Default One way

What effect would have a front one way in my 4wd touring car?

more corner speed. You also get more steer.

However, you lose your brakes so it feels like a 4WD on-power but a 2WD off-power. It's a bit to get use to especially if you have been using a spool.

you cant brake thouh

the one way is good for lower powered motors where you dont need to brake for the corners

i use one with 27 turn motors but never with the brushless setups as they are faster on the straights

I loved my one way in my XXX-S, until I had to tap the breaks.... for me atleast it would make the back end step out a bit.

You also can't brake and turn at the same time as you'll spin. I've found that with a one-way there's more entry speed, but isn't quite a stable on entry (off power) where as a spool has more exit speed and remains stable through out the whole corner.
