here in germany everyone used to use one-way the last indoor season (rubber on carpet).

This year there are drivers using spool and drivers using one-way both is fast and both is good to drive. It's just a matter of driving style /likings if you use wether the one or the other.

I prefer spool on most of the tracks we run simply because I like to be able to brake into a hairpin at the end of a straight.
Steering is not a problem at all.

I've been running the one way with the brushless motor to get some off power steering.
Tonight I'm going to try the spool but I'm good at clipping boards so we'll see in practice. I dont want to be replacing dog bone's every round.

Your force is out of tune there! The shorter and tighter the less the one way will be effective.

Usually you will want a oneway when the track is flowing and bigger!

@ Dawgmeat, it looks like a pretty flowing track. Look if you have a car thats fast with a oneway then it fits your driving style, we have found here on the carpet and even outdoors on asphalt that we are all faster with a spool.

We raced here in Florida for a long time with a no oneway rule. We all tried using oneways, we were fast but the cars were more consistant and faster with a spool.

And we are talking some of the best drivers in the country here. Even for newbies its more forgiving but I'd recomend for them a diff.



@ Juan A. I will catch you at the REEDY then if a oneway wins or send you a check for $3.00 so you can buy your self a beer!!!!
