turn your throttle trim up so that your car is always moving forward slowly, so the oneway is always being driven.

sounds like you have a fairly poor setup, like your rear diff may be far too tight. I had a similar problem when my rear diff had a bit of internal damage which made it act very stiff, it almost makes the car feel like it's rear wheel drive.
You don't say what car you're driving but find someone with the same car and get their setup, check the build of your car. With a decent setup and reasonable grip a one way will be stable enough to allow some braking when needed, but your car has to be in good condition with no tweek.

Setting the throttle trim to allow a small amount of throttle when the stick is at neutral can help, more so with a stock motor since it has more drag brakes. Personaly I rarely use this trick, if I do it's because I'm having problems getting the back end planted, otherwise drag brakes can be very helpful to scrub speed if you find yourself running wide.

You need to be smooth with a one way to get the best out of it, and if your car is working well you can find you need to train yourself to get on the throttle earlier than you feel is natural because the one way will give you the on power steering to get through and out of a corner.

hold the spur gear and one wheel so they don't move, then try turn the opposite wheel, it should slip a bit with reasonable force, if you can't get it to slip or it is very tough then it's too tight, if it's easy to make it slip then it's too loose.

414 should be pretty neutral handler.


If your rear end is THAT loose...

1) make sure your Drag Brake is turned Off

2) run your rear diff loose (as loose as possible without slipping) or swap it for a gear diff from a TA04

3) how's your rear tyres wearing? Check your camber.

4) remove rear sway bar

btw, forgot to add... the ONLY time a one-way car should respond differently to a full-4WD is when you go into a corner & jam on the brakes. This will swing the tail around immediately.

On power out of the corner, the one-way car will grab & understeer a little more than twin-diffs.


Otherwise it should handle just as good.

Smooth driving is the main key... your car will look very "boring" as it just does laps and laps - keep your overall speed High. No lurid slides and opposite-lock...


I only adopted one-ways recently myself... it now seems better than running tight diffs (used to run tight at back, loose at front).

With TA04PRO dual-diffs, I used to brake into corners and power out... but had to be careful not to overpower and oversteer on exit. With one-way (e3 & Yok), you have to brake in a straightline before you enter the corner... then once you've gone around 1/2 the corner, you can floor it all you want and the front just hauls away - no throttle skill required.

There's also extra arsenal with one-way... if the guy you're chasing runs too wide on a corner, there's now opportunity to nip in on the inside, stab the brakes to swing the tail around then scoot off. It is only 50:50 chance you will overtake him as you'll be losing a lot of speed doing that, vs how much punch you have picking back that speed.

In addition, it can be very useful to alter the rear roll center to add more rear roll.

Or using different tires front/rear.

I find it's nessecary with at least one degree of toe-in in the front. Less will make the car very twitchy.
