Yes, but like everybody else has said, it is more of a setup issue. If you got from a one-way to a spool, the best thing to start out with is a softer tire and softer springs and lighter shock oil in the front, thats a starting point. If you have a traction roll problem with a one way, go to a spool without changing anything and you will take care of the traction roll issue without having to change setup usualy..... But if you have a track that needs a lot of stopping, hair-pin turns, use a diff not a spool, unless you need the on power steering when the track is very technical. It is best to take the time and test the 3, Spool,one-way and a diff to see for yourself the characteristics of each.
The fastest way is the one-way, but your setup has to be optimal. The easy way to drive is with a spool or diff because it gives you the control of having very good brakes. The spool is a handycap because once you get your car working with it, it is hard to go back to a one-way.......no more brakes!
Good luck and remember that any time you test different options, it will benefit you 10 times by having that knowledge. Don't get frustrated and take your time. All the options in the world won't help unless you know when and how to use the.
