the stock slipper is crap. It is way too strong and heavy for stock racing. I hold the trigger for 1-2 seconds. Not very long. I am not looking to kill the pads. If your wanting to run the AE spurs, just get the FT vented slipper pads and goto a 2 pad system for 17.5. Most people goto the avid/schelle slipper. I did. I tried the 2 pad and the vts and didnt like either.

Roger that. Ive been looking at the schelle for the next upgrade. Any preference vs that and the avid?

I suspect it is the diff then, since I rebuilt it and it is noticeably looser than it was before, but following the guide at the top I thought I had it honed in. Ill adjust tonight. Thanks for all the help, greatly appreciated!

Yeah that does sound kind of light, I will put it back on the scales and double check.


Here it is on the scale right after I finished building it.

Honestly, aside from the spurs, the avid and the schelle are the same. You can order custom kits from AVID wit the spurs you want. I.E. 2x 69 tooth spurs. The schelle comes wit ha 72 and 76 for stock. At least that is what the website says. I run the AVID Triad in mine. Both have been updated for the B5 series. Personally, I would rather order the custom Avid kit with 2x 69 tooth spurs, since that are the most useful to me. The 75 is not overly usefull IMO.

I am sure you were correct. Are you running a chassis protector?

The 2 hole with 3mm spacing is equivalent to the plastic hub using he upper middle hole.

Wildcat, when I weighted it I did not have a protector on it but I do have one that I plan on adding. I am currently running the VTS slipper, but I have a Schelle slipper coming, so hopefully that will offset some of the weight of the protector.

lol, seriously? That weight was with the vts? wtf am I 1594?

My protek 130ss is 63.8g
The Savox LP is 44.5g, so about 20g less. That is fine. but we are 90 grams apart and I removed the battery strap and foams, lol. That was 20 grams...You saved 20g with the pucks, so that is 40g difference. where the heck is the other 50g, lol. I even have the lighter tq13 awg wire instead of the heavier 12awg wire. my pack is 212g. yours is what 200g?

I run shorty packs in my two buggies and SC trucks, so I have a good selection to choose from to get the weight that works the best for my setup/track. Most of them weight between 200-210 grams with the Promatch 3500mah being the lightest at around 155 grams and the RevTech being heaviest at 210 grams.


Losi Xceleron, ProMatch 4800 and 3500mah, Turnigy 4.2, RevTech 5000mah, Venom 3800mah.

I am using the promatch 4800's in your pic. I weighted them at 212 on my scale.

tires can weigh up to 30 grams more than other tires... super soft compound is considerably heavier than clay compound

i'd be surprised if the aluminum screw don't drop it close to 40 grams.

hmm, I have some typo clay and SS at home. I will compare later. I knew SS was heavier than Soft, but never really used clay before. The "new" srs might become a clay tire track. Still seems too new to tell. If I could get to 1550-60 without having to change out my electronics or buy pucks, that would be nice
