Default One way or Spool

What is the difference between a one way and a spool? I know a one way gives more corner speed, but what is a spool and what are the benefits of a spool? What track conditions are a spool best on?

Thanks

well, a spool rhymes with pool so i guess it should give your car more underwater speed. Get a one-way i already told u KEMAL.

for most track conditions a spool is the choice for asphalt racing.a oneway is good for a real fast sweeping high traction track.you can get a oneway to work well but it is usually a handfull if the car setup is off.if you get a spool car set up correctly you will be faster on most all normal somewhat tight track layouts.

My spool ran AWESOME in my JRXS when I had it dialed in. Never tried it on any other car.

If you want to try the effect of a spool, just tighten the diff right up so it virtually becomes spool.

I am running a one-way diff and a rear ball diff on my cyclone S. Cornering is so much more smoother with the one-way than the spool. However, when I brake on the straight, my car spins. Is my car tweaked? or is it due to the one-way diff? BTW, I am not running the one-way pulley.

Witha one way you have no front brakes - so the trick is don't brake! the back end locks and throws you off - as you found. you let the motor braking slow the car or have a very small amount of braking availabl and use it at low speeds to get the car round hairpins quick. you'll find it helps you turn in very well off power as the backend slows and tucks the car in.
