Many top drivers use one-ways and brakes ( usually they bake last second before entering there apex allowing them to get back on the throttle much sonner then the coast technique) if I am side by side with you going into a hairpin and use the coast through method I will exit in front of you giving you two choices A. drive into the back of me getting penalized and put in the box or B. Using your own brakes to prevent a wreck and then try and get by me which will now be difficult as I now see you are not versed in out braking and I can easily take your line away from my new position. I am not trying to be a jerk or anything but just pointing out there are going to be situations where you will need both skills.

Out in front maybe coast and carry speed but coming up through the pack out brake, take the line move onto the next guy.

personally, i set no brake on my esc. i use all finger control, and still hardly use brakes. but my course is pretty open and fast. it has tight turns, but its a wide track. so i go from the outside of the track then cut through to the tightest part of the turn and end way on the outside of the track again. alot like real street bikes and most GT races. but thats just me. thats what type of driver i am.

Well like I said it depends from a driver each of us have different driving style. For me not using a break is just me co'z I'm not used to it and that's how I drive my car.

"breaking" is never a good thing. BRAKING is sometimes. I usually set it on my controller to find a smooth consistent feel around the track. Dial some in and run laps, then take it away and run laps. You'll find a happy medium where the car and you feel better.

From what I've read, I haven't notice anyone post this yet.

When using a oneway entering a turn, you often spinout upon braking. Follow the same line with a spool and you drive right through the corner without a problem. I think braking is used according to car setup.

You replace the drive axle blades far more by using a spool/oneway as opposed to a open front diff. The spool also kills your tires and motor seems to get a bit warmer, but you get through and don't seem to spinout.

Some tracks I think require you to use a spool, while others are fine with a oneway or open diff.

Now that's some good advice...using common sense and to tune to the days track conditions. There is too many variables to give the original post a complete answer. $0.02.

Not true buddy, he used a spool in the last 2 worlds (Florida nd Italy). By using a spool you can go in deeper into a corner to defend your line.
In modified these days braking is very important to have and the ones who master the art of braking will be quicker.

You can still brake with a one way you just do before you turn rather then after unless you are needing a little help getting more steering in which case you then tap the brakes to bring the back end out.
