But I find that when brake, the front wheel can not be stopped.
And if the inner rear wheel leave the ground, the whole car will not be braked.
So how to deal with it?
And which type is best?
1. front one way
To simple things out, here is what I feel and want you to think it as simple as this...
1.Front one way - once you are a good rc driver, and ready to big time race on a big or bigger track, then use it, you need a lot of practice cause like you had experienced, the car will have little to no braking...but lap time can be faster....(can be, not necessary)
2.planetry diff - anyone can handle that, just need to use the right diff grease....for TC, front diff usually use thicker (like 50,000) grease then rear...rear use like 5,000 to 10,000, go to LHS and ask the different degrees of diff grease.
3.ball diff - same as gear diff, but the diff motion can be ADJUSTABLE, not need to use different type of diff grease...but required daily maintenance...look at it as a UPGRADE of gear diff. works the same....anyone can handle that.
4.solid axis - same thing, anyone can handle that, perfect for small tight track and LOW TRACTION track.........no diff grease, no balls to adjust, nothing........suppose to give you better turning, but pretty HARD on the front tires, axle cups and dogbones, you might experience snapped or twisted dogbone if you use a lot of braking....
