Will the Spool take away alot of Steering?. . . . .(The Evo 5 has alot of Steering with the Front Ball Diff).
The spool increases on-power steering, but takes away a little off-power steering. However, you can adjust for this with setup changes.
If you want to give it a try without buying anything, a rough estimation would be if you tightened your diff down all the way. Some say that having a "slipper spool" where you replace the diff balls with slipper pegs (like what Traxxas or Kawada make) and tighten it down is better than a pure spool, because it will "give" a little in an impact. Myself, I just have the Tamiya spool from the TB-03 (and try not to crash
). Plus, at ~$20 for the part, it's not too expensive to try.
I find that a spool makes the car a LOT easier to drive for me than with the one-way. I don't have a front diff for comparison's sake, but in comparing my Evo V and TA05R (both with front spools) and a TC4 I used to have (with front diff), the spooled cars pulled harder through turns.
