Of coarse there is a slipper clutch for the car, every T3 comes stock with it.

really? I've never seen a slipper like that one, but then again, I've only had old cars, except my nitro 4tec, which was used, but I blew it up, got t ran over, ranaway into the curb

is the slipper set real tight? cuz I've broken two spurs in a week...
should I try setting it looser?

Check your gear mesh to make sure it's right, then try loosening the slipper.

a broken spur gear is from gear mesh, take a pice of notebook paper and put it between the pinion and spur, move the pinon sug up to the spur and paper just tight enought not to break the paper, tighten the screws down and then spin the spur gear by hand to remove the paper and as long as the paper isnt torn or broken you should have the correct gear mesh.

as for the sliper you would want it to slip for one or two feet i belive on my losi i have it tight because i race stock.

When I run stock motors, I do lock down the spur gear, or just run a lightweight locker, never stripped a spur gear on any one of my associated cars in years of racing...

Just a piece that bolts up to the spur gear, and locks down onto the shaft. Eliminates the entire slipper clutch and weighs 1/4 what the slipper would, cuts out on a lot of rotating mass.

so your just taking away the slipper, thats not a locker, a locker is in the diff. when the axles are "locked" together meaning each wheel gets 100% of the power from the trany (aside from any loss from the slipper slipping). i dont think you would realy want to run a "locked" diff on a t3 that would just make its handling go out the window.
