Guys, Me and Axel run rubber tires on carpet. Thats how we run every class (except mod) in NorCal

Axel: Stick to the diff while your still learning the arts. A one-way will be hard for you to drive for a while.

BTW: If you get in trouble not having a ride again, try taking transit. VTA bus #68 will take you to Gilroy Transit Center which is a block from HW

Don't forgot that that with a spool or one-way, a wreck will pull more amps causing the battery to go flat. You will lose the punch if you hit something while on throttle. This problem is less noticed in diffs b/c they give some and unlease the energy to the inside tire.

How's the tire wear difference though... between, a spool, diff and one-way!?

I know for sure that a one-way (due to efficiency) will make the tires last longer... and I heard tires on cars running with spools has uneven wear due to the extra "work" they have to undergo... especially the front tires.

Spool, extreme wear on front tires. Will go through front tires FAST

One-way, medium wear on front tires. Wear faster than rears, but consistantly rotating front to back will increase tire life.

Diff, low wear on front tires. The front tires wear slightly faster than the rear due to the front end dive during turn in. Rotating not that necessary.

if you dont count the damage from hitting walls, because of the less rub wont the oneway have the least wear as eeyan says?

Actually, a one-way will wear more than the diff since the one-way is the same as a locked spool exiting the turn. A diff won't let the power go to the tire with the most traction, so the tires won't wear as much.

is that what happens? i had thought the outside spins faster than the inside. but i guess on throttle the tires have just enough slippage to not let it spin the outter faster than the driven so it acts like a spool. huh. im glad i made this thread. im learning so much!
