Default Should i upgrade?

I'm planning on buying the Rear Ball Differential and Front One-Way Differential for my HPI Sprint 2. However i don't race so would this even make a noticeable difference? What affects would each type of differential have on my car? Could i just use the Rear Ball Differential for both rear and front? Thanks!

Well, if you aren't racing, I'd ask the following:

Why do you want to change?

Is there something that's not working the way you want it to?

Is something broken so you're considering upgrading instead of just replacing?

I wouldn't go with the one-way if you're just running the car for fun. You'll lose front brakes.

Ball diffs are a performance upgrade that allows you to put the power to the ground better. If I were building a car to run around on the street with, I'd probably just stick with the stock diffs.

Yea you're right, i think i'm just itching to buy something lol. I guess it's a 2.4ghz radio system for me... the car glitches with the included AM radio i think it's a good investment.

If its just a street basher car, i'd suggest getting the quickest motor you can that your ESC can handle... but if your having radio problems go with a 2.4.
