Default anyone running a one-way diff on a losi?

just looking for some feedback before i go and buy one. i'm primarly running a stock class and practicing from time to time with a mod motor, as of right now i'm using the overdrive pulley up front and it works great on tight technical tracks but how about overdrive with a one way...? anyone running this setup on carpet?

I ran a one-way indoors on carpet with foam tires, but I found that outside it made the car too squirrely for my driving style - so I went back to a standard diff for outdoors. For the record, outdoors I race stock motors on asphalt parking lot and prepared surface tracks with rubber tires (mostly).

I'll probably put the one-way back in when indoor season is back in session, we'll see.

I perfer the one way and it works for me ...Full diff it not for me.
You must drive smooth not like off and on switch
you don't want to put the over drive pulley on the one way

I almost always race my XXX-S with a one-way. You need to set the car up differently because you will have a lot more steering. If the track is pretty tight without any highspeed sweepers, I'll go with a diff. if the track has any highspeed sweepers or corners, the one-way helps you carry more speed through the turn, so I usually run it. This is on carpet and asphalt. You'll also want to reduce the brake because the backend will want to come around if you have too much brake. Think handbrake turns in rally. The same thing happens with a front one-way because you only have braking on the rear wheels.

Tricklosi,


I have finally got the solution to your dialed in desires: An out of work chipmunk is willing to sit in your front diff case and manually adjust your traction for optimal performance from straight to infield. Due to lack of work for chipmunks lately he is willing to offer his full-time traction control system for a mere twenty acorns an evening. Get back to me ASAP as I see he is now eyeing what appears to be the neighbors chihuahua and most likely would be useless for Fridays race if he has his way with that dog.

I use 1-way before, but it keep on having problem with the geniue losi one-way... so I changed into Tech racing's, with 6mm one-way bearing inside, but have to use TC3's swing shaft.
I mainly run on carpet with rubber tires. In the past, when we use foam tire, front one-way is not a good idea. But nowaday, we only use rubber tires, the front one-way becomes the standard on every car.

i use a one-way eveytime i run rubbers on my xxxs, on carpet and asphalt. when i use it with foam tires it is too sensitive and twichy for me so i run a diff or a spool. i've never tried the overdrive so i don't know how that'll work.

Overdrive is used when you are running smaller diameter foams up front than in back.

a run a one way with my XXX's... and if you can manage the car its a definite advantage, but a front diff is defintely easier to drive.

I m running on carpet, and with one way.. you'll have to keep the line in every labs, and one way will not allow you to decelerate late... because you can't use a hard brake.... but I agree, front spool or front diff really are easier to drive and you can do alot more in the corner.. but if you want a long run time with each pack, epecially in race, you may need a front one way..
HK now running 8 min in mod, so runtime is relatively important...
