How do you know that you need to tighten the slipper?

I have a pair of slippers but they go on my feet.

What kind of Buggy do you have and what is the problem you are having, this will help others help you if you give more info.

EDIT:

Sorry for the multi post, was getting a database error when I press the post button

There is no slipper on an 1/8 nitro buggy.

One of many things that can slip is your clutch. Attached to the engine. Most are not so adjustable that you can just tighten it. If it has been slipping you likely need new shoes/springs, also a good time to replace clutch bell bearings since they go bad fast.

Your flywheel may be loose or the collet could be worn, your clutch shoes may be in need of maintenance/ replacing, or maybe some teeth are missing on some gears somewhere.

remove motor from car

remove screw holding clutch bell

remove clutch bell / bearings / shims (remember the shims order)

remove clutch shoes

hold flywheel with some channel locks and tighten the nut on the flywheel.

re-assemble in reverse order. make sure you have you clutch shoes going the proper way. looking at the flywheel the tails should be on the right of the pin.

I wouldn't mind seeing some kind of slipper for these brushless 8th scales.
