on drag cars they use spools and in the pits you see them trying to turn and you see the cars not turning well .
they lauch great but dont turn worth a sh!@. if you own a spool put it on the front like you normally do make a slow speed figure 8 with max dual rate then put on a regular diff and do it again then you see how the size of the figure 8 gets smaller.
so it realty if you arent drag racing dont think about it in the rear!
but then again they are running wide tires in the rear and very skinny tires up front, our 24mm ones have less traction(less footprint), so the traction would be evened out front to rear. some nitro guys do this in sedan and 1/8th scale(with a one-way up front)
personally i asked someone(i forgot who, Josh, Torrance, Cory? oh well, one of the fast guys) right around the time of the reedy race about a spool in the rear, and they said that the car would have no stability what so ever, and would not help much but possibally hurt more with just no rear traction.
