Hi, We have tried running with a spool and centre one way, u still cannot break, but the car will rotate slightly faster and straight line speed is slightly improved.

An option would be to run the one way to the rear belt and fixed to the front although you have to turn the one way bearing round. Now you will be able to break with the front, car will rotate a little quicker and straight line speed is improved slightly although the car feels very funny..

Have any of you broke the bulkheads like what HKRCMODEL said had happened to him? And if so are the new ones stronger or designed better or the same?

I did not broke my bulkhead (thank god ) If you want some reinforcement upper mount, just wait for the jet racings. They have a new one that they are trying out.

For something like this, I believe they can handle this(Maybe). All you need is to drill the holes straight. But for sure, it is better than GXM.

The upper decks and other graphite parts are hand-made from sheet graphite...they do a great job of stiffening the car up for carpet racing!

The belts are the stock HB belts colored with a silver sharpie .
