Anyways...the track I will be running at is nothing but tight turns, no sweepers or anything, do you think I should stick with the differential or learn to drive with a one way?

Well, it really depends on you, whichever you feel more comfortable with. Some people do like running one-ways or spools more, & when they do their lap times are at their best. But some others(I think I'm in this group) never quite get too comfortable with them, so we're actually best off with diffs. I noticed this in my car in Janurary at the Novak TC Champs, in practice, I tried runs with the one-ways & with diffs, & while it kind of felt fast with the one-ways, my lap times actually slowed down, so I went with all diffs & ran my best that way.....

yea ill get off that vB topic

well, what new motor do you think i should get for my TC3 :-/ i mean, i just want peoples opinion for a good 17T motor, thats below about $30-$40, and that would make my TC3 go faster and all, greatly My friend has a tamiya integra, and his used to go a little slower than mine. he got himself like a $20 19t motor and now it goes like...faster than mine

so does anyone suggest any good 17t less than $40 motors?

Actually, it's $160 for vB

But I'll lay off the subject...

Anyway, it's been a while since I've run my TC3... I never bought the one-way. Since I hope to start racing it again soon at a new track (of which I've only seen pictures so far ), I was wondering about what kind of track makes a good candidate for running a one way? Also, what kind of difference handling-wise can I expect vs. the regular diff (yeah, I know that braking/change of driving style will be an issue)?

Hockey07 - depending on where you buy it you can probably pick up a Trinity 19T Arcornite...or if you want fixed timing try the Orion Element.

both of these motors should be as fast if not faster then your friends motor.


TurnNBurn - in my opinion a 1 way is best suited for a med to large size track that flows real well. smaller/very tight tracks i don't think it's suited for.

Thanks, Nexus. In other words, if the track has many hairpins/tight turns, keep the diff? Do the same rules apply more or less to the solid axle?

julio dont even bother running the oneway .
the florida state series is wiorking on making them illigal next season.( being banned)
as far as when to use them !
when traction is very good and a lot of sweeping turns.
not to use them when traction sucks and there are to many hairpins or turns that almost require for you to actually use brakes .

Let me guess, speed... too many accidents? That's the reason I've heard as to why other tracks have banned them.

Default spur gear

i have a spur gear question, i started running a 19t class and it called for a lot of pinion, i ended up running a 72spur and 29 pinion combo but the motor will take more gear, like 72/31(2.48 ratio, 32mm rollout). this will work fine with rubber tires but when we go to carpet the foams will wear and i will need more & more pinion. with the 72 spur the chassis will just hold a 32 pinion, thats not gonna work after the tires wear past 60mm. i was thinking of using a smaller spur gear, what do you guys that run mod motors & foam use, a larger spur and super small pinions??

julio ever since they banned the oneway at the reedy race they been pushing it everywhere due to the close racing thats been happining there and everywere else that where going to try for the first time if its not a sucssesful program then we could vote out. but anyway a spool properly set up
is fater than a oneway and the car is more
controlable especially when you are battling out with someone you arent as nervouse because you know the car isnt going to whip on you.
youll basically have to try it to understand.

hyperformance you need to keep those 19t motores usually in the 7.5 to 8.0
final drive range get a gear chart for you re car with the final drive worked out.
and factor in the tire size. it would help if you would state what kinda car it is.
