I have a basic roller minus esc n motor and slipper.

    The stock slipper is good...but, if you want something a little more "bulletproof", I highly recommend the Robinson Racing Slipper Unit. However...something you need to be aware of, in advance...the RR slipper uses a hardened steel spur gear, so you'd also need to use a hardened steel pinion gear. Depending on what you use your vehicle for, this could be good, or bad.

    Bashers tend to stay away from hardened steel, sticking to plastic, or aluminum, spur & pinion gears, as a serious crash could damage other parts. On the other hand, if you use your vehicle primarily on a track, or for "normal" street/off-road use (ie. not jumping super-high, not doing flips, not playing "demolition derby", etc), then it should be safe enough to use hardened steel spur & pinion gears (such as in the RR slipper).

    If you're just looking for the stock slipper assembly, you can get it complete at Jennys RC:

    Squeegie...if I recall, you've also used the center diff, correct? Comparison? Pros & come of each, compared to the other?

    No problem! Just remember that even though they run out of stock often, keep checking. They get stock just as often as well.

    Have fun!

    That’s good to know, I noticed a lot out of stock and figured they were like Dollar Hobbyz with updating their stock. I will check Jenny’s often now that I know about them. They have a lot of 1/16 Revo and TMaxx parts
    I have kinda wanted to have “spares just in case “ and their prices allow me to do so without feeling bad .
