Yes. The direct shaft replaces the one way shaft. The shaft used to have one way bearings, so the front shaft would spin freely. Originally, this was for three ways of set up. One way shaft- One way Diff- Direct shaft. Also, with the direct shaft, you could go diff, or One way diff.
You will have to find what works for you. Depending on track. How much you need brakes. And what you personally like.

At this time we don't have an insert planned that would be that hard.

What tires did you use these hard inserts with in the past? I believe I used them in slicks a long time ago.

The direct shaft entirely replaces the center one-way assembly, and all 4 wheels will brake.

Unfortunately they don't work very well.

When we race indoors during the winter we used the "old" Trinity Bomb One Blue (Ultra Stiff) inserts in our Pink Taper Pin slicks.

Trinity has now come out with an insert that is hard as concrete and requires massive amounts of time to dremel and shape the insert.

I was hoping JConcepts would come out with a Foam that was the equivalent of the "old" Trinity Bomb One Blue before Trinity changed the foams. Thank you!!

The Goosebumps seem to hold up well. Very little wear from a full weekend on a dry hard packed clay track.

Is there a hobby shop in Australia that sells the goosebumps?
On our track, when it's dry and dusty, only hope you have of traction are bowties. When some moisture in the track, bowties again, although losi step pins did perform there when moisture was up, but they went away as track dried out. Would be intersted in trying those goosebumps out going by the feedback on them so far.

Sounds like it is the tire you need. I'm sure you will find some soon.

What's up with the Rulux rims not being able to use Losi tires because of molded in rib on the inside of the wheel being more narrow? The only way to mount them is to cut the tires inside rib more narrow.

Which also the same thing you should do with Losi tires on AE or Proline wheels too. I've been cutting the inside bead for years.
