Default Slipper not needed for Brushless?

I contacted HPI yesterday about running my Novak Havoc 8.5T brushless motor in this car.. they said that I would not need a slipper... a slipper was only needed for more powerful motors???

This isn't correct, is it? Was looking at the cyber, but the slipper is expensive at $65.. add that to the kit price of $219 and for a little more, I can get a B44.

what brushed motor and esc (and pinion gear) would you recommend for Cyber 10B? At local track we have Standard Electric class with some restrictions (no carbon, no lipo, no brushless, ect.) so Cyber is perfect fit for it...

Default HPI Cyber 10 Buggy 4WD

Hey Guys

I had one of the Cyber 10Bs, it was a fast car. I ran an 8.5T Novak with the 3S........ without the slipper. Lets just say I had some unbelievable launches off the starting line. I ran it with SMC 4100 LiPos. I had to cut the underneath of the battery clips to fit the LiPo due to the curved batt clip desinged for the C cell types.

I also bought the D4 and it really felt so much smoother than the Cyber not to mention the ease of the slipper clutch helping acceleration control.
The D4 seemed to like a soft setup, the Cyber wasn't as bad probably due in large to the Cyber having more flex in the tub chassis.
I wrote an article let me know if you want the link.
