Speaking of slipper maintenance, yesterday a team mate of mine showed off a slipper pad cleaner given to him by Hartson.
Did not get the name of the thing, sorry.

Been away from RCTech for a couple of days. Giving credit where credit is due...You drove a clean consistent race, George. The only time I saw a turn-marshal touch the car was when it broke near the end.

Ok, this has never made sense any time it was posted. The slipper does not slip when accelerating, but does when slowing down? I doubt the slipper even slips when mashing the brakes. Slowing down the slipper should be doing nothing. And stuff like this, is what causes the flaming. Its not that George cant drive. It mainly the blind fanboyism and the random comments that defy reality. And a year ago MM was crap and would never be good, but now its the bee's knees. Why? Because AE started running MM......

I think what cherry meant was the rotational mass, spinning the opposite direction of the tires and motor, helps reduce how hard the car pitches forward when slowing down.

I thought of that too. And it might impact the car the way you say. Kinda the opposite effect of lighting the drive terrain. But the mod gearing and motors lend to much more natural drag than stock. How much would you feel the extra 5grams on the slipper? I suspect not much. Even so, his explanation as written made little sense. And as for the slipper being unable to limit wheel spin, it can. I dont really use it that way. Most people use it as a force absorption tool for the drive terrain on hard landings or acceleration. But a few weeks ago I was racing and swapped out my spur and forgot to properly set my slipper the way I normally do, and thus I could not spin my tires no matter how hard I dried on acceleration lol. I had to go deep into corners just to clear the jumps, lol. And yet it never slipped when braking...lol. It "can" be used to limit wheel spin, but your finger is a better tool. I am not trying to rag on Cherry, but just explaining the confusion and inconsistency in his statements. I am sure he is just trying to be helpful. But his fanboy blinders make it hard to take him too serious sometimes.

Personally I have never sanded diff rings. I have always used the stock AE rings and my diffs have been great. Break-in is key to a long lasting diff. Others sware by sanding the rings or buying the B-Fast stuff. No need to sand the pads, you can sand them at a later date when they become glazed over a bit from running.

What grit paper do you use to sand the pads?

Also, what wheels are you guys using? So far I have managed to crack the stock wheels and the AKA Hexalites. Don't know what to try next. I just removed my tires and I'm ready for a new set of wheels!

All you have to do is hold a set of the B-Fast diff rings in your hand and you will be sold.

Meant it slips both directions on power & off ..

Tighter the slipper, the more reactive the handling becomes off power.

The slipper in the video (duel vented & yellow pads) was set to raise the front end 1 in with a 7.5 Reedy.
What would of happen if I had adjusted the slipper to raise the front end 2 in instead ?
Car would hit harder or accelerate more & the car would dive into the corners harder & loose some on power steering.
Slipper is the most often ignored part on a beginners set up.

Instead should receive as much attention as the shocks , tires,ECT..

Those who believe locking or eliminating the slipper is a advantage are in for world of hurt.

I agree with Matt, break in is key! I never used to put much effort or thought into it, and just figured everyone's diff's got gritty after a few days. Then I started putting in the time to do a proper break in..The result is a diff that can last a couple months or more.
