Default TLR 22 2.0 slipper clutch

I just built a TLR 22 2.0 kit and I'm having trouble with the slipper clutch. I followed this video from Matt Castellano:
When I hold the rear wheels in place, the spur gear spins, but the front wheels don't pop up, even with it tightened all the down. I have looked through the manual and everything is built correctly. I set the ball diff like the video shows. Any ideas of what to look for?

I know the front wheels don't spin. In the video it shows the front end lift up. I did pull the diff apart and rebuild it. That's why I am confused and trying to see if there is some common trick that I missed.

Thanks for the reply

If the wheels don't lift with the slipper tightened all the way, the diff is probably too loose.

This was exactly it for me the first time I built a slipper/ball diff from scratch. However, I did the same thing at first and tightened the slipper all the way down, which over compressed the spring, so after fixing the tension on the ball diff I had to buy a new slipper spring in order to get it working. Once the diff was tight enough the slipper adjustment worked fine, car front end pops up about 2 inches on throttle.

So the slipper spring is probably ruined now? Bummer. I guess I'll try tightening the diff more. It already seems pretty tight. I will install a gear diff if I have to, but I would really like to try the ball diff.

Thanks for the tips everyone.

I am ordering a new spring for the slipper, should I get the regular one of the HD one?

I believe the spring comes in the TLR232066 set. You might be able to check the spring with a pair of calipers or something along those lines. Mine was bad after the over tightening though and replacing it fixed that issue. Not sure if that's common or not. The spring kit is only a few bucks though and I don't mind having a spare washer and bearing to go with it.

I was looking at these two:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/TLR232066-T...14abfaca0de766
https://www.ebay.com/itm/Losi-TLR296...kAAOSwt6Fbqu6M
I was wondering if it would be better to get the HD spring, or stay with the regular spring?

Thanks

I believe the HD is the way to go. It replaced the standard one and should be backwards compatible.

Thanks. I just ordered one. I can't wait to drive this car, it should be a bit different than Tamiya '80's re-issues
