Default Center One Way

i just tried several combination foams/carpet this week.
I've been attempting to find my best combination for a pretty fast high grip carpet track....MIKESHOBBYSHOP.com...(shameless plug)

One way front + center one way = uber fast but lot's of push on mid & exit of turn.

Diff front + center one way = good speed a bit more steering but still has slight push on corner exit

Diff + locked center = very nice steering feel but at a loss of corner speed, push is almost gone just a little bit work on the car setup and it should work great.

All three options were tried with 3,2,1 degree block in the rear....1 degree seems to work the best with all three option, at least for me it did.

At the end of the day I actually like the Diff front + center one way
this gave me a mix of speed and push which I could compensate for.
actually picked up my fastest lap to date with this combo.
a lot of this is also dependant on your driving style, my suggestion is try them all and see which fits you best.


I'll try a spool next week to see if it works any better.

WARNING!!!! I tried a spool/Locked center gear on tarmac with rubbers...It worked great BUT I chewed or bent
3x stock front shafts
2X hadened steel universals
The other guy at my club did about the same...We both went to diff front/locked center gear...that was a lot better...but I still have a problem of turning into the corner
