What's it like for bashing? - 01.31.2010, 05:40 PM

I'm not a racer but was wanting to know what the Slipperential would be like for bashing?

I run an RC8T but on 6s/8s so it's a bit of a power house.

Is it still beneficial under these conditions?

Thanks,
Nick.

the slipperential works like an adjustable clutch..which helps absorb some of the drive train shock. Wherether or not you need it or want it is entirely up to you, but, considering you are running 8s....

8S? Good lord.

But, considering the slipperential was R&D'd by Monster Mike, I'm sure he put it through all the over-powered setups and I'm sure it'll work fine.

In a basher, it'll be a great shock absorber, or, if you don't care about wheelies, you can make it slip a bit to give you better control in low traction environments.

Excellent! That's what I was after.

Anything to keep the 4 wheels on the ground.

Thanks guys.
