Our class rules prohibit one ways. We run rubber tire on carpet, the car is usually a little loose if your fast. I'm not sure if I would need one. The car rotates through the corner well as it is.

Sample track layout...

wow what a track if it was me running there i would have front one way and centre one way fair enough it would be in my 415 msx but should work in the 05 as the geomtry of the cars are about the same post a setup for this track it could be a easy fix for your car or at least some sujestion to improve it.

if you think this track is tight you should see some of the uks tight tracks

What is a one-way and a spool? are they like the type of drivetrain? How do they differ?

Thanks Everyone.

That track seems tight and has sharp corners. Isn't a one way more advantageous for a bigger flowing track? Wont a spool be better?

I'm also thinking of which one to get since our track changed layout to this.

Any ideas? I'm thinking of installing a front one way to my tao5 and a spool to my cyclone to compare but no time yet to do it and no cash.

Try running a 23 tooth pinion (6.85 FDR). You probably won't lose much on the straight (maybe nothing at all) and you'll pick up a bunch of punch out of the corners. Keep going up (21, 22 tooth pinion, 7.1, 7.5 FDR) until you see you're losing speed on the straight to the other cars, then take it back up one tooth.

I always thought that one-way is better for tight tracks because you get more corner speed. In contrast, spool is better for big flowing tracks because you get to use your brakes. Is this correct?

I believe those two things are reversed.

At least from what I was always made to believe. That the one-way was best for larger tracks because your rarely use the breaks. And that a spool was better for tight tracks because you need the breaks.

Exclamation Drivetrain delema?

That I believe is correct but there's a catch. As long as the track has good traction so you can stay on throttle in the corners then a one-way would be an advantage. But if traction is low I would tend to go with a ball diff or spool becaue if you have to get completely off the throttle when approaching the turn then you will loose too much speed and you will have to coast into the corner and that's where a spool or ball diff will help because you can go deeper into the corner and then swing the car around and then get right back on it!
If your just out there having fun then any of the three will work it just what your comfort level is at on the choice of diffs.
I forgot to mention a spool is very hard on the front universals in the corners because you create a binding situation of the drivetrain in the corners. parts just wear out faster!
I hope I was of some help!

Yes, with the oneway, traction does change all the rules. Our outdoor season had many tracks that would have been perfect for the oneway. The problem was that the traction was so low that it was impossible to take advantage of the oneway.

And as for the spool, even more than the universals, the outdrives suffer terrible wear with spool use. Even hardened alloy outdrives give up the ghost fairly quickly under the pounding of a spool. Thats why I've personally never cared for the spool, no matter how good it may make the car handle in certain situations. I just don't like the idea of purposely abusing parts of my drivetrain knowing I'll have to replace them on a regular basis.

Thanks for the help on what to get Big Rigg!!! Makes life a lot easier.

What suspension mounts are needed for the TA05? What blocks does everyone use on their cars/in their toolbox?

Also do all of the carbon reinforced chassis parts help the car much? I am running the car on high to medium grip asphalt at the Tamiya track.

Does anyone know the part numbers for the aluminum uprights? Do they add much weight, or are they worth it the weight?

FINALLY, does the direct centery pulley from the 415MSX work on the TA05?(Tamiya #53708)

The carbon reinforced parts are stiffer then the stadard ones and you save a bit of weight. If your running on carpet the carbon chassis will help because of the less flex
