slash 4x4 rear center drive hub......exploded on me!

Post  drebies on Mon Aug 23, 2010 2:44 pm

i dropped a mamba monster in my slash and i took care to completely upgrade the driveline first...robinson racing gen 3 slipper...mip front center hub,and strc shaft...i think im good right?
well i couldnt find a better rear center hub and thought that was wierd but when i rebuilt the section i realized the stock one was steel,im figuring im good......yea right..
that rear center hub i blown to pieces right now.
running just a 2cell lipo.....i only was lightly bashing it.
i tightened the slipper all the way compressed and backed the nut out about a 1/4 of a turn.
what do you guys think....just too much power period.
or should i be running the slipper a little looser....
i hope mip...or strc...someone who make quality stuff makes a rear center soon,or maybe someone does and i just missed it?

S&H has a slipper from Hot Racing that should be able to handle that type of power... call them. :-)
