Default oneway

hi guys got a race comming up and i have been told that for that track a one-way would be best. i have been racing for 9 months and for 8 months of that time i have been running the safe option a diff. but now as iam getting better i felt that i needed to go faster so i needed to change to a spool iam getting better with a spool and slighly more consistant per lap but not as consistant as a diff but fastest lap is much quicker . so what do you have to do to drive a oneway right? e.g a spool i turn in early and power around it. also when running a oneway do you use the oneway pully or the fixed one cheers stephen

I have found that the fixed centre pulley works quite well on carpet.(Assuming you are running on carpet.) The only other thing I change when using a one-way is the ackerman. I change it to 4mm.

I'm still learning rubber carpet but I found that a oneway is almost a second a lap quicker than a spool but the spool is much easier to drive.

Hey Larry are you guys running rubber tires at Horshem as a class or just practicing for the Snowbirds? Think that would be alot of fun to run rubber tires on carpet.

Elliott pretty much hit the nail on the head, I only ever run a spool on carpet when using low wind motors (7t) purely because most of the time brakes are needed to some extent. If your running stock or 19t then a 1 way with a fixed centre pulley will be the quickest in my opinion.

Hey Stephen - I run rubber stock all the time at our club. The one-way is definitely the way to go for Stock. Once you get used to it, it will allow you to maintain your momentum and corner speed a lot better out there.

The car will initially feel like it has way more (too much) steering. You can dial this back a bit on the radio and then soften up the rear end of the car a bit. When it's working, it will have really aggressive steering, but not oversteer. It will take some tweaking to get it right for your carpet. I find that I usually start with the rear shocks laid down pretty far and then stand them up a hole as traction comes up on the track.
