Calvin,
thats just it, lock in the rear end...
more rear toe-in
longer camber link
front sway bar
maybe 1 step stiffer rear spring
lay shock down, slower weight transfer

I dont think the iron chef winning percentace is that high, its all got to do with practice and dedication and willingness to think outside the box, sounds like a simple lesson applicable to many aspects of life and rc tuning

probably just start with the rear to make sure you have the traction addressed then work the front to achieve neutral handling

414 should handle quite neutrally out of the box... probably even pushes on entry into corner. Tail should be well planted.


Might be an idea to Reset everything back to the manual's specs, before trying anything out.

And do any changes only 1 at a time.

And don't change both Front and Rear at same time, it defeats purpose and just confuses things.

Not that I have muc experience with low to medium traction, but personally I wouldnt go for a one-way.

But if I should try it, I would first setup the car with double regular diffs, so it performs very well. Then I would secure that I got the whole setup written down and that I got access to a setup board. First at this point, I would try the one-way and eventually adjust the setup by making the rear softer etc.
