Default Question about one way set up?

Only had my xxx-s g+ for about 4 months, I've raced about 5 or 6 times and won the A main in stock at my local track the last two times. I'm getting the set up pretty close, right now I'm fighting some understeer on power exiting the corners. Car is great getting in, rotates good, just not enough on power steering when exiting the corner. I currently have diffs in the front and rear and I am putting a one way in the front for this week, will this fix my understeer problem on power like I think it will? Thanks in advance.

CWank23...the shunts are the littles wires that are attached to the brushes...if they are getting hung up from being folded over the hoods like the article says..it could be taking the slack out of these little wires & preventing the brushes from reaching the comm...you want the brushes to always touch the comm. As the brushes wear down from usage, they get shorter, & if they are shorter & the shunts are hung up, it's not going to allow the shorter brushes to move in & touch the comm. Hope this helps. You can bend those wires into other positions...try it & see if you get a difference?

cut off the screw mounting tabs and solder them directly to the brush hood

Default NON-oneway or spool Setups for Asphalt

Virtually all the setups posted for open Asphalt tracks call for a spool or a one way.

From what I have read, spools are very hard on CVDs and more difficult to drive. One ways are a lot more difficult to drive.

Since my still learning to drive well, I think I will stick with a front diff.

I need a setup for using a front diff on asphalt, I did not find one on the Losi site.

or
I need to know what adjustments to make to spool or oneway setups.
-----------------------------------------------------
Best I can tell, asphalt setups generally do not use sway bars, or the offset rear hubs, they do use low roll center and 2f in front and low roll center in back with either 0r or 2r, and the 4% carrier in the front, shock oil and springs are different on every setup.

I am using super hard coated aluminum outdrives from HG. I don't think you can get them anymore though. They are super pimp if you can !!!

imjonah- you can still use my set-up if you are running a front diff. The spool I have found is easier to drive than the diff, and also it gives you more forward torque. And if you spend the extra 20 or so on the steel cvd's you will never notice the wear. By the way, there will never be a diff going out and that is one less thing you would have to worry about. If you are bound and determined not to run a spool, then you can move the front shocks out one and run blue springs all the way around, you will not need the rear swaybar either, also you will want to run -1.5mm of rear camber to help the rear end stick more.

The reason you don't find many diff set-ups is because people have smartened up and started running spools. They are the fastest and most consistent to drive. The first set-up that was posted (Ron Rossetti's) would be way off. The second one is closer but they are both for low turn mod, so you will have to tweak them for stock or 19t. The one I posted is for stock.

No the XXXS are longer. If you only want to run the regular hex drive wheels then I would get the conversion kit made be RPM for the Street Weapon. It comes with the larger size hex's and the proper offset to run the more common wheels out today.

A one-way is different to drive than a diff. Be sure to have enough practice time to get used to it if you choose to run it. Also, in general if your having a sight push out of the turn you can try to Increase the rear toe in as this will help the car to " finish" the turn.

Default Thanks tc3stocker

Thanks for the addtional details, that was precsiely the information I needed. I think I will go with the spool after reading your responce. I have a bunch of steel outdrives sitting around so that should be no problem.

Default Wheel wrench?

I have no tools for my XXX-S. What size is the wheel nut? The sockets I have seem to be too big or too small.
Also what inserts are people running?(Soft,med,hard). We run on a very smooth slick track.
Thanks Eddie
