The new AVID Triad Slipper Clutch fits the AE B4 and the TLR 22 lineup and has several advantages over the current slipper offerings. The design allows the clutch to transmit power, yet still maintain a degree of slip without overheating. The amount of difference in the clutch can only be explained after running it. When racers run our clutch, and then switch back to standard, it becomes clear how many areas of the track the AVID clutch improves the car.

We are offering two kit setups to better suit your needs. The only difference between the Mod and Stock kits will be the spurs that are included. That's right we are including two spurs in each kit with the Mod kit having 81/84 and the Stock 72/75.

Triad Slipper Clutch and Spur Gears for B4.1, B44.1 and TLR 22

The AVID Triad Slipper Clutch represents the next-generation in slipper clutch design. The Triad slipper utilizes 3 drive plates and 3 slipper pads to make a compact clutch that has better driving feel, lasts longer, and has a lower rotating inertia. A slipper clutch must balance three connected elements: Torque, Pressure, and Friction. AVID has what we believe is a perfect balance in the Triad slipper. The Triad slipper has been tested by World Champions and they agree that this clutch is the future. AVID plans to adapt the Triad design to as many popular models as possible. The first offering in the lineup will be a direct fit to the B4.1, B44.1 and TLR 22 families of cars and trucks.

With the advent of brushless and Li-Po technology, 2-plate slipper clutches have been carried over from previous generation cars which were developed for use with brushed motors. The problem is that most 2-plate slipper clutches are pushed to the limit with today’s brushless motors. Therefore, racers have to practically lock their standard 2-plate clutches to handle increased brushless power. The clutch is over-stressed and the power delivery is abrupt with the clutch acting like an on/off switch. Racers are constantly checking their clutch only to find that is has locked up. The Triad Slipper spreads out the stress over 3 drive plates and 4 drive surfaces compared to the current 2 surface-2 plate clutches supplied in most kits. The AVID team created a design which solves all of the problems racers are having with slipper clutches that melt and lock-up. The AVID Triad Slipper will have 20% more torque capacity in a compact package with lower rotating inertia and no lock-ups due to high pressure. On the other side of the coin, large diameter 3-plate clutches have their own set of issues, including excessive rotating weight and excessive torque capacity. Large diameter 3-plate clutches in our testing also have the problem of acting like an on/off switch with abrupt power delivery.

Slipper Features:

1. Small diameter, 3 plate compact design

2. Proprietary Triad Spur Gears (see below)

3. Approximately 20% more torque capacity than a standard slipper clutch

4. Progressive power delivery, Designed to avoid lock-up

5. 3 identical drive plates for easy assembly and maintenance

6. 3 slipper pads which key into the Triad spur gear

7. Stock Racer Set for 17.5 racers includes 72 and 76 spur gears

8. Mod Racer Set includes 81 and 84 tooth spur gears for a buggy, truck, or short course racer

9. Direct fit to the B4.1, B44.1*, and TLR 22 families of cars and trucks. (* 3 standard axle shims req’d, available separately).

10. Each set includes 2 spur gears, 3 drive plate, 3 slipper pads, 1 topshaft adapter, 1 spring adapter, 1 spring, and 1 AVID mini decal sheet.

Triad Spur Gear Features:

1. Made in the USA from custom blend low-noise material: Most spur gears in the industry are made from material with glass fibers embedded inside to increase strength, but this also increases noise. AVID Triad Spur gears are made out of a premium high-strength plastic material (3 times the impact strength of delrin) with zero glass. The result is a gear that is both strong and quiet.

2. Precision 48 pitch tooth form: AVID triad gears roll smoothly because of their involute tooth profile which prevents the teeth from dragging as they roll.

3. AVID Triad gears are centerpoint injected for uniform thickness and balance resulting in a true-spinning spur gear. AVID custom tooling ensures the gears won’t wobble!

4. Gears are marked with the number of teeth on the outer ring.

5. Gears are marked for easy assembly with a “1” for 1 plate, and “2” for 2 plate.

6. Available in 69, 72, 75, 76, 78, 81, 84 and 87 tooth configurations.

Bon veuillez pardonnez mon anglais moyen mais en gros ce nouveau slipper permet de mieux faire passer la puissance des brushless au sol en évitant le coté on/off ressenti avec les "slippers classiques", est ce bien ca? Autres avantages offerts que je n'aurais pas capté? confirmation que si ca passe sur un B4.1 on peut le passer sur T4.1??

Tonton.

Triad Evo Plates

The Triad Evo Slipper Clutch utilizes a new plate design that is self-centering so you no longer have to use those 3 annoying black washers that you are always dropping on the floor. We also added 3 vented slots in order to remove some rotating mass (a whopping 0.4g, well we tried) and to help with cooling the plate in during a vented operation.

The original Triad Slipper Clutch Kits will have a running name change to Triad Evo Slipper Clutch and will include these new Evo plates along with a new set of install instructions. The Evo plates are also available separately if racers would like to upgrade their current slipper, nothing else is needed.

They are compatible on every vehicle except the Durango conversion. Due to the nature of the Durango design they are too tight for operation so now the Durango upgrade kit will include (2) original Triad Plates without any price change.

For customers that just recently purchased a Triad slipper and have yet to use it, we will honor a free exchange of the original plates for the new Evo plates.

1. Self-centering plate design, no more black centering washers needed.

2. Vented to remove rotating mass and better cooling (vented operation suggested).

3. Made out of 7075-T6 aluminum and then hard anodized to ensure a long life.

4. Included in Triad Evo Slipper Clutch Kits.

5. Backwards compatible with the original Triad Slipper Clutch.

6. NEW Install Instructions.
