Har de har Actually it's going well all I need now to make up my mind is. Do I actually need a one way front end? And I need to see a picture of the MI2 S1 with stick battery in place so I can make a final visual comparison.

NO!!
stick with the stock diffs for now. i've heard of plenty of guys busting their cars up due to the 'free wheel spin' of the 1-way. if you're good with your on/off speed throttle control along w/ knowledge of proper braking techniques, then go ahead, they are definitely faster.

they race 1/10th touring at night every Friday night in Jax at the track they had the nats at in 2000. There are a few places in Florida that do that... too hot here to race during the days.
