I think the main idea is to combine the front spool with this center oneway to have better cornering speed.
without any diff action, i still believe the frontend will push. its just underbreaking the car will rotate as expected.

I see what you are saying, but what i was saying was since both one ways and spools are used to pull out of the corner, you would want to use the spool when you braking is important.

braking with a spool causes frontend slide, push... unless your breaking in the straight; with the steering pointed straight; the end result is car going straight.

(not using brakes) off throtle cornering with a spool has a very soft initial steering; slight push. on small track the car tends to slide alot (when holding the line), on throtle and off it just slides making acceleration benefits null; its almost like driving a drift car... bigger tracks the spool can be maximized, because brakes are rarely used.

Post question about the grease...

inside the oneways, can it be cleaned out and replace with something thinner like Tribo? Will this help or harm the action of the oneway; will this help to free it up a bit?

I actually use micro oil in my oneways.. hehe.. And they have lasted for 2 years. So I guess it's fine to use. Just be sure to keep them lubed up.

My bad, but I thought SD was "Black Special" carbon chassis. Yes, looking for SD "black special" to race on smooth prepaired asphalt.

ive had bearing failure (slipping)in the past with oil/silicone; it also attracts alot of dirt. why risk it?

I have it. I don't think theres any real benefit. aside from it being blue. it changes the internal ratio from 2.353 to 2.5.
