Default One way help

Hi Fellow R owners

I have just bought part no.LOSA3358 one way kit, the whole assembly went together really well until it came to the dogbones and the RCD axles in the kit you are supplied with 2 solid pins and 2 split roll pins,whilst trying to assemble the dogbones relative to the axle i noticed the both sets of pins are too short as anyone else came across this problem? if so how did you get round it? the only way i can see in rectifying this is to buy longer pins.

How do you find the one way compared to do diff? is more difficult to drive? do you have to have a different set up compared to the diff?

Also, are you gluing the outside bead on the fronts at all? Does your car lift or have a tendency to want to traction roll if you drive it too hard?

thanks in advance,

I was using motorspray to wipe the junk off, gooping when i charged my pack so it soaked in good, i had them dry before going to tech...seemed to come in faster, otherwise major push for a lap or 2. No glue, it was very mellow.

You need to use lcd stuff for the front axles, rcd will not fit with the short dogbones. You will need to use a pair of lcd stub axles and a lcd rebuild kit in addition to what came in the oneway bag to put together a complete set of axles...or just swap out the dogbone side of what is currently in the car.

Hey fellas!

For the Type R faithful... my Birds' setup is attached. It's not a whole lot different than what Larry and I ran in Vegas.

Ok, back to bed.

Thank you so much for your help , the thing i got confused with is that the manaul states you must use RCD when using the oneway so i contacted Losi but i don't think they clearly under stood what i was trying to point out, but they were still very helpful , but i all need to do now is buy the uprated rear layshaft LOSA3320

Rcracingkid how did you find using the oneway? did you have to change your set up from using a diff?

Well, my Type R's have been great so far...so far for the tight and technical 140X70ft outdoor asphalt track its been very smooth and easy to drive using T. Hodge's Reedy 2007 race set up...but it needs to be much more aggressive. I need it to rotate quickly and turn left to right much faster- it needs to be more reactive...tried some of Schreffs set up for the Jackson race, but I still dont get the reaction I'm looking for...I have tried different shock oils and spring combinations, roll centers, camber link, sway bars, JR-Link and standard, but it just doesnt seem to get them car to become so agressive that you actually need to calm it down...that's what i'm looking for...I'd like for it to be reactive anough that I'll need to actually tone it down a bit...Any suggestions?

Currently using:

Ride height: 5mm FR, 5.5R
High ROll centers all around- have tried High front, and low rear also
Shocks- 45W 15lb front, 40wt 12lb Rear with 2 o-rings
1.5 camber all around
4 deg caster
2 deg rear toe in
diff position: front high, rear low
Front Spool
Camber link: front-#3, with standard link, and rear: 5A
swaybars: Front .40, rear .30
Tires- Jaco Rubberz (Greens:Med firm)
Mazda Speed 6 body
