Preston, try Hodge's setup from lasy year's Novak race. It's excellent. I was able to hang with Ron and Dave last week but made some driving errors. I use his exact setup.

It should. I only take my oneway out for one race a year and that's on asphalt. I couldn't tell you how the car feels without it.

I ran a diff at Trackside last year for a few nights and didn't like it. The car didn't flow as well, it didn't carry as much corner speed as when I put the one-way in. If you plan on racing at Trackside on a regular basis, I'd say spend the money and pick up the one-way

Anyone have a good setup sheet of the XXXS for racing on asphalt outdoors on a large track?

Thanks a lot!

Go there and look for setups on the Tamiya track from the Reedy race. I think there's a lot of them.

Agreed, I've tried the diff, and the spool at Trackside, and with rubber tires, none drive as well as with a one-way.

whats the difference between a locked spool, and a oneway, and would spool be good at Road Rage, kinda the same as trackside.
also, with that new hpi body, is that really that new, or are the proline ones the same?? Scrad- check your pm...
