New Team Brood Racing Slipper Plates

New Products



Press Release From Team Brood Racing:

New from Team Brood Racing come two innovative options for one of the most critical components in any off-road competition racing buggy: the slipper clutch.

Through strategic design and machining, including multi-axis vent holes, additional heatsinking capability is achieved. The plate faces feature vented dust channels which allow pad dust to exit the assembly, rather than build up on either the pad or plate, causing an uneven surface and inconsistent operation.

Additionally, the slipper plates are available in two materials each with its own unique coating.

The 7075-aluminum version is hard anodized, and are perfect for the modified and drag racing class drivers looking to save weight as well as realize the cooling, and hardness benefits that 7075 aluminum offers. Even though 7075 is heavier than the 6061-aluminum that most OEM slipper plates are made from, the Team Brood Racing aluminum slipper plates are 0.1 – 0.3 grams lighter due to the design.

The Magnesium version is crafted in elegance from AZ61 magnesium and MAO coated for increased thermal resistance and surface hardness. These are targeted for the stock class racer looking for big weight savings in rotating mass, but without the poor driving feel of a slipper eliminator. These are not only limited to stock racing however, and have shown to provide excellent cooling with less fade, especially in the modified off-road classes. Even drag racers looking to shave every bit of weight from their drivetrain will benefit, as each plate is one gram each lighter than an OEM 6061 aluminum plate.

The Team Brood Racing slipper plates have been tested by factory Team Associated and TLR Drivers in the USA and sold in sets for the AE B6.3 and the TLR 22 5.0. The plates will also work on older versions of each car and on variations like the 22s Drag Car (other parts may be required).
