The Kawahara diff has an alloy case, on the right hand outdrive there is a pair of clutch shoes which add resistance to the diff the faster you go. Theoretically it acts as a solid rear end at higher speed. The problem with this diff is the steel out drive wears the diff housing very quickly.

Question?

As my car accelerates, it pulls to the left. Could this be caused by the front oneway?

na - one way has nothing to do with that. Your suspension is probably set with tweak in it. Get an MIP tweak station or a set of postal scales and make sure your car is balanced

Possibly...but also check for dead bearings in the hubs.

With age the one way bearings can start to slip (due to wear)....if one goes before the other (which is normal) the car can pull to one side.

Tweak is also another thing you should check!

Why don't you two trade instant messenger ID's and chat? I mean I'm sure everyone here is more than willing to help new guys learn the ropes, but you guys are pushing it.
I would have to agree!!!!

Thanks for bringing that point DTM. Now that I think about it I remember reading where people talked about one bearing failing before the other due to more hits, crashes on one side of the car. I'll remember to check there too if I ever have this problem. Thanks for the info and sorry for the mis-information vonereflexr!

This is a brand new kit that i am running, with the front oneway and the active diff in the rear, maybe that will have something to do with it,

check your dog bones and see if they sit freely. a blinding dog bone/outdrive may cause this problem. also check if you have equal front droop. unequal front droop will cause this problem too.

i dunno guys, the car pulling to the side can be an easy problem to solve, my car used to pull to the side, so i lifted and saw that one of the wheels was slower than the others, this sometime can be solved by... (of course the car has to be turned off) it can be solved by picking ou the car and pressing down on the belt that sits on the diff and then while you are pressing down rotate the wheel on the oppesate side of the wheel that spins slower, that some times takes care of the problem and the wheels spin evenly at the same rate, i think there is a term for this , but i don't know it, maybe manticore can enlighten us

It's not really that simple, it acts like a rear drive car with a lot of horespower, when it accelerates it loads up the diff and its like one side backspins.
