I took out the center one-way and its better. It has a little torque steer but not much. Im also using an old futuba 9101 servo which is equvalent to an airtronics 737. Im thinking that the servo is bad cause I always have to adjust the steering trim to get the car centered. Im gonna put a digital KO 2144 in there and lets see what happens.

Arrow 2 way?

Why would you ever need 2 one way's? I would think the one on the drive shaft would actually help more since its not causing the drive shaft to move when you let off the throttle? Anywho... in any case - I think 2 is a bit overkill.... Lets get back to Diffs

There was a guy in Salinas that used to use a one way in the front and in the rear. He was very fast in the corners but.... no brakes!!!

Roger, are your ride heights the same, left vs. right?

Rich,

The last time my car was doing that it was one of the front CVDs. It seems that the plastic ones can break just enought to let one side of the drive pin out (by the hub). Take a close look. It only acted weird in tight corners (full steering throw).

We tried it on mine and it felt quite a bit like the Yok with the dual one-ways but "snappier"

Unfortunately it took so much bite off the rear that it was nearly undriveable.

However, it was kinda fun with only the shaft-one-way installed, regular diffs in front and rear.

Never tried it with solid front, mid one-way and rear diff, though.

With my tc3, droop set same, car balanced side to side, shock length set the same with calipers, no binding in the control arms or ball joints: I put the car on my tweak station and it sits perfect, but if I take my finger and push down on the center of the gear case, the rear compresses equally. With the front wheels on the beam with the level, when I compress it, one side goes down farther than the other. When I let go, it returns to perfect level. I tried switching shock/ spring assy from side to side, now other side goes down more, same as when on other side. I tried another set of springs and does the same. Can this be adjusted out with preload spacers, or should I look at something else? Thanks for any help.
Nitromike,
My guess is that the shocks were not built equally. Remove the shocks and the shock springs and compress them. They should rebound at the same rate.

Art: Yes, ride heights are the same. Well, I balanced the car and shimed up afew areas up front. I got the car used and the shocks were totally jacked up. So, I rebuilt the shocks and now they are silky smooth. Now, the car doesn't have any torque steer. I also changed the whole steering rack. Art, when is your next race at Salinas ? York, Mashiga, and myself are racing at your next race.

Linger, I think that was my problem. I went back and checked and the shock that was acting up had a little too much oil and wouldn't compress as far as the other. I reoiled and got them the same, does better now. Thanks.
