Any new info on RCM slipper? - 09.15.2006, 09:26 PM

I'm going to upgrade my clutch and remembered that Mike was coming out with a new design. I'm a little hesitant on the strobe. I read that they were no longer making the disks anymore, so I'm looking for the new best system

Slipperential is the key!

and most likely the new e-maxx transmsission will use the revo slipper, which is one of the best slippers out there. Mike is currently working on the slipperential.

My emaxx is a few years old with the friction pegs. Do you know when Mike is expecting to have a finished product for sale?

New E-Maxx Trasmision????

Is this news that I havent heard, or are we assuming this based on the fact that they just redesigned very other vehicle in thier line up except the e-maxx.


I can't decide if its more fun
to make it...
or break it...

Whats a slipperential ? J/K -

For all of you that dont know what a slipperential is - it is a center diff with a slipper on it - and it has been thru its testing and it works well.. From what i've heard anyway ;)

To my understanding it can be on the market any time now.

The slipperential completely replaces the emaxx tranny, it is a very nice set up.

Is Mike going to use 6061 grade aluminum or 7075 for the center diff carrier?

Nice to meet you!

You think it would matter for a gear/diff holder captain?

6061 aluminum im betting - the way it mounts up - 6061 is plenty strong - im not sure about the motor mount - I cut mine out of 7075 - and its plenty strong - but it might need to be redesigned a tiny bit for 6061 - not positive - but im leaning towards 6061. I'll talk to mike about it a little more...

Well that took a whole 2 minutes Just confirmed with Mike - slipperential mount 6061 - motor mount 6061 ( with a minor redesign change ) change shouldnt take any time at all.

Yeah, Serum, I thought it would be cooler to have it made out of 7075 grade.

Thanks, Walter, I know that Mike is trying his best to keep the slipperential's price within the customer's range and probably that is why he used the 6061 alloy.

BTW, how thick is the motor mount and is it morphed to the slipperential or attached via screws?

Captain, look at the pictures...By they way, 7075 would be pointless on something like that when its that thick...That would be like making a pinion out of titanium...Not necessary in my opinion.
