King-G: I really don't see it as a problem either, but I guess we cant argue with his results.

I keep hearing about all the Corally guys there are downunder, where are they all? Why don't they hit this message board to get more activity on this thread?

I myself know others who drive Corally and just arn't the chatboard types- I'm sure there are quite a few like that.

This is to any of you guys who use the front one-way.

How durable is it? Have you had any failures with it? I've been thinking of trying one this year, but don't want to end up with a $60 paperweight if the thing breaks.

I have one and it's been durable- the problem is one side isn't as free as the other....this creates a 'tweak' issue that hurts it on smaller tracks but i'm able to not notice it on big smooth tracks. When you order yours talk to the guys and see if Corally have resolved this issue and ask them to test one over the phone before shipping to you.... How do you like your car when you use the center one way? do you have better lap times using it? Try it before getting the front one....

MikeR: see the thing is, I have stuck with the adjustable center one way because I race at three different local tracks. Small, Med large, and large sizes. I kept the oneway unlocked for the Med large and Large tracks, but locked it up for the smaller one. My times with the one way unlocked at the large tracks was always better than with it locked. While the heavy breaking needed at the small track didn't allow the use of a one way. Now, though, I have a very tricked out Schumacher AxisPro that I plan to run at the small track, because it kicks the crap out of my C4.1 in the turning department.

So that leaves me the option of adding the front one-way to the C4.1. So I decided to see what kind of experiences you guys had with the front one way to see if I would spend my money on that, or get some other stuff for the car.

Darkseid--

When I ordered my 4.1 I got the front oneway at the same time. Mine was almost completely locked on one side and free on the other. I took mine to a machine shop and had the bearing pressed out of the tight side, then we relieved the hole on the outdrive on a collett lathe, then pressed the bearing back in. After that, the oneway was fine.

If you can make sure the guys at Corally will hand check the oneway so that both sides are free before they ship, you'll be fine.

I should also point out that the Corally USA guys did offer to swap the oneway for another if I wanted, I was in a bit of a hurry and went the machine shop route instead.

My oneway has been rather durable so far, I have had it for around 4-5 months.

I had a big scare when during routine maintenance I was cleaning the oneway bearings with motorspray to re-lube them...I found out the hard way that this type of bearing doesnt hold the rollers in place without any grease (this isnt a problem when in the car as the outdrives are a firm fit.)

I was washing it out, and looked on my pit table to see all these rollers going everywhere!!...this was at the Victorian state titles, and I had no replacement..so I then proceded to grab each roller, smear it with oneway grease and put it back in place, I didnt lose a single roller and it has worked flawlessly over the following 3 months..

the other Corally drivers in Aus mustnt be big on the message board scene, or they mustnt know about it..I'll spread the word!

I reckon oneways are dodgy fullstop. There is so much load on them that they can be fragile but they are faster! The Schumacher oneways are similar to the Coarally ones with roller bearings and I wish i had put my rollers back in like you King G when they fell out! I threw mine away!

i had to remove my oneway last Sunday in Canberra...the left hand side oneway had failed and was causing a huge amount of drag and pulled the car to one side in a straight line (at speed!)

When the NSW Indoor track was in operation, i once put a oneway in a TC3...it lasted 2 laps before it broke! Everyone then said " i told you so!", it was a common problem!

So it seems to me that the Corally one way is pretty much like all the others out there. Fast..........when it works!

I think I'll stick with the shaft one way for now.

Hi guys,..how was everyones weekends racing/testing?..

I finally had a day at the track yesterday, 2 months seemed like an eternity, but I was soon circulating almost on pace.

It seems our new layout is requiring a much harder spring rate, and different shock mounting f/r to allow faster transitioning between corners in the tighter sections..I ran some things yesterday which I have never done, and they seem to work well..

I changed the lower shock mounting position on the rear to the hubs, and layed the tops in to the 3rd hole..and used the lower mounting point for the shock tower which raised the tower to allow the correct ride height..

all in all this was unfamiliar territory for my as Ive never used this geometry in the rear..

has anyone else been running this type of setup?

Well, I'm about to totally revamp my electronics gear. Radio, charger, servo, batteries, etc.....

Its going to take a good bit of practice to get used to the new gear. Especially with that new high speed servo. All I need now is a little warm weather and a good clean parking lot to practice in.

Good Luck to me finding either of those around here right now.

King-G: So are you going to keep that setup or was it just an experiment?

we are racing in the first round of the season this weekend, so If all goes well I'll be sticking with this setup, or at least very close to this setup, as we require a car which changes direction very quickly, and stays flat in the corners..

has anyone here tried swaybars on a c4.1?..if so, what did you use? and how were they mounted?
