You could always buy a nice second hand Barracuda R2 Xenon Stage 3
$480 plus postage may sway me to parting with it, but only maybe
It's going so well at the moment and it's had so much cash sunk into it.
Had to Pro 4's turn up at the club tonight, they didn't run them in races though since they had one ways in and one ways don't go well on wooden floors
I checked the one ways freeness and it seemed to have a bit more drag than my cuda did when new, not had the one way in for a long time so no idea what it's like now.

He hasn't even told you?!?

I know this sounds a bit awkward, what would I expect to happen if i switch the oneway at the rear and a diff at the front? Would it be twitchy and most importantly would it work?

I tried an FF car (with rear tractionless), it is pretty much easier to take corner deeper. I just havent tried it with touring because of the wheelbase and speed are much difference.
Why I ponder this idea is to get the simplest change of setup between tight and open track.
I'll try it when I redo my bearings. Thanks!

Well my thinking was that the rear would still bites same as when the 1way was at the front. it is different compare to 'free wheeling'. Anyway that's just my thinking...gotta try it.
