With a one-way diff, it's possible to apply throttle way sooner.... but not with a one-way pulley.

How do you guys determine when to run the relative heavy one-way diff and when to run the light weight ball diff?

Ahh, I've only just started experimenting with 1-ways.

Before I ran 2 TA03s, one had a 1-way layshaft in front with
dual-diffs (like a belt-drive car with layshaft one-way).

Then I mucked around with an old Yok, with 1-way diff front
vs balldiff just to see how that handled, but I only had 1 Yok.
This diff type of 1-way drives very differently to the TA03.

Spent some enjoyable hrs on Sat at the track... seeing which
ways of driving is quicker around the track with 1-way Evo3.
Now thinking of testing to go see what's the real difference
between 1-way or front diff on the Evo III... & when got time
to pull the 2nd Evo III off the shelf and put front diff into it.

I prefer to do back-to-back testing with 2 identically setup cars.
Its the only scientific way to discover what the actual change is.

Hello guys,

I use one ways only on large tracks. On small/tight tracks although sometimes it is possible to use one, the fact that the other drivers don't use one makes it extremely difficult to use it!

I like using one way but I have trouble braking with it, so I usually let off throttle earlier. I have read that some of you actually brake! How do you do that???

Thank you

Nick

I'm only running with one-ways. I almost dont brake, but I find it very helpful limiting the amount of brake on my radio. In my case I limit the maximum brake to 80%. That's in stock class, rubber tires on carpet. Tight and technical track. If your radio got an ABS, it'll help also.

Hello Cole,

I also reduce the brake, 30-40%, but I was thinking what should I do in order to be able and use brakes with one way!
I usually hit brakes hard, if I train myself to be smoother on brakes will I be able to brake with one way?

Thanks again


Nick

Sorry, I dont know.... I only brake to avoid crashes in front of me, meaning almost no braking...

yes. oneways are so tough on slippery tracks. think consistency. a oneway will give you a few tenths, but piping it will deduct whole seconds. you decide.

same argument for carpet. yes, people are running them, but most of us that have a good setup get plenty of cornerspeed with double diff setups on ozite. ok, most of them.

Since you never really know until you try, I run a MR4 special and have experimented a little with one ways/diffs this summer and have made the following observations
begining with a stock set-up and stock motor.I always set throttle trim so the car rolls forward when set on ground and hold brakes at the start.

The double one way car seemed to perform best on a track with wide lanes where very little braking is required and high surface traction was present. From stock I went to a heavier rear spring, 2-degree toe-in rear carrier, longer camber links, and front sway bar. The 2 degree carriers and front sway bar made the biggest difference overall. The other observation was due to lack of front diff action, you run a higher risk of doing damage to front end components specifically axles and driveshafts if (when) you hit the wall.

The direct drive/front diff combo is by far the lightest option for my car and produced the fastest overall acceleration on tighter, technical tracks. The braking power was way more consistant and powerful and allowed for tighter line into corners. The car would scrub speed on sweepers, making it easier to coast around without thinking of using transmitter brakes.

Although some people can run one-ways on carpet, technical tracks, or low traction situations, I think direct drive/front diff combo would be my first choice. I will have to save the one way parts as options for large, well prepared tracks since you will only have rear braking power.

If you are getting too much roll with a one way, you can add 5000wt diff oil to the one way bearings and that will slow down the free-wheeling. It works good. I almost slow down as fast as the diff cars but I still have tons of steering and more pull through the corners
