are all the roller pins in the oneway bearing in place when you look inside with the outdrive taken off?

Get a ball diff....instant fix to ALL problems...parts AND lap times One ways suck anyway If you want the acceleration just lock it into a spool or get a better motor

The Black Kat - It all depends on driving style. One-ways are VERY effective if you know how to drive with them.

Fatdoggay....I can drive the car but its just the unpredicability really bites me...I have to be able to predict what my car will do before I tell it to do it

BTW: Just a belt-drive car hint....cut off every other tooth on the belt. Frees the drivetrain up a bunch

Impact - Yer I'm still running on rug for now but it's pretty much dead, there's still 5 or so that run though. Has frederick sorted out the computer problems? I see little point going up if nobody's running ele and they have computer problems all day long. So nitro dirt oval and I was under the impression you HATED nitro. If you get an itch to run ele outdoor at frederick shoot me a pm and I'll see if I can make it up.

Cheers mate.

I really like the one way in my xray. On the parking lot races my car sucked with dual diffs. When I put the one way in... it still kinda sucked but it was atleast drivable. I think its all personal preference. You also might need to change some things on your set up if you put a one way in.

imo on carpet the one-way is the only way to go with rubber tires and faster lap times 99% of the time

Carpet & Rubber tires is what I do 99% of the time and a one-way doesn't work 100% of the time

i also agree i run rubber tires on carpet to... the one way does in my opinion make lap times faster if u like to drive that way... but i found it to be very inconsitent. when i run the ball diff my times are very close from run to run.. when i ran the one way i would have a fast run then a slow run.. id rather be fast and consistent then fast and inconsistent...plus a diff is cheaper to rebuild...

Thats wierd because I put a one way in right before my first qualifier the first day I ran one and the car was better all around. I didnt have any problem driving it. The only problem is breaking with one. Which you cant do.

racerdx6 - Maybe you should work on setup.

I use a front one-way in stock, foam on carpet(not possible with mod) and it absolutly screams. I know foam is very different then rubber, alot more grip. Just completely dial out all brakes and find a setup that works well and go from there. With stock racing brakes arn't needed anyway, just use the natural drag-brake from the high timing.

P.s. - If you can't be consistant or don't have a setup that lets you be consistant then your screwed to begin with.

Did you check on the part no of that one way?! or hop-ups part no perhaps?. Co'z as I change my bevel gear set to a one-way gear set it just simply a plug-n-play sequence. I did'nt encounter getting it loose.. check your set-up properly. I also agree with what fat doggy stated that its very effective if you know how to properly handle it.

I also agree with wath you have mention. One-way and ball diff are really great especially when your running on a tight/technical race track. You can really feel the effect and its response.

IMPACTPLAYR
yup! l agree with you bro!. try to double check the other bearings..

Hpoe you can fix it before weekend.
