Default Front one way on asphalt?

Hey guys i'm running a stock cyclone.. (black version) and i'm running it on asphalt.. as for esc i'm running a gtb with a 5.5r.. the problem i'm having is that I cant brake at all.. everytime i touch the brakes i pretty much spin out.. thanks to the handbraking effect of the front one way.. my lhs doesn't have cyclone parts and i'm out of the country right now.. so getting a spool isn't really possible.. i was wondering if there was any setups for a front oneway car on asphalt to make it handle better on low speed turns.. on high speed turns which require no braking it handles like a dream, its the lowspeed hair pins and S turns i'm having problems with.. i pretty much spin out or "drift" through them... no doubt it looks cool but its not the fastest way to get around.. i've turned off drag brakes which helps.. but still not the best .. as for setup i'm following http://www.hbeurope.com/pdfs/setups/...ing_setup).pdf
works reasonably.. but not the best.. thanks!!

I seem to recall someone on these boards suggesting using a thicker grease in the onw way's to calm them down and stop the front end from being so loose that the rear won't stay calm.

when driving with a oneway you don't use the brakes that is why you are spinning out, sounds to me like you need to change your driving style, you can change the setup all you want but it won't help if you are using brakes with a oneway.

Try decreasing weight transfer to the front of the car with springs and droop. Don't use brakes at all. Also, just let off the throttle, coast a little and then turn. Try not to let off the throttle and turn at the same time, you'll be surprised at the results.

If you are going to use the brakes just dial down the effect in the speedo setup. You can change the "Initial" brake %. By default I think the setting is either 20 or 40% depending on what profile you are using.

Like I said you can adjust the car all you want but tendency of the car will still be to spin out when using brakes with a Front Oneway. What country are you in? Sounds to me like the way you drive would be best suited for a Spool, and you can get RC stuff pretty much anywhere in the world now.
