3. heavier diff oil
4. red rear springs up one from the bottom.
5. raise rear roll center
6. more caster

You can try more but this is a start. Based on your set up try it in this order. If you have time do one thing at a time.

Regards and good luck.

Thanks
In reference to more caster if I'm correct doesn't the 1 degree block act as in that capacity?

When you use them the stock way yes. But you need more help than just caster.

DJ, what kind of track is it good to use the one-way rear?

To be honest I have not tried the rear one-way. I would think on tracks that you do not use much braking on.

The rear one way does not affect braking at all, your brakes will stay the same, but your corner speed will be faster.

I understand the brakes are the same, but when you are on the barkes I would think you loose the effect on the 3rd one way. It is not free moving when in brake mode.

How does the 3-one way affect corner speeds? My thoughs were that it only affected the front to rear drive keeping the car consistent?

Center Oneway effects-
On Braking-Well the Center one way does not effect braking as much as in a front one way setup. If you race in High grip conditions the amount of brakes you can use is greater. It is also that way for the front one way. If you have lots and lots of grip, you can add more and more brakes.

On Cornering- If you have a solid axle and use a center one way you get a little more free rolling car through the corner and in theory a faster car. If you use a diff the center one way places way more stress on the front diff and requires more diff maintenence. You could also blow the front diff in high grip conditions.

I do not use the center one-way. I have tried it a few times and could not adapt to it.

Hmmmm

Ok lets see if I have this correct and I'll make reference to a bicycle that has only front brakes (And yes I do understand that the cars has rear brakes). That being said just like riding in a straight line and then hitting the brakes, we know from experience (for those of us that use to ride) that the more weight suddenly transfered to the front as opposed to if both brakes were initiated (front and rear) at the same time.

Now If the above is true wouldn't the car be
1. more unstable under braking
2. instigate more oversteer off power?

Are we talking about the bike pr the car. I dont get the question.

Under braking a car with a spool looses steering and a car with a spool and a center one way will have more steering under braking because the front wheels are disconnected via the one way. Allowing the wheels to free spin and becuase of the spool have stability becuase both front wheels are still spinning together.

Tino- Please ask questions with out metaphors..HEHE
