Default Heres another one>>>>>>>>>

Same car diffrent question, trying to figure out if the car has a front oneway diff..... Ill hold both back tires and try to to turn the fronts, they wont turn.......Im assuming oneways "freewheel nomatter what,true/false??

also the rear diff actually looks like a normal diff but in front looks like all ya got is a drive sprocket attached to the 2 outdrives, so am wondering if it is a oneway?

That would be a spool in front. It is completely locked and won't turn at all. A one-way will allow the front tires to spin forward independently of the rears (brakes only engage the rear tires, power drives all 4).

That'll be a spool / solid axle you have there... a one-way will have a unit with outdrives that mean the wheels can only spin in one direction, as you rightly summise

HiH
Ed
we could be mistaken and sorry I dont have a pic....when I turn one wheel up front, other one turns the oppisite way, so maybe its not a solid axle? thier are also 2 outdrives on each side with bones ofcourse...so what I got here is a belt drive sprocket attached to 2 outdrives..if I try to turn the front tires the oppisite direction of each other they wont turn...now whatdoya think?

Could it be the multi-diff?

We think your explanation doesn't make sense.

Correct the two statements above so they don't contradict each other and perhaps we will be able to help.

The rest of your description is pretty much universally valid so that doesn't help either.

By the way, have you asked the seller of the car?

Hold the rears, and frt wheel doesn't turn either way, Frt has a spool. With a spool is like a straight axle, either way you turn the rears, the frts will follow.

Turn rear wheel on forward direction, Frts will turn in the same direction, Stop the rear wheel from turning, frt wheel stop turning in the foward direction, But frt wheels Freewheels backwards, You have One-way frt end. Electric RC you will loose frt end braking with one-way clutch.
