This is an optional Robinson Racing 1/16 Revo/Summit Gen3 Slipper Kit, with a 50 tooth spur gear. Robinson Racing GEN3 Slipper Units are over-engineered to meet the punishing demands of the most powerful brushless motor systems! GEN3 Slipper Units will not fail under the enormous load conditions of today's brushless motor systems. The GEN3 Slipper Unit is a captured design to prevent slipper pad blowout and deliver maximum power to the ground. The aircraft grade billet aluminum backplate will not bend or break and the increased surface area of the oversized pad insures dependable performance. Less total parts reduces flex and wobble in the spur gear and slipper unit.
Blackened Hardened Steel Spur
This kit includes a precision machined, hardened steel spur, with a blackened finish that improves lubricity (the capacity to reduce friction) and anti-galling (metal cracking/breaking from friction) characteristics resulting in better mating surfaces and smoother running gears.
Solid Billet Aluminum Backplate
The backplate is machined from airplane grade billet aluminum, making it very strong and very hard. It will not warp or break. The backplate uses a captured design to hold the extra thick slipper pad solidly in place.
