I prefer the Schelle slipper.

The Schelle gear material is also nicer.

I also prefer to give my money to the guy that designed it in the first place.

You can't go wrong the Schelle slipper it's 10x better than the stock especially running mod motor . Quite smooth and you can change the pads for different gaugement pending on traction level .

The material that is used on the Schelle slipper makes for a very quiet drivetrain and they never wear out! Combine it with the Tuning Haus pinions (Schelle sells these...) or the AE aluminum pinion gears makes for uber quiet gear mesh.

Speaking of Schelle Slippers and lift. I just finished my b5M (1st car since 1988), and installed the Schelle slipper during the build. So 2 days ago I went through the diff break-in per the video in this thread, and then tried the Slipper setting per the same videos, but I couldn't get any lift at all. I tightened it as far as I could go ans still no lift. Any idea why? Running the Hobbywing XR10 Justock, an EcoPower Slingshot, and have the Airtronics MT-4. My battery is a Team Trinity 2s 80c (3400mAh).

Maybe I need to adjust the ESC "punch" setting, I left it at the default. Also, the battery wasn't fully charged. It was only in storage mode.

Not sure if those two things will make a difference?

Thanks in advance.

Ahh thanks. I haven't charged the battery fully yet, I still have to paint the body. I did run it body less outside for a few minutes and it was very fast. Guess with a fully charged battery it will be faster.

Guess I can try that tonight.

I've been wondering about batteries too. I thought about getting the ProTek RC 2S 100C X-Light Shorty LiPo because the weight is only 147g (vs ~210g for most shorties), but the capacity is only 2800 mah and one reviewer commented on relatively high IR. I'm not sure if the big loss in capacity is worth it the weight savings. I presume a lower capacity battery will loose more punch quicker then a higher capacity (4000-4500 mah) battery, especially in a 10 minute main.

If I go from 2x1.6 pistons, 32.5wt AE oil up front to 3x1.4 pistons, anyone know of an approximately equivalent wt. oil? Maybe AE 30 wt.?

If my maths is right you will need 37.3wt to keep the same effective damping.
