sc10 slipper wont engage

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Im really stumped here and am hoping someone will have some insight into my problem. Im finding that the slipper in my sc10 just will not engage. I have both the origninal slipper and the v2 slipper that ae released and neither one seems to work. The problem isnt due to glazing of the slipper pads as I have sanded them down to get rid of any glazing that there was. Im totally lost here because no matter how much I crank down on the slipper nut it just keep slipping. any help would be really appreciated.

Is the spring still good? What happens when you hold the spur gear with your fingers and try to roll the truck? Look to see if the slipper is slipping, or if its something in the tranny. If the slipper pads are not slipping on the spur, check gear on your top shaft (spur attaches to it) in the tranny.

Sorry man, I dont own one of these, but I did own a T4 back in the day, same thing sorta. With that said I would try out what I suggested. if you are still stumped, take it to your lhs and see if they can help you out.

Just to make sure before I offer any advice....are we talking a regular SC10, or the SC104x4? (I'm confused by the way you describe the power system in mention two which would be insanely overkill for a 2wd....) I've got my 4x4 with me, and I know a lot of the issues with the slipper on that, and a lot of the ways that can sometimes help.... my 2wd is back in Winnipeg, so that will have to wait until I get back home on Thursday.... I can take a look at it and see if I can find any ways that I can force it to not engage...

If it is a 2wd sc10 change the slippers loc-nut, these nuts may still look OK , but may still slip. $0.25 is a cheap fix

Hope this helps

One other thought, check to see if you have both dogbones.
