Traxxas 2wd Slash Upgrade no 19 Traxxas Heavy Duty Slipper Clutch pads from a kit


In this video I am going to replace the graphite
Pads that is currently installed in the slipper clutch
in the transmission up my traxxas 2 wheel slash with aluminum pads from a rebuild kit
that is used in another RC vehicle. So now I will go ahead and take
the content out of the bag and show you the parts so here it is. So I now have the rebuild kit laid out on
the table. So now we will go ahead and take a closer look at this part. The part is a Traxxas Heavy Duty Slipper Clutch
Rebuild Kit part no. 5352r that is used in the rebuilding of
the slipper clutch in the traxxas 1/10 e-revo and the e-maxx. Obviously you notice this
part is not designed for the traxx as 2 wheel slash. All I will need for
this kit is three parts in order for me to upgrade the slipper clutch. So now I will go ahead and remove the body
once again from this rc truck So I got the body off of this rc truck So now I will go ahead and get the slipper
clutch rebuild kit out of the way so I can position this rc truck for this upgrade. So now I have this rc truck position. So now I will go ahead and remove the right
rear wheel off of this rc truck So I got the wheel off of this rc truck. So now I will go ahead and remove the dust
cover so i can get access to the spur gear. So I got the dust cover off so now I will
go ahead and remove the spur gear off of this transmission. So I got the spur gear off of this rc truck. And I will also go ahead and remove the steel
slipper disk off of the pressure plate So I got the slipper disk off of the pressure
plate. So I got the spur gear and the slipper disk
off of this RC vehicle. So I now have these two pieces in front of
me as you see here. So now I will go ahead and start removing
the contents out of the heavy-duty rebuild kit and start getting the
three parts that I need in order for me to upgrade the slipper clutch assembly what you see here is the traxx as heavy-duty
slipper clutch rebuild kit comes with. the parts that I will need here is the three
aluminum pads themselves only I do not need the other parts so they are irrelevant in
this upgrade. So I will go ahead and remove the graphite pads that are currently in the
spur gear and I will make a comparison between the graphite pads and the aluminum pads. So what we have here is the comparisons between
the graphite pads and the aluminum pads they’re both from traxxas. The course the
graphite pads are known for getting worn-out some and also the kind of dirty from
use and have to be cleaned up. And they would have a tendency to disintegrate
over time that’s why the slipper clutch has to be tight
more and more over time. As for the aluminum pads they would not disintegrate so easily
and they are supposed to be better than the graphite pads and would be
able to last longer than the graphite pads. So now I will go ahead and installed the aluminum
pads into the spur gear when I am done I will show you the results of that. So I got the aluminum pads installed in the
spur gear. So now I will go ahead and clean up the slipper
disk. So now the slipper disk and the spur gear
is ready to be reinstalled with the new aluminum pads when I am done
I will tell you the results of that. So I got everything reinstalled but the new
aluminum pads have a kind of tendency of falling off of the other half of the pressure
plate that is installed in the spur gear. After reinstalling the spur gear I have set
the slipper clutch counterclockwise by half of a turn
So now I will go ahead and remove the spur gear and show you the results
of the new aluminum pads installed in this slipper clutch assembly so here it is. As you notice in the photos that everything
fits and everything looks good at this point. So now I will go-ahead and reinstall the spur
gear back on to the slipper clutch assembly. So I got that part done. So now I will go ahead and take this RC vehicle
out for a test run with the new heavy-duty aluminum pads
and see how it works out on this 2 wheel slash when I’m done taking this rc vehicle out for
a test run I will tell you the results of that. So after taking this RC vehicle out for a
test run I decided to remove the spur gear to see how everything held up.
so far Everything held up good so this upgrade was a success as you see in the photo.
So I will go ahead and put everything back together. So I got the spur gear and the dust cover
and the rear wheel back on my 2 wheel slash I need to do now is to put the body back on
and make my comment about this new upgrade. my comments on this upgrade. Everything worked
out on this RC vehicle it was popping wheelies like it should. traxx as unknowingly once
again made aluminum pads that were meant to used
in the traxxas 1 1/10 e-revo and e-maxx and they turn out to be the same size so they
can also be used in there traxxas 2 wheel vehicles
just the aluminum pads themselves only, and I assume that same aluminum pads can also
be use in the slash 4 by 4 and the stampede 4 by 4 as well.
It was definitely not bad for a RC vehicle that I have set slipper and half a turn that’s
how I set the slipper for this RC vehicle. At this point I am done with this upgrade
that concludes this video the end for now.
