    My B44 has been melting the center part of the spur gear and I've read that the slipper clutch is most likely the problem. Can anyone give me some tips on how to set it properly? Thanks

    What part did you melt?
    The spur gear itself?

    Try to set it like the manual suggests, what motor are you running?

    The center part of the spur gear teeth is melted. I'm running a 6.5 turn Reedy motor with an 84 tooth spur.

    Well what I think is that your slipper is to loose with causes a lot of friction so the plastic melts.
    Take your slipper out of your car, change the spur gear and set it like the manual and test it.

    Don't forget to look at the pads. You might have to lightly sand them or replace them if the glaze is to bad on them.
