Default Robinson Racing Gen3 Slipper?

I have an e revo and I saw someone recomending the robinson gen3 slipper clutch upgrade. Is this really worth getting? I see it has metal spur gears which sounds good but are they really better than the plastic? Yes I know they wont strip but what happens if during running the truck if something binds? What would happen to the e revo?

If the slipper is correct setup it will be ok.

I can only speak for the savage flux that has a shitty original slipepr setup and there the rr-slipper is good.

i have the RRP slipper on my 3.3 t-maxx and i love it! just use a piece of notebook paper and put it between the slipper gear and the clutch bell gear for your mesh.

Its probably the best upgrade you can do...You can actually make the clutch slip and it will last more than a few battery packs unlike the stock setup....Buy it you wont regret it..Last clutch you will buy..

The gen 3 is very nice, I recommend saving yourself the down time and buy any pinion you might want to run in hardened steel for it, other pinions won't last. Found it much easier to set my mesh by sound rather than by paper ( and I use paper for everything ) My gen 3 was happiest just a little further away from pinion than setting it with paper left it at

I found that to be true on my RR spurs also. My son burned up four titans in a week, setting it where he thought it should go, per specs. When he went BL, I made him bring it by here and I set it to be sure he didn't have it too tight, which he did. Yep, when it's right, it's a nice sound, when it's wrong, it sounds awful.

Ditto on the RRP Gen3. I've got one in my E-Maxx and it's the only thing that holds up to that big 2-Pole.

And absolutely get hardened pinions. It will eat everything else.

Not needed IMO , adjust the stocker correctly and you will be OK ....

I just installed this piece in my summit. 2 questions:
Which side goes the curved washers ? (((( or this side )))) ? Considering that left is the spur gear ? I set up )))) since IMO the nut pushes in the washers towards the spur gear.
Also how do tighten the nut ? All the way and a quarter off like the stock setup?
Thanks !
