Press Release from XRAY:
Redesigned slipper clutch set allows the rear shock absorbers to be mounted frontwards. Frontward mounting position increases stability on surfaces where the rear of the car collapses, particularly in high-speed corners. Team drivers also prefer this position on low-grip tracks.
Power from the motor is transferred to the drivetrain via an externally-adjustable central slipper clutch for quick & easy tuning. The 2-pad slipper clutch ensures super-smooth clutch operation and efficient, consistent braking. It is very easy to make ultra-fine adjustments to the slipper clutch externally.
The slipper clutch pads are made from ultra-efficient SLS material with very-high slip efficiency, thus allowing very precise slip adjustment.
The lightweight slipper plates are machined from premium Swiss 7075 T6, additionally hardened before a final black surface treatment.
The plates have a machined relief which decreases the friction surface to assist with clutch slip adjustment. With this plate design, pressure is focused on the circumference of the clutch pads for increased efficiency.

• #365775 Composite Slipper Clutch Spur Gear 75T/48P
