From my experience, a center and front one-way combination makes the car more free, but also exhibits a little bit of understeer (but then, you can always compensate on setups). Taking off the center one-way and replacing it with a direct center pulley while still retaining the front one-way will have a more direct feel on steering (hence more aggressive steering). Again, this is from my experience... not sure how everyone else sees the difference.

I agree with eean...but take it one step further,put a spool in the front as well as the locked center pulley,this gives you even more steering,more drive out of corners and you can use brakes!!!!!!
Great on tarmac.

A locked center pulley and 1 way has had more steering than a locked center pulley/spool in all of my testing, actually by a large margin.

Default Shock Assembly

Hi guys, I am at the stage of building my BD shocks. I can't seem to get the triangular piece part A-D to go into the shock body. Do I need to trim the triangular edges? Please help. Thanks.

Make sure all the axtra parts tree that is on the triangle is off and use a little bit of force to get them in. I just rebuild mine yesterday and they needed a bit of force. Just do cram it in there, use some fanesse. They should be snug that is a good thing.
Hope this helps,

Stephen, I've got another question. Why do we need to put the black O-ring thru before screwing on the shock end? Any reasons or use for it? Thanks again.

I am assuming your are referring to the thin black O-ring. That goes in the adjustable threading spring holder downer thingy.LOL it goes in there so your adjustments on the preload don't adjust them selves. Hope this helps.
there should be clear O-rings that go on the inside & bottom cap, make sure the little black flanged thing gets into the bottom threaded cap.
Hope this helps,
Stephen <><

Stephen, I am referring to the thick black O-rings that your suppose to slide onto the shock shafts before threading on the plastic shock end. Sorry to have caused confusion here.

I don't use any black o-rings inside my shocks except on the bottom before the threaded cap goes on.
The thin black O-ring goes underneithe the adjustment proloader thingy to keep it from adjusting. Maybe the instructions say to put it on the threaded part of the shock before screwing down the preload adjustment thingy.
Let me go look at the instructions just to clarify.

They make the handling a bit "sharper" since they limit how much the car can lean in one direction.
