Interesting phrase.....LOL

I was able to lock down my slipper quite a bit but I haven't run it yet.... just using the stock setup cranked as far as I could... (my fingers...ow)

all I know is that ANYthing has to be better than the out of the box slipper setup... I set the darn thing to the recommended 4mm, and all i heard was "wheeeeeeeeeeeee" when I hit the gas. The tranny was slippin' like bird poop on teflon......

I'd rather not lock it all the way (glue) as I don't want to shock the drivetrain from jumping/racing

I scuffed the stock pad and locked the nut down to 2mm......so far so good after 5 packs at the track.

Dam.... I just bought the Atomic Slipper pads from Stellamodels :(

That's why you guys can't show me stuff... luckily they were only $2.50... ordered the 1250mah 9.6v battery too.... :D

I saw that and I was like...."1250mah!!!! gotta have 'em!" :eek:

can someone just answer if 1 of the atomic pads take the place of the alloy spacer, or do both atomic pieces in the package "sandwich" the alloy spacer?

I am betting it just replaces the metal washer instead of "sandwiching" it. Sandwiching it would make it way too thick....

Hey bit you using the Mamba 25 with your Aon 4900? Crank up the throttle curve with the Mamba Link Cable and software and let me know how the locked diff holds up...... :confused: I'm bettin' it won't last long....The acceleration is silly fast. Bet my CRANKED and KNURLED slipper is slippin' a little...It better be. Just don't run long at that throttle curve. I melted the shrink wrap off the Mamba 25 in 10 min. or less :D But damn I could throw sand and rocks 20 feet. WOOO HOOOOO!!!!!!!!

...That sounds right Crunch...I havent seen them either so I cant say...but NO washer at all makes quite a size difference...It still fits no problem though...

...I dont have the MAMBA software...I dont need it...Too much hassle for 'plug-and-play' little me :o

...BTW is it just me or does the sound of the ESC-25 remind you of a snake-charmer's tune?

Now Bit, As much as you work with your H8 you will love the Mamba link. The software is FREE on the website. The cable is like $20.00...not bad. Remember that you were BL free a month ago. Now take it to the next level. Seriously, if your kids want to play with your H8, just kill the throtltle curve. It is really cool stuff. Sorry if I'm preaching, just think you would enjoy it. Peace! :)

Where are you guys buying the Atomic Hop-ups? I don't have any LHS that carry their stuff.

I got the slipper pads from stellamodels.net... one of the pads replaces the washer that's in there...


also.. I have the Mambalink cable and the software (needed it to program my plane).. and it beats all that beeping and booping to program it by a long shot.... for you plug and play guys out there, it's waaay simpler than not having it if you own a Mamba controller

Use glue to glue them to the metal washer. Use super-fast glue, like the loctite super attak, I glued myself to the washer :mad: but It worked really fine

I don't think that's how they are supposed to go.... as they have the slipper material on both sides of each of the pads (you would think that if you were supposed to glue them on, that only one side would have grippy stuff on it... or they would have made them self-adhesive)

but if it works like that for you...great

... that is what the-border said to me when I asked them

akura2

Oh ok... well depending how they work for me as is... I might try them like that.... what could it hurt... and it makes sense now that I've thought about it.... the pads are so thin ...and there ARE two of them....


it's just that since they were grippy on both sides I didn't think they were supposed to be glued on.... they should have made them one-sided and self-adhesive... then it would have been obvious... I would have paid the $.50 more for that

Well I took out the single pad and glued it along with the other pad to the slipper washer... works like a charm... the car really gets up and goes... It's almost scary

I didn't get to try it without the washer and just the single pad... but this way works great.....
