Good idea, I only do slipper eliminator on buggies.

I am using Speedy's Racing Parts slipper eliminator and the cut gears and I haven't had any problems with idlers failing. Now I oil my bearings so maybe that helps? The Ohio RC Factory is extremely high bite at times.
My truck is quite a bit lighter than most as well. I'm a little above 1800 grams so that probably makes a difference.

Thanks Slider,
I think I'll just put them on the back.
Keep the clips on front since we don't have issue up there.
looks like they will work perfect.

I had a problem with loosing way too many clips. When I took a closer look I noticed that the body mount posts were split above the clip home and the clips we're actually pulling out of the top of the posts. Since replacing the body mounts with new original parts it is really rare for me to loose a clip.
