Arrow WHAT'S SLOP???

Just wondering if anyone can tell me what it means when after a race someone might say "i am just going to go and get the slop out of the drive train". This is a 1/10 touring car that i am talking about.

gday i think that slop is something like all the fuel and grease and dirt that gets into a drive train. or it could be if it is loose then they are going to tighten it up

CVD cups and pins wear as well as dog-bone pins. When these wear, you'll get a flat spot on them or they get widened which will cause some slop. Just means it's time to replace them.

slop is any extra "play" that you have in moving parts (steering, suspension etc)

You don't need to cook it yourself!
You can just by it!
My girlfriend just loves SLOP and it also comes in this handy party pack size!
