Come on, tell us which was best value for money then, including the cuda's or which was the worst car you've ever bought, could it be the Pro 3 oh wait I had one of them myself wasn't that bad, just not that fast either, spent too much on it just to get it to a reasonable wieght and reasonably fast outside, the front one way was the best thing I bought for it. Then when it came to indoors again I just didn't like it and prefered to try get my Lab working which was ok some weeks then without a setup change would be a pain in the arse to drive, so I've moved onto my best car I've ever owned, my Cuda
My first car was a Sport 2 though, sold that around a year ago for a club mate to use for spares for his Pro 2, was a challenge to drive indoors as I knew very little about setups then but it got me used to taming wild cars. I can often struggle along with a terribly over steery car and be maybe just a couple laps down now on the leaders, they try the car and say how the **** do you drive this? obviously not as well as I can when I have a more neutral setup but even though I'm not the fastest (yet) I can drive more variation.
For a while outdoors last summer my Pro 3 was having cvd problems and whilst I was waiting for titanium replacements I drove with 2wd, I put the diff up front to make things easy and then the diff melted itself so I put the front one way in, no brakes and 2wd was fun I still beat the bottom half of the field, I got very good at carrying speed and taking corners as wide as possible, infact some couldn't believe I was using a 15x4 and 2wd, although when I tried to get off the line the mad wheel spin for about 3 slow meters kind of gave the game away drove some very tidy races to get 5th's and 6th's over about 4 weeks racing, although there were a couple of retirements ahead and some of my closest competition didn't always turn up due to work. Still only lost 2-3laps on the fastest guys when I got a good run.

can't share the best value...but how about the worst. Like a jet powered Tamiya TA04. (it seemed to run quicker on JP 4 than JP 7)

LMAO, bet the engine didn't last long, that low to the ground it must be sucking in a hell of a lot of debri, not what a jet engine will like looks very well done though engine probably cost 1 or 2 thousand pounds looks so neatly done it doesn't look real you sure thats not a baked bean can at the front?

you mean the center one way? not many I would think, since the kit comes with a front one way diff and thats what most people use if they want the benifits of a one way. A center one way adds maybe a little effiecncy if you run both, but if you use only the center you don't get as many benifits but you still get the major draw back of no front brakes.
