Default 1/8 buggy one way diff

are there any ways to put a front one way on a 1/8 buggy? changing out the gear diff with a one-way spool would be easy, but i havent come across any for 1/8 buggies.

I'm sure anything can be done but man that would make braking hairy to say the least. The majority of your braking, especially on low traction surfaces come from the front end and I'd think it would be sliding all over the place with a one way.

You can fill the internal gears with JB weld or Silly putty to lock them. That should give you a real similar feel
