Default One Way Drive

What purpose does the one way drive serve? Call me ignorant, but new to the on-road.

The basic idea, is that when the car are off-throttle, the front wheels freewheel. This way grip aint used for acceleration/braking, but all the grip are avaible for steering. Result: Faster cornerspeed.

The downside is, tha car can only brake with the rear wheels. Big risk of spinng out, if one touches the brake. Therefor they are best suited for high grip tracks.

So they aint for beginners. And usually they require quite a lot of traction. However, at this point, it aint unusual to gain 1-2 more laps pr. 5 minutes race.

omalley, I see you're from minneapolis. Ever race at TCHR??? If you do, someone there would probably loan you a oneway to try it if you'd like. Which car do you run? If xray, I've got one you could use.

Cole, Ain't ain't a word.
