I don't run a oneway at present, our track is tight and technical - 2 diffs.
When I have used it I found that breaking while tuning was a recipe for disaster.
It gives you a hell of a lot of turn in.
It allows you to power on earlier in the turn and the spool action under power effectively pulls you out of the corner.

I understand what your getting at. If you turn the wheels with your hands you get that effect (this is off power). However, if you turn the shaft it's a spool with no slip (this is on power).
It is easier to see when messing with a belt drive car as the shaft is rather hard to turn.
Hold both front wheels with your hands, and pull the car forwards with the rears touching the ground and you will feel it. They are definetely locked when the power is down.
