Shweeet! Last post on the first page of the first Yokomo thread on this site! I guess that might be something special. lol...

Whatever the reason for all the front oneway breakage, I'm done with them! I figure I can put in a diff, tweak my setup just a hair, and be just as fast... or maybe be a hair slower, but at least I'll finish more races.

i'll let him try it and see what he thinks, he might not even like the oneways, if not he can take the diff and aluminum center off his old MR4

I've still got my center oneway, but I'm thinking about taking it out. I think being able to drive in harder, and brake hard might work good on the current layout at my track.

if it's a pretty open track, then oneways are probably the way to go.

LOL! I am on a tight track, I would say keep at least the center one-way in. When I put it in, I gained two laps!

I don't have much to lose by trying it without the center one-way, so I might as well run a pack or 2 without it... If it works... GREAT! If it doesn't, well it doesn't take TOO long to swap it.

Anybody run foam tires? There's a big race at my track this October (OktoberFast). It's a US Triple Crown series race, and they're running foams. I've never used them before, and I'm just wondering what's a good starting point.
