well you can have either 1 but the 1 way is has the most top speed and is the most difficult to drive the spool has the best acceleration but the slowest cornering and the diff has a combination of both but i and most racers will prefer the 1 way cos once you get useto it its betta /faster than the diff altho a 1 way will cut your brakes from 100% to 20% and the spool will increase your brakes from100% to 200%

what's the point of putting a spool ? what does that do? why is differential actions not desired? also, how does the tightness of the front and rear diffs affect the handling of the car?

the spool im not sure about i defanetly know it has more acceleration/max brakes/and is easyer to drive but a harder/tighter diff the wheels firht each other for the proper rotation speed the result is a loss of traction and the looser it is ...............etc thats why you can adjust the diff to suit your application

A spool may be more difficult to get used to. A one way is the way to go. it gives you the pull that you get with a spool but still allows the outer wheel to travel. bracking is the only disadvantage. I hardly ever use the brake so.....

I know the spools are released my TiR and HPI but it will be weeks before I can get one in my hands. How to I bolt a diff closed?

not sure but i whouldent recomend it as you could damage it but you could try what micros rock said at the top of the page cos you cant wreck your diff that way but deadbolting it shut cant be good for it so follow what micros rock said at the top sound like good advice to me

make a spliff....just tighten your diff as tight as you can..without snapping the screw in the process

and if nessecary..the diff will slip saving your outdrives/cvds a bit so they don't snap under power.

The inside tire will still pull on throttle. I even snapped the diff screw under acceleration yesterday, and the diff wasn't even that tight. Thats what 150watts will do.

Clean out the diff-rings totally, and replace the balls with pieces of rubber. This will probably lock the diff, but i haven't tested it............
