The slipper in my 17 on the loosest setting does not slip at all , not even on bitumen .
I compressed the spring with pliers before i installed it.
Also on a clay track when would the team drivers choose the slipper over a centre diff with 500-1m in it ?
and if your racing on a low to medium grip clay track is 100k too light in the centre diff ?
Whats the minimum weight oil recommended in low traction tracks , when i tried going from 100k to 500k my buggy was really
difficult to drive and the rear end wanted to step out all the time .
Thanks in advance!

For your slipper I would take it apart and make sure you have got it built correctly. Mine slips all the time and it's very good. I personally prefer the slipper over the center diff with any weight oil. Seems more direct and gives you more on power steering. The diff I found for low to medium bite clay 200-300k is pretty good. I only use the center diff if it's very dusty and high speed sweepers. Hope this helps keep us informed.

Check your slipper. Because if i loose it for maximum it slip way to much.
Diff is more easy to drive. Car is not so aggressive.
I use only 1mil or 500K

...

Did you discover what was causing your problem? Installing the slipper nut with the flat side toward the spring would make the slipper way too tight.
