Post Slipper Clutch Setup?

What is the correct or best way to set up the slipper clutch? I See some people grab the wheel and try to turn the gear to see if it tensioned enough?

Exclamation t maxx with new picco .26

Guys, just installed a picco .26 in my t maxx, and this engine is crazy, the sounds and the pull of it is pretty amazing, the question is, My slipper cluth seems to be rotating a lot and very slowly engaging the gears, is this bad? Any comments?

Danie, my electric racing days we set it the following way. set car on the track hold both rear tires and pull trigger. you want the front tires to almost come up off the ground, if it comes up ( pops wheelie) then loosen it. if it slips bad and dont try to come up with a decent amount of force then tighten it. also what your talking about is checking the diff. some people do like your saying hold both tires then try to turn the spur. but in my experience it is easier to do like I mention above. at least on a xxx buggy or truck.

oops i was just reading my post I thought I deleted part of it but didnt. I posted that what you were talking about was checking the diff, I was wrong. here is what I meant ok if you hold your right rear and your spur gear and turn your left tire you can check how tight the diff is (on electric) if you hold both rear tires and try to turn the spur you are checking the slipper although I feel the way I said is much better way, Matt Francis is actually the one that showed me that and its a pretty good way in my opinion.
