heres what you do, flip the slipper pads the other way around. if that does not fix things put the 2 faces to some fine grit sandpaper. but the odd thing is my slipper is 3 or 4 years old and is fine...

When I rebuilt the latest Slash that I got on trade, I had to replace the slipper pads:

I like to start out with the slipper on the loose side, then gradually tighten until I get the level of acceleration that I'm happy with, it's just a "feel" and hard to explain when you've applied too much tension. If the car tends to spin out on hard acceleration out of a corner, then chances are the slipper is too tight or diff fluid is too thick. More tuning options to consider here such as softening rear end to get more rear grip, etc:

How do you flip the slipper pads, I don't even know how they stick to the metal plate, is it just glue?

they snap in place, be careful when prying them up so they don't chip, they are fairly brittle

Well I flipped them and still no luck. I don't see how just a little spring tightened onto a bearing would hold it enough to handle the power. It slips so easily...it was never like this...

Perhaps someone could share what their slipper setup is like because I feel like in my frustration I must be missing something blatantly obvious. Like it slips on half throttle on hardwood floor! How is that even possible?! Theres barely any traction.

just a quick question, is the pin installed on the shaft for the slipper to key on? or is it free spinning and pushing against a spacer then the bearing on the shaft in trans case?

The pin is for it to key in, hence the slot on the back most part of the slipper.

Also the odd thing is have not touched my slipper in about 2 years and it's fine, and I'm 99% sure my pads are melted from having to to loose when I first installed my castle system, haven't checked and it's fine so I don't care if they are a bit melty
