Spool or a solid axle usually used for tracks that is slippery, small technical, or big wide tracks & tracks that needs braking. Thats for me...
A One-way is only a spool when on-power. Or not its not considered a spool. Usually I'll use a 1 way on small or mid size tracks with no need for braking for a hairpin.
Spool also suits a more aggrasive driving style.
