Arrow Looky here.....

I was looking through a mag and saw a very neat little part that some of yall may like? I really dont even adjust my slipper, just lock it down. I'm probably about to buy a couple of those eliminators. But if you have a B4/T4 or a Losi buggy/truck, >>THIS<< thing here is called a S.C.A.B. and makes adjusting the slipper very simple if you do that often.

hum....looks like something I would buy if I had money. The only reason I would buy it because it looks cool though. I wont need my slipper that much after I got my gtyx esc since it has like aggressive and calm throttle profiles.

Well how cool is that?

Thanks for the link.. I think I'll try one of these. Price isn't that bad at all.

People often overlook how handy a slipper adjustment is for traction and cornering.

Even with a GTX you will still want to adjust your slipper .

Yea if it is all the way in the pits, you can adjust this one on track with your digits.

"Push in, and the built-in slipper wrench engages the nut - Twist using the high-grip knob - and pull to disengage!"

Glad yall like it fellas. I thought I done good when I came across these old Trinity Kinwald slipper adjustment/shock nut tools in my LHS's half price bin. I dont know if yall know about these things but theyre pretty cool. They allow you to adjust the slipper without removing the wheel, and theyre tapered so they fit right inside the gear cover hole. Theyre also the same size as the nuts on the shocks which are so hard to remove because theres no room around the nut for a driver to fit. My LHS might have a few more of these left and theyre half price, $7.50, and IMO they are a MUST HAVE for Losi owners. If anyone wants one PM me and I'll check next time I'm there.

Also, who ever the first person is to get one of these please give us a review if theyre worth buying or not?

I know it's not hard to take the cap off your gear cover and pull the wrench out of your pocket to adjust your slipper... I just see the convenience in just having to reach down to the car without putting your radio down.. or if you feel like a last minute adjustment before the race you can just grab your car and do it...

Worth the $20 to me!!
