You can scrape the glaze off the pads with a Xacto knife .

Also, does setting the slipper clutch that way work for a gear diff too?

What will getting the glaze off of the pads do to the performance?
Realisticaly...you probably won't get a performance "boost'...If the glazing is bad enough it can cause the slipper to slip too much and be inconsistent, that is the point behind scraping the glazing off...
Also, does setting the slipper clutch that way work for a gear diff too?
I do not have enough experience with gear diffs...so I cannot give you a correct answer.

I thought I mentioned that in the video...anyway, I have seen many people do it this way...It's based more on personal preferance than anything...

I'll look around some online, but off the top of my head I don't know...Are we talking 8th scale or 10th scale?

I found that sanding the pads is easier than the x-acto method. Use a fine sandpaper, 400-600 grit, they sand easy so you can simply use your finger tips to move the pads on the SP.

When adjusting the slipper in say a larger vehicle like the sc10, how much should the front lift? I'm having a hard time gauging if the slipper is too tight or loose watching the front end rise.
