Default 4wd front ball diff.....

I am running a kyosho zx5 and wondering about the front diff. I would rather run a spool I think but where I run is dry slick most of the time but really depends on the weather. For d.s. What would Be the best to use. Diff, spool or oneway? I have always run spools I'm my tc. Are faster if driven right? Like tc

IMO wheelers tend to push anyway so a spool is only going to hurt this. I've tried a one-way and personally breaking with a big mod motor was hard to do with only rear tires doing the breaking. I simply run a ball diff. and it works for me, agian IMO...

I tend to run my front ball diff a little tighter than the rear but not locked. (unless I'm too lazy to change the crunchy diff that week)
