if you're drifting and you HAVE to mak the spool to keep running... make the spool and run it in the rear with the diff in the front...

depending on your type of "racing" ... do you mean drift racing??? for drifting and drift competitions i'd say go for it... personally i have only done drifting a few times for fun but ideally i think front one-way rear spool would be a good setup if done right...

for road course a differential is definitely more optimal...

diff in the rear or both? because ive heard front one-ways can help on a street course.

diff in the rear... on a "street" course with decent grip a one-way is usually the hot ticket.
