Baja 5sc HPI Power Control Slipper Clutch Set

Thinking of adding this mod to my 5SC SS. Anyone using it? Any noticeable difference in performance, etc.? Comments appreciated.

Here's a link to the product on DDM's website:

Thanks! Nice write up and photos. It's definitely a must have mod to save the drive train and improve on/off throttle handling under different driving conditions.

I would have thought unless racing there would not be much call for these, I thought about it but to be honest you do most of what the slipper does with your head and trigger finger.

True, but it should help save the tranny for guys who drive aggressively with a heavy finger and a lot of HP.

From the feedback I have read, it will save some drivetrain parts.

Hi,

Guys I have a question.

Will the PCSC work with any other spur then the stock 57T it comes with?

I just don't get it :/


regards,

Greg

Good question, I suppose it should especially if you have a modified engine and need to change the gearing. Feed back please.

I don't see an auxillary drive for the original clutch so is this a clutch on clutch drive system?

Um, this is the same thread posted by SWD. Very informative though. Looks as though metal spur gears is the key so far.
