Use one ways if you are running stock and rubber tires on carpet. You'll need the corner speed. You could use a spool but it binds the drivetrain and tears up cvds pretty quickly. Also the spool will push bad if you don't have your car setup right. The tight diff will give you more offpower steering but less onpower as it will slip just a slight amount. If you are running foams never run anything but a diff in your car.

There is an informative roll center article that futureal wrote in the latest xtreme r/c mag.
Thank you James and everyone else for your feedback. I will checkout that article.

Thanks

I was really struggling with the Yokomo SD in mod was usually 2 laps off the pro mod pace at SoCal, first time out with the Losi I missed the win by less than a half second... It's way easier to drive, and the same setup works pretty much everywhere it seems.

i have noticed a problem on the front end of my car where the right front shock only compresses about 90% of what it should do. I have checked the shock off the car and this is not the problem, i have also checked all the turnbuckles, blocks etc and the problem is not with them either in my opinion. does anyone have any suggestions as too what the problem may be

Check that you're shock connections aren't binding. If you tighten the upper mount too much you can cause them to bind up.

Make sure that your camberlink ball cups aren't binding on your castor block.

Make sure that your CVD isn't bottoming out inside your diff/one-way.

Does the suspension move freely through the full range of travel when you take the shock off of the car?

Also might want to check to make sure the CVD pin is still in place and not sliding out.
