A spool will not make you faster in all situations. IT all depends on the track and what the surface is.
On tigher tracks, a ball diff is faster. On high grip tracks such as carpet, a diff is always faster again.
Actually, you will always be faster with either a one-way or a diff than you will be with a spool. Meaning that if a spool is faster than a diff, on the same track the one-way would be faster than the same spool. And if a spool is faster than a one-way, on the same track a diff will be faster than the same spool.
And actually the only time you ever see spools on the track are when one-ways are not allowed such as the Reedy Race.
