Default oneway for rubber on carpet

generally, how would a oneway work w/rubber tires on carpet compared to a diff in the front?

FYI- im running a Pro4.

Thanks in advance

The car would have more steering and it would roll through the corners to carry alot more corner speed. Just use a no brakes driving style and you'll be set. I shaved .4 sec per lap when I first switched from a diff to a one way.

If you normally run little to no toe-in with a diff then toe it in a bit

Howdy

oneways require a different driving style. You must be smooth, not use the brakes and be extremely consistent and focused, because the car has quite a lot more steering off-power, which makes it easier to hit the inside cones in the turns (and flip over...). Pretty much everybody will turn faster lap-per-lap times with one on carpet with rubbers, BUT not everybody will be faster over 5mns because of a higher mistake occurence...

At a higher competition level, pretty much everybody runs onewys on carpet with rubbers in Europe. My advice: if you can't do a perfect run with 2 diffs, don't try oneways. If you can run 5mns with each lap in the same 3 tenths of a second, then try one.

Recommended setup changes: a little less toe-out up front, and a stiffer suspension (both to tone down turn-in)

Later,
Paul

Thanks. It's another hopup that is not recommended unless one is a seasoned racer...

Later,

doesn't more front toe out give you more aggresive turn in?

Yes, lonstar said "run less toe-out"(if you run toe-out) becuase the front-oneway gives alot of steering.
