Default Front Solid one-way

Does anybody here tried a solid front oneway? And can you use your break with this setup? What's the benefit?

Do you mean a locked front diff? If so try looking for set ups for your car and a spool (aka locked diff)

NO! I'm not talking about the front spool. It's a one way with solid outdrives. Both of the wheels will spins forward a the same time. Both outdrives is connected together. I seen one on ebay it's called "Atomic Solid One-Way Joint"

I will be trying mine soon, don't think brakes would be that good. It will brake the same as a regular one way, all rear.

Not exactly, as having both front wheels connected should reduce the amount of entry steering, even though they freewheel like a one way.

I was just thinking about that. Well I just need to get one and find out my self what is this good for. But it will probably work same as the regular one way, But maybe it will make your car a little stable getting off corners.

Whether they are connected or not doesn't affect how much brake you can use it will still brake in the rear only. As far as the steering characteristics I agree, it should steer in less than a full oneway.

On a belt drive wouldn't this be like running a spool with a centre oneway.

tried it on my 415. yes you can use brakes with a spool. but i never use brakes anyway. drives pretty much the same as a one-way. nothing drastically different.

Atomic Multi-Drive for MTX-4

This pretty cool. You can have a oneway or a spool without taking switching anything.

The multi-diff for the Xray cars has the same option, full one-way, or a locked one-way which connects the front tires but still lets them spin free under deceleration. It drove like the regular one-way to me, still could not use very much brake.

all it does is eliminate the independent movement during braking or off throttle

so durring bracking or entracnes your car will be more stable but the tire grip during cornering will be reduced as it will understeer abit more

If it will turn in and out like a spool, but you don't get the front breaking of the spool, why not just use a spool?
