Mine doesn't even lock anymore (light usage), the outdrives just spin on both sides, and the bearings are non-replacable you have to buy a whole new tube which isn't cheap. It was a waste of 40$ in my opinion.

I was contemplating calling them but honestly i don't even see myself usign the oneway, the spool works so well on most of my tracks although i am pissed that i have a useless device in my pitbox rumbling around.

oneways are fragile just by the design of them. If you hit stuff on power there's no where for that energy to go but to those little roller bearings inside of it.

Not so sure about that, I have not had a problem with mine, or the one that was in my JRXS. The worst ever....Mi2's. Would not make it thru one clean five minute run.

hay guys i am after some setup help i am currenty running the tim hamm low grip setup (uploaded below) the setup worked alot better than the current setup i was running but its still a little slipery on the rear i changed a few things with the below setup which did help a little

1) 30lb springs front (better)
2) removed rear sway (better)
3) rear shocks brought in 1 space (better steering)

Problem = still alittle lose at the rear (on power out fo courners) and limited steering but changing shock angle (rear) helped lots

sorry if i have not explained this very well still very new to setting up cars properly i am running RP30's (i can use diffrent ones) and racing on a small asplult track in the UK weather is not to warm and running 13.5t brushless spedd passion setup

if anyone can give me some pointers on some things to try next time i race to solve the issues i have as the car still feels very loose on power comming out of the courners and i really could do with a bit more steering. i have set the speed controler to its lowest punch setting

any tips/pointers greatly appericated
