Default B44 slipper help

Does anyone have a routine to see if the slipper is set properly?

They say to let it slip a few feet when blasting off in a straight line. But in reality I find you set it as tight as you can while maintaining a controlable car! if your car squirels at the first pull of the trigger, try loosening it a bit untill you can control it. Of course, if you are running a too powerfull motor that might be the problem rather than the slipper. No use running a 3.5T brushless if you need a completely slack slipper to control it (which will just wear out the slipper).

Hope this helps!

Set it so it slips for 2 to 3 feet when you nail the throttle on pavement. you can make small adjusments for the track from there. The slipper isn't really meant as a traction control device, it's to save your drivetrain, so you don't want to go too far either way.
