Sorry guys, this is 'barracuda from alex' with kai chassis.
They sure look very much like TC3s.

I really don't think there is anything wrong with the standard cvd's on the FT. My plan was to replace them as needed with the composite b/c I kept hearing about the problems with the blues. It's been 5 months and I haven't replaced a single one!

I recently got the center one way, but I have not run with it yet. People really seem to like the one ways. It's my understanding that the center oneway is easier on parts breaking and a little less noticeable when driving. Maybe not as fast??

Just make sure you get a really good servo and take care of the steering rack. The servo was the best upgrade I have made yet.

ummm, not for me. However, running more rear toe will make the rear more planted and thus you may be able to drive the car harder. Less rear toe will make the car twitchier and more corner speed if set up correctly, that's only if you can drive it consistently.

Look for tc3 upgrades. It replaces the rear shaft input by the spur.

People seem to like them in these parts. Still haven't tried mine yet. I hear it is faster, but doesn't feel very different.

Default One way question

I'm finally going to try a one-way at the next race. Is there any set up change that must be made to the car? or do you just have to change your driving style?

the guys at my track use the same setup either way, but i am not the best one to say as I haven't run with mine yet (tomorrow night!)

I used TPhalens setup for Kinetix (tight indoor ozite) without the one way and it worked awesome.

anyone else??? I need to know also...

I didn't have to change the driving style or setup.
It just ran faster through the corners. I didn't even have as much oversteering as I was worried.

I'm 100% for front one way.

But again, I'm just a weekend racer.

I read it from a board that most of European, Japanese, Korean factory drivers use front one way and most of US, other South East Asian country factory drivers use front diff.

I don't know if it's true or what this means but seems interesting.

I think it's just driver's driving style and preference.
