How do you pack the grease into the one way? coating the out drive cup with diff grease?

Tried spool and diff... sometimes it pushes and sometimes it pulls.. just not very consistent.. going back to give one way one more try this coming club meet.

thanks,

~Ming

Hey Ming.. What I do is remove out drives, Use thin long allen wrench and coat 1 way bearings with Losi grease thicker type. Then coat outdrives same and install. Doing this allowed to run 1 way with very aggressive driving style,sorta like foams and diff. Reall calms down the 1 way action and still has that 1 way power and feel for great steering. I know many that tried it and liked it.

Hi John,
Thanks for the tip, I like the idea very much.
Do You have experiences how long this treatment lasts?
We'll have a 24h endurance race this weekend, and if it can work for a few hours this can be the key for our success

best regards
Miklos

Not as thick as the Losi Brown grease that I believe John is talking about.

Later,

BTW, using grease on the T2'007 layshaft one-way bearings works well too.

A friend of mine recommended the same thing with packing grease into the one-way. Haven't tried it, but he highly recommended doing it.

I was driving front diff for over a full year since 2005. Yesterday is my first attempt on front 1way since than..... I simply dont know how to drive 1way car, and how to set it up anymore. Spin out in corner entry all the time.

I guess it's depend on how you drive and what you used to. I know some who simply can't drive 1way. So just give each a try and see which one you like.

I have always used a one-way when racing stock, but now, racing modified, spool's becoming more and more attractive to all drivers here in germany.

We race rubber tires on carpet and most of the drivers prefer spool over the one-way simply because you are able to brake, when fighting against another driver and spool is easier to drive.
It isn't slower on most tracks. You just have to know when and how to use brakes.

Sorry to bring up an old topic, but looking for an answer to handling differences.

Which diff is usually best for a wide open asphalt track? One-way or spool, or standard diff?

Currently, I'm using a one-way and it works well, but entering high speed corner it will try and spin out since only the rear end has braking, so I have to coast into most of the corners.

Thanks,
Paul

For a track like you described you will want to run a spool.

oneways are pretty much useless these days with the introduction of spool. Don't know why some kits still offer that out of the box. There are theories that oneways/center oneways give better top end since it absorbs F/R driveline differences. But 1 mph is not going to outweigh the advantage of stability you get from a spool/ball diff.

K Thanks. My car is a used XXX-S that I got last summer and started racing this summer. I'm new to the whole on-road thing and still figuring it all out. Next hobby order, I'll snag a Spool Diff and give that a shot.

Eventually I plan on upgrading to a TC5 but that will probably happen this winter at the earliest.
