I have been using the 3 racing carbon fibre chassis for a while now, I LOVE IT. I bought the kit here in Australia and have only had one problem.The alloy rocker arm pivot points bend when you have a crash. To fix this i have made a carbon fibre brace that goes between the arms and i just screwed it in the top, Works a treat. I will post photo's soon to show you.Hope this helps.

Won't work... as to get the oneway to fit in the rear, you'd have to flip it over, which would mean the rear one runs in reverse (Freewheels under power, locks up off power), which would give FWD on power, and RWD off power

If you want to drift it, try as the guys have said, a spool in the rear, with the one way up front... that will make the rear step out no end

I've installed the spool for the rear. Well, the car rear wheels still lock up when I release my throttle. At first my frds thought my spur/pinion were placed too close but I've adjusted, no use. Belt tension is ok. Think I'll check my center pulley....

check your drag brake on your ESC

Or check your bearings.
Or check your rims, make sure they aren't binding with the ball cups.

I've checked the wheel hubs, dogbones, spool, belt, center pulley. All seems fine. ESC I've done the reset and start up again. Transmitter setting, I've done all the checks. Still, I think it's the ESC or Transmitter. Maybe my motor. Ha! Bummer..

Try giving it a little creep (forward throttle trim) maybe 5% and see what happens.

remove the dog bones and see if the rear tires spin freely.

edit: are you running brushless? lipo?

It's definitely nt the dogbones cause I tool the rear belt off the center pulley and pull. Rear spins fine. I took the dogbones off the spool and pulled the belt. It still has the tension.

Sounds an odd one... What exactly is happening?

You say you've checked;

Wheel bearings
Axle Bearings
CV joints (make sure the pin isn't partly out)
Diff
Wheels (make sure they aren't catching on anything)
ESC settings
Transmitter settings
Centre pulley bearings.

Best thing to do is start from scratch, and work through in a logical manner to see what the issue could be. Start with the rear hubs, then rebuild the car up, testing each link in the drivetrain in turn, too make sure it doesn't bind.

By the way, what ESC/Motor are you using?

HiH

are you testing it with the car on a stand, or out doors on the ground (ie, no load vs loaded).
If it's on the stand, then the wheels will stop quickly, simply because there is no momentum keeping the drivetrain moving... best to try it on the ground first.
