only for the front... as with the one-way you need alot of practice runnng a spool. also be prepared to replace more parts.... running a spool is very hard on the drivetrain.

The spool is usually for the front only.

I got my Delrin outdrives yesterday and haven't yet fitted them (I got them from my LHS, so pretty much any model shop in the UK should have them now).

I'll probably fit them next week sometime and let everyone know how they go.

I didn't like the Losi Pads because they use sandpaper that will eventually leave sand inside my diff case and get into my gears. I guess I'll just tighten my diffs until HPI or someone else comes out with one. Thanks

Default Hara's set up

It shows on Hara's set up from the nationals he just won that he used a spool up front.

Did the rules not allow for a one way or was it clearly his choice to use a spool as he thought it was the best choice?

This directed to Zombie or anyone for that matter.....I was looking through the latest RC Driver mag.....and well any way they have a spool in there from the MRC touring car which is a shaft drive car. And its only like 19 bucks retail and with it being MRC it should be metric so has anyone tried this spool to see if it will fit a Pro-4? It looks really close but I dont run a spool as I race mainly with foam tires but this might be something for you rubber tire guys to try out. Just a thought until one is made from HPI or someone else for that matter.
