the slipper spool will have pads inbetween the pulley so that one side can clip under hard impact or load, but should be locked the rest of the time. The ther one is solid and it will either break, or a driveshaft will break with his hard enough. Drifiting offers little load on a spool, so I'd use the slipper.
