Hi, guys.
Not sure, if, it's been mentioned here but I've been using ATOMIC's Multi Drive For V-One RRR (Front Solid Axle/One Way/Solid One Way) #KR001 for the last few weeks. It's worked great and has no signs of wear, as of yet. I really like the ability it gives the driver to change the front diff set-up easily and quickly. If, you're on a track with fast / sweeping turns where a lot of breaking isn't used - you use it as One Way. If, you're on a track with slower, tight corners - you use it as a Front Solid Axle (spool), which will allow you to use heavy braking. Using it as a Solid One Way gives you an in-between mode of the One Way and Front Solid Axle. I've run it in all modes but primarily in Spool mode (Front Solid Axle). I'm going to do more testing in the Solid One Way mode to find the benefits of running it that way. I will give more feedback at that time.

I've also installed the ACER Racing Ceramic Nitride Pro Series V One RRR bearing set. The bearings are lighter and stronger than the stock bearing and will "free" up the drivetrain even more. They have polymer seals on them to keep contaminates out and require a great deal less maintenance than the stock metal sheilded steel bearings. The bearing have held up very well. as expected. They generally, last a very long time and can withstand a lot of abuse.

It's good to hear some positive feedback on the Multi-drive. Up until now, I think the one other person that I know of that tried it didn't like it.

As far as the ceramic bearings go, have you noticed a difference when you drive the car? Have you improved your lap times at all?

Also, have you tried a Front Differential??

Maybe, they weren't ready for the diffference in handling or weren't able to change their driving style and set-up to work with the spool.

Yes my lap times have dropped. After installing the bearings, the car's drivetrain felt like it did when my stock bearing were new and had a handful of runs on them. After the ceramic bearing broke themselves in - they've "freed" up the drivetrain even more. The engine is not working as hard either. I'm able to make more power at a lower temperature. The car's corner speed is a lot higher, also.

I've run a front diff a various tracks and found the diff to give you the most control. It's the safetest way to go when it comes to your front drivetrain set-up. It's not overly aggressive like a One-Way or extreme like Spool / Front Solid Axle. Both of those require very good throttle control. A front diff will be a lot more forgiving and give comfort in knowing the car isn't getting away from you because its too much to handle. It's definitely a good starting point or a good tuning option to have in your arsenal.

I had just the reverse results with mine. i found that the out drives DID NOT wear well, had big groves after only one day of racing, liked the way the car felt with it in when it was new, but after the out drives grooved like they did the handling suffered.
