I heard about the # of people running 19turn before Reedy, guess I'll have to wait until next year to run 19turn

Is the one-way worth it for the xxx-s? I havent been in rc for a long time so excuse me for being a little dumb. The front one way makes it so that only the rear wheels are spinning right?>

It makes it so only the rear wheels brake, but all four drive on power. A one-way bearing allows the fronts to freewheel when power is take away. They give more corner speed by not letting the inside front wheel to unload under high speed cornering. But are difficult to drive because you have to be really, really good and have a near perfectly even setup on the car to use brakes.

How do you manage to put the rear hubs on rear arm standard hole? Because the dog bones stays just on the drive hub tip. Do I need a longer dog bone ???
Thank's

You need the non-offset hubs to use the outer set of holes. Its another tuning option with the car. The off set hubs make the car rotate faster and are manily used with higher bite tracks but not ONLY on higher bite tracks. So get a set of the non-offset hubs if you want to try that outside hole.

If it's under braking, it's your front pully skipping a tooth or two on the belt. No biggie. That's normal but is minimal when you're running the yellow belt. If it's other times, I'm not sure what it could be.

The CVD bones come one to a package....if your talking about the whole assembly with axles and stuff then they are sold in pairs.
