Default mtx-4 front one way or differential

So which do you think is the better option. From what I am told the one way enables better cornering but the diff will give 4 wheel braking into the corners instead of flipping ends. My track is 250ft by 70 ft. I know what the one way is like but I wonder if the diff would be better...

Here is my track

from the looks of it, a front spool will be the way to go.

I have run this track with both the one-way and gear diff in the front of my Mugen MTX-3. With my setup, I have found that I can corner this track better with the diff in the front of my car. However, I use 50,000 wt diff oil in the front diff to slow its action enough to where it is like a semi-spool. Only the fast guys like Ron Atomic, Todd Bath, and Larry Pryor can really manage this track very well with the one-way.
