there are pictures a few posts back, and a spool is just a solid diff, no action at all.

Default spools

who is making the spools and how can I go about getting one? I will not be attending the reedy race, but would like to purchase one of these spools from whoever is making them.

Peter, give us your views on using a spool. I understand the benefits of it, but what are the disadvantages? I tried one on my R and I notice a lot of vibrations when turning, it seemed very hard on the drivetrain

Mark I will put a note in the file I am keeping could you please send me an e-mail to:

dgarber@unitedwholesale.com

After Reedy I will be helping Troy get all the shipping addresses so he can send out to all who want them.

Troy Crabtree is making the spools you might remember him from Mini last time you were out at TA he had a good scrap with Whip in 01

Izzy spot on, turn-in can get mushy I add a touch of camber in front to help and also add a touch of anti-squat in the rear to help rotate the car.
It gives the yank of the one-way out but soft in you can brake way late in a real dicey situation but also cook the corner by doing the braking.

from my experience with a spool, it has the same characteristics of a one-way when you get back on power (meaning that it will steer hard to the direction that you are turning). but unlike the one-way, the spool allows the front wheel to help in braking, which is the reason that the reedy race is now run with a "no one-way" rule. the spool will however scrub alot of speed in the high speed corners, such as a sweeper.

this is just what i have noticed when using spools.

i'd use the diff, but use what YOU feel comfortible with.
don't even worry about how well you do, just have fun man. and try not to crash. good luck

Default Evo3

Hello everyone,

First of all, I would like to thank everyone that's posted on this forum. Most, if not all, of the information shared here has been very helpful to me. I've been reading this thread since my LHS informed me of its existence and that I can find the answers to most of my questions regarding the Evolution 3.

I've had my Evo3 for a little over a month now and must admit, it it the easiest car to drive well that I've ever owned. My RC experience has been limited to only Tamiya though. My other rides are a totally hopped up TB-01 and a TA-04. Both these cars have carbon fibre chassis and P2K2Pro motors installed.

Comparing the 3, the EVO is the easiest to drive quickly. And this has been my first experience with a front one-way. Even with all the problems that have been encountered with the front one-way, I prefer it to a regular ball diff which are installed in my other 2 cars.

The fixes that have been shared by other members on here have really helped me in avoiding those same problems. Your comments and recommendations have helped me to understand how to set up the car properly for the track that I run at.

I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to all of you. Again, thank you!

GTMilenko, thanks, but I meant the One-Way Gear, not the regular ball diff gear. I think the One-Way gear has a larger center hole than the regular gear, but I don't know how big.
