Mike- It's the same front oneway as the EC. There's probably not going to be a center oneway and I've never seen the point of a center oneway to begin with. It seems like oneways are a dieing breed for anything other than rubber tires on carpet.

After seeing Kevin Kane's Mi3 last night on carpet.....ditch the oneways all together. It's all about the spool on asphalt and carpet

Good running Kev! You Mi3 was sweet even when you tried Tokyo drifting

I gave up on front one-ways a while ago. I've just never been able to get a front one-way in an electric car to feel like the front one-way in my nitro car. In my nitro car, I couldn't imagine driving the car without it, but in my electric cars, they just never seem to feel right.

So for me, it'll either be the spool or the diff up front.

At our indoor asphalt track the front oneway works better than a spool. WYD and myself has tried spools and oneways and found the oneway to work better at our track. But we run a spool almost everywhere else.

Thanks.......yeah, I don't think Schumacher is "COOL" enough to use the cheapy Tamiya bling bling alum turnbuckle that cannot even take a hit....

Also..just remember I still have your 40T pinion...when you need it, please PM me and I can drop it off to your house when you are home...otheriwse, I can give you back the next time we are going to WH (I am sure I will have my 58T pinion by that time...LOL)

Yes, in fact I'm serious. One way layshaft... you've never heard of those?

Thanks Jon,
Yeah- I can see the trend favors spools. I like both spools and double oneways. Sometimes for me though oneways helps me drive smoother/ less aggressive The double oneways helps free up the driveline just a tad off power.

Are you racing anywhere this weekend?

Kevin Kane ran his spool on last night racing...ran a 10.2 laps (27/5:05 overall)....my Mi2 with Lipo did a 10.9 laps with 1-way......I will definitely try the SPOOL next time...1-way was good @ Trackside (bigger and wider track)...for tight and long track, need to try diff and spool.

I've been really sick this week. I just got back home after I tried to go to work and they sent me home again. So I don't think so. Probably next Saturday at BCR. You get the car built yet?

Aw man- take care then! Trying to build up the car a little this week. I'm like Randy C-takes me 2 or 3 weeks to make sure I have the ultimate car built up
