the slipper spool will have pads inbetween the pulley so that one side can clip under hard impact or load, but should be locked the rest of the time. The ther one is solid and it will either break, or a driveshaft will break with his hard enough. Drifiting offers little load on a spool, so I'd use the slipper.

Most likely just the blade will break. I like the slipper spool. The only issue is you really need to use the TC3 diff screw and nut in my experience or it will loosen up over time.

Yep, just tighten it. You build it just like a diff except you use the slipper pads instead of the diff rings and no diff balls.

Make sure you use blue loctite thread lock on the diff screw. You need just the screw and the large white nut from the package. You can discard everything else.

Default slipper spool 5/64 thrust balls

Hey was noticing that the slipper spool kit did not come with the 5/64 thrust balls, is the norm or should I grab them from my old diff????
