How do you keep your pulleys on

They have a set screw on them. Not an E-Clip.
Look at the back part that is where the set screw goes.

OK! I was refering to the stock looking aluminum pulley, not the one in the pic. And yes they both utilize a set screw to attach on to the shaft. The stock pullies use an e-clip to hold the gear on.

Just typical things, make sure every suspension part moves freely, drivetrain is free, etc. When I replaced my brake pads, I put some small springs on the screws that hold them in (in between the pads) so that the pads dont drag on the rotor. Other than that its just getting the car dialed in to the track

Can someone tell me what kind of adhesive do I use on the pulley that goes on the front one-way axle, Also do I use the pins in the front what is the difference by locking the one-way or not? Also what glue do I use for the break pads assembly?

For the pulleys just use CA (superglue)
For brake pads use a contact adhesive or i have used automotive silicone any thing that can handle a bit of heat.
The diff you are referring to is a multi diff It can be a one-way diff with out the pins ,only has drive when accelerating , both front wheels free wheel independently Off power braking is a lot harder need to brake in a straight line.
Pins inserted becomes a solid diff both wheels turn the same speed as other on and off power

So with the pins on them is better depends on the track your on correct?

Dont glue the pulley on the front axle... you dont need to.
If you then swap to a diff you can use the pulley.

I used to put a tiny drop of ca so that I could pop it off. (On reflection I was just being a little mean) Probably easiest just to get a spare pulley!
