Not real sure what the cause is but you are not alone.

Sent email hope it doesn't take to long to get response...
Honestly you are better off not having those anyway the stock slipper sucks, I have the AVID Triad system and love it way easier to adjust and much more consistent. And same everything I went from 185 in 5 minutes to 140 in 5 minutes and the only change I made was the slipper for me it was night and day difference.

the wheel is not locking in. there is an angle at which the wheel is not held firm by the servo. and it chatters.

Cool I will look into the Avid slipper. Later that evening I noticed no dog bones or cvd s or axles . AE has responded already and will ship ASAP . I hope the T5M is as good as my B5M ...

Install the optional steering stop screw on the caster block. this resolves this issue, adjust the screw out until the arm hits the max servo travel so it has something firm to touch.

IMHO the Schelle slipper is a little better quality, but the same design.

umm, no. The schelle slipper uses lame centering washers and has too many parts. The avid evo had vented plates and eliminated the centering washers.

Ok. Getting a little scratchy in here I have 2 t5m and one b5m have Schelle on on avid on the other 2 I like the avid a little better as it is a little simpler, they are both good and design is close enough that it is a wash in performance but they are both light years above the stock slipper. The spurs are actually round on the avid and Schell as to where I have found tight spots on ae spurs. Point being get a better slipper set up and you won't be sorry in my opinion it is the first thing needed

This weekend was my first time racing a stadium truck, and I really liked it. one thing I was wondering if anyone has a printable tuning guide like TLR has for the Tenscte 2.0
http://www.tlracing.com/ProdInfo/Fil...uning_Tips.pdf that thing is sweet, does Associated have anything like that for their trucks? or does anyone know where to get a good reliable guide like that for these. Other than getting used to driving a 2 wheel drive again I do think I am going to look into another slipper as they put the old ones on the new trucks.
