there's no easy way mate To lock it, use JB Weld. Using CA on it would work only for awhile and would need to re-glue it after awhile. Both ways would still ruin your bearings. Why not get a front diff instead?

Best deal is to lock a standard diff with Losi spool pads, works great and it is like $2.00 for four pads...I like that is also lighter than my real spool.
Just thought it would be cheaper that way. If you ever do want to sell it, the one way would be nice to have it when you do ever sell it.
Just my opinion,

to lock an oneway diff you have to drill 2 holes (1 on each side where the outdrives comes in)

then put a pin to lock the pieces.....

that's the way the serpent 710 oneway is turned into a spool, so it's race proven....

first off. a one way diff in front will work for drifting fine. but better yet, can you put the one way in the back? i found i liked a one way in the back for drifting to work quite welll for me.

JB Weld doesnt hold too well to smooth surfaces, so you need to first scuff everything up with a dremel, grind notches into the outdrives where they contact the 1 way bearing, then apply a lot of JB weld and it should hold for a while.
