This is a optional Robinson Racing "Hi-Performance" .8 Mod Steel Slipper Kit, and is intended for use with the Traxxas Slash. 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 new GEN3 Slipper Unit is a captured design to prevent slipper pad blowout and deliver maximum power to the ground. The hi-performance hardened steel spur gear will not fail or strip. Strong and tough 0.8 module/32-pitch teeth handle all the power you can pour on the spur gear. Aircraft grade billet aluminum backplate will not bend or break. Increased surface area of the oversized pad insures dependable performance. Less total parts reduces flex and wobble in the spur gear and slipper unit. Bearing included.
NOTE: This slipper kit requires the use of .8 Mod pinion gears. It is recommended that you combine this spur gear with a Robinson Racing .8 Mod hardened steel pinion gear for optimum durability.

Its surprisingly heavy at 51 grams vs 15 grams for stock or 26 grams for stock slipper with a metal Hot Racing spur.
It sits a good bit closer to the motor plate which means the pinion has to be mounted with the grub screw near the end of the shaft and the mesh still isnt lined up perfect, I expect better from an expensive upgrade.
Last, this thing gets crazy hot. Ive run it 3 times with the locknut backed off 1/4, 1/2, and 3/4 turn. Each time the slipper is over 200 degrees as high as 240. That is with outdoor temps around 45 degrees and motor temps around 120.
This one is going to the trash.
