Default Tamiya TB EVO 5 front 1 way

Hi, recently bought a TB Evo 5 car kit and i'm planning to transfer the front 1 way to the back and the rear diff to the front. So, will the rear diff and front 1 way fit in and run like normal? and, will it some how cause any effect to the front 1 way when i put it to the rear? T.I.A

Putting your diff in the front is no problem. But, the one-way unit only spins in one direction. It won't work in the rear of the car.

I believe you can put a (Front) 1-Way in the Rear. I`ve heard about a few guys out there have did it.

Just put it in where it will always Rotate Forward.

I don`t really know. I use Front and Rear Ball Diffs.

But.....Since you`re using that Set-Up; we can all learn from You. Try it and tell me(us) about it later.
-It looks like you`re looking for a Speed Set-Up.....?

Buy another aluminum diff joint set and JB weld them together and you will have your spool for the car.

I run a MSX MRE with the stock spool, I prefer a spool at the track I race and would like to try my EvoV more but, I have a difficult time running a one-way at my track.

Unless I have missed something... nobody makes a spool for the EvoV... has anyone used the JB Weld method to lock the stock EvoV one-way to make it a spool? Did you lock it with the drive cups intact?

just do the old-school trick with cardboard between the diff rings and the pulley. that's basically what losi did with their new slipper rings.

I managed to put the front 1 way in the rear and put it the other way so it will ony spin forward but the problem is i will have to turn the plastic case other way too, that means i;m not able to screw from the bottom to hold the protective case. So is it possible for me to run my car with open gear box? like other carkits? eg, barracuda R3 and other open gear kits

It's really not a good idea to JB weld together. But, you can make it bullet proof if tamiya offers a metal gear for the evo5. Use the metal gear and JB weld it together with aluminum outdrives.

Wait for a few......Tamiya will make a Spool(Solid Axle) for the Evo 5(I don`t really know why they haven`t made one already).
