This is the Robinson Racing GEN3 Slipper Unit for the Traxxas Slash 4x4. It is a 0.8 module with a 54-Tooth Hardened Blackened Steel Spur/Slipper Pad/Backplate/Bearing assembly.
Robinson Racing GEN3 Slipper Units can handle enormous the load conditions dispensed by today's high-power brushless motor systems. The new assemblies are a captured design to prevent slipper pad blowout and allow maximum power delivery to the ground. The high-performance hardened steel spur gear will not strip or fail. Both tough and strong, the 0.8 module/32-pitch teeth can handle all the power you can pour on the spur gear. And equally as tough, the aircraft grade billet aluminum backplate will not break or bend either. The increased surface area of the oversized slipper pad ensures consistent and dependable performance. The unit also benefits by its economy: less total parts reduces flex and wobble in the spur gear and slipper unit. The bearing shown is included as well.

BLACKENED HARDENED STEEL SPUR GEAR
Precision machined, hardened steel spur, with a blackened finish that improves lubricity (the capacity to reduce friction) and anti-galling (metal cracking/breaking from friction) characteristics resulting in better mating surfaces and smoother running gears. With an extra heavy duty .8 module/32 pitch tooth profile, don't be afraid to pour on all the power you got. 3S LiPO's no problem!
SOLID BILLET ALUMINUM BACKPLATE
The backplate is 100% machined from airplane grade solid billet aluminum making it very strong and very hard. It will not warp or break. The backplate uses a captured design to hold the extra thick slipper pad solidly in place.
READY FOR HI-PERFORMANCE FUN??
A brass bushing, instructions, and some RRP decals are also included in the kit. Hop-up your SLASH 4X4 and unleash the power and the FUN!!!
TECH NOTE: You're going to need a pinion gear to match this spur gear. See the motor pinions listed below for a selection of extra hard high carbon steel 5M/M bore motor pinions we recommend to use with the GEN3 Slipper Units. Also note that 32-pitch and .8 module gears can be used together with no adverse affects such as increased noise or increased wear. The difference is that .8 module gears have a slightly larger outside diameter per tooth, roughly .00027 of an inch.
