You can scrape the glaze off the pads with a Xacto knife .

Also, does setting the slipper clutch that way work for a gear diff too?

Realisticaly...you probably won't get a performance "boost'...If the glazing is bad enough it can cause the slipper to slip too much and be inconsistent, that is the point behind scraping the glazing off...

I do not have enough experience with gear diffs...so I cannot give you a correct answer.

I thought I mentioned that in the video...anyway, I have seen many people do it this way...It's based more on personal preferance than anything...

I'll look around some online, but off the top of my head I don't know...Are we talking 8th scale or 10th scale?

I found that sanding the pads is easier than the x-acto method. Use a fine sandpaper, 400-600 grit, they sand easy so you can simply use your finger tips to move the pads on the SP.

I seriously just got what you were asking......Yes setting the slipper this way will work with a gear diff...

I thought you were asking how to set or break in a gear diff...ugh...sorry.

When adjusting the slipper in say a larger vehicle like the sc10, how much should the front lift? I'm having a hard time gauging if the slipper is too tight or loose watching the front end rise.
