Take landing from a jump for example.. how is an ESC going to compensate for the hit on the drive train assuming you don't get your finger off the trigger? Or let's say you grab a handful of throttle (to use an mx term) while the ESC may adjust the power delivery based on a curve, if the track is slipper or you have limited traction you're still putting a lot of power down.

Let the slipper help you, it is your friend

Well , it came today . They make them for the xxx and xxx-t , and a different one for BK2 and MF2 . I ordered the one for xxx thinking it might fit my xxx-cr , it did not , it will mount but there isn`t any clearance from the sliiper shaft and the know to adjust the slipper and the knob would be rotating with the shaft . But it did fit my MF1 so wasn`t a loss . Seems to work pretty good , so far .

There was one thing I forgot to mention about these... As far as Losi's go, it looks like you need to use the RPM gear cover because it doesn't look like the low profile CR gear cover will give the proper clearance.

Then you'd remember how the HotTrick slipper clutch was the ultimate upgrade, and soon after every car came with them. They haven't been putting them on cars for all these years for nuttin'
