hard to explain, but personally, i prefer the spool to the one way, one way is good for a fast flowing track, the spool is probably better on the twistier tracks.

it is just one opinion though... and opinions are like as*holes, everyone has one
What are the opinions on ball diff then? I'm not sure if I should go spool...

One-way is great for stock racing where you don't "need" brakes. This is especially true on smaller tight tracks. Simply let off the throttle and turn in. Then mid corner you pile on the throttle and the car simply pulls itself out of the turn. Very easy...

I'm running 13.5 rubber-asphalt, variety of turns, mostly 90 degs or more. Currently on ball diff, front slightly tighter than rear. Front ball-diff or spool or 1-way or centre 1-way? Pls advice, thanks!

I'm running 17.5 BL, Front and Centre one way and rear ball diff, very easy to drive like that and I race on what is a medium size technical track.

By observation and experience: guys who use spools and go faster with them also know how to use brakes. They go deeper into turns, slam down, pitch the end up and rotate around, and punch it out of the turn. It's aggressive, hard driving. Guys who use spools but don't know how to use brakes just push around the track and don't get any benefit.

I like a one-way (front and center) because I can let off, and then turn in harder than with a diff and still carry more speed through and out of the turn. I think at the pointy end of the sport the one-way has ceded ground to the spool. But for most the one-way is still the better choice all around...IMO.

How much effect does the center + front 1-ways have over just the front 1-way or just the center 1-way?

Front one way is more noticable than the centre one way, looking at it in a logical fashion, the front one way is "the" front axle. the centre one way is less noticable as it has to carry the one way drive through the belt, onto the diff.

but, you will still have much less braking with either, or obviously both.

Its all about driving style and what suits you best. for me its spool, for others its one way of some configuration.

Ps, with foams you 99.9% of the time need a diff up front its unheard of to use a front one way or spool with foams from everything i've ever seen in setups....

The center one-way is more mild as tc3team said. This is becuase the front diff is still in place resisting the differential action at all times.

The front one-way is more agressive becasue there is NO diff action on deceleration, and there is locked "spool" action on acceleration.

There isn't much difference when adding the center one-way to the front one-way. I believe it just makes the one-way action more smooth & consistent. Plus it's supposed to make the drivetrain more effecient (though I have no idea how)...

I'm not even sure if there's enough adjustment in the bulkhead to make up the slack.

I'll try though.

Then you need a new belt.

I was reading the Hudy setup manual (No I don't own the system ) and this is what it says about the front axle.

1) Ball diff: commonly used in low-grip conditions
2) Solid axle: typically used on large open outdoor tracks, or tracks that feature braking areas or slippery conditions. Increases on-power steering, less off-power steering. Car is stable and easy to drive.
3) 1-way axle: some on-power understeer. Behaves like diff off-power.
4) 1-way pulley: mentioned how the adjustments affect handling. Tighter for low traction and med traction (slow, tight corners). Looser for med to high traction (slow,tight corners). And 1-way axle for high traction (fast, sweeping corners)

I don't recall the center 1-way being adjustable??

i believe that's when you are running the center oneway with a front ball-diff...the tightness of the front ball diff controls how the car reacts to the oneway.

These are the exact words:

On cars with an adjustable one-way pulley, you determine how freely the front axle turns in relation to the rear axle. You can tighten the adjustment of the one-way pulley on the layshaft; from fully tightened to lock the front wheel to the rear (full time 4WD) or loosened to let the front free wheel off power (4WD on throttle, RWD off throttle). Or it can be set somewhere in between to match your driving style.
