Only use the clear grease on the main diff balls and the included black grease on the thrust bearing. That's it.

So would you run the Slipper Eliminator or go with the Schelle Nova/Avid Triad Slipper setup in Stock Buggy. In my rear motor B4.2 I liked the slipper very tight but with the C4.2 the slipper seemed to help with control coming out of the corners

Just wondering what people have run and/or prefer.

All personal preference and there is different track conditions where both can be very useful to you so i would get both, I did and i run the eliminator when there is alot of grip

Thanks you two. I will just have to try them both out. I run at IRCR so the traction is usually high but has been very high the last couple race nights.

What I decided to do was order the Avid Triad Slipper kit but then I also ordered the Schelle Lockout that converts it to an eliminator also. At least that way I have both bases covered.

Put in the Aluminum Screw Kit, MIP Puck System, MIP Topshaft, shaved down my Battery Strap, and swapped to a shorty (215 Gram RevTech) and it ended up coming in at 1569 Race Ready.

I ordered some Titanium Front Axles, Factory Team Milled Motor Plate, and the Triad Slipper assembly. Hoping to have everything when I get back from Vacation on the 30th and to have it weighing in around 1550ish Race Ready.

Jade67...this is not directed at you, as if I was running a 17.5 class with a mid motor I would do exactly the same thing! With that said I think we are spending a silly amount of money on upgrades to keep the weight down on the mid motor cars. The cost factor can not be good for the hobby in the long run. Would be good time to increase min. weight to 1600 grams... Just a thought.

yeah, the weight is only part of the spending. I listen to guys talk about how they replace their packs every 6 race days. they dont even sell them, this toss them. stock is dumb, but it is so popular locally. Mod is mostly 3-5 guys. Rivkin, Tanner Denny and a few others make up the small class. Stock gets 3-5mains on clubs night and often on a wednesday. It is hard to not race stock, when that is where the competition is. That being said. Some of the low weight options are cheap. The cheapest is the 155g shorty. The best one is the pucks. Lower rotating mass and about 30 grams lost. I lost 23 grams by taping the pack in and removing the foams and battery strap. Using tq13 awg wire drops a bit of weight also. I lost 6 grams by shortening my servo lead to about 2 inches. IMO you need the Triad slipper regardless. The stock slipper is just bad. Just think. The rb6 cost 450 and they still do the same upgrades for stock, lol. Better to start at 250 and spend 200 and be better off than a box stock rb6
