Have any of you guys experienced the front solid axle (spool)??

Because now this is more like a trend and all cars are using it, for example almost all factory drivers competed on 200mm Nitro Worlds and 1/10 EP Worlds are using them... and I'm in progress to modifying the rear solid axle into front. Will post pictures in a couple of days.

I tried spool very much with my V-One RR, with no great success. I do think it's mainly because of the Swedish track standards, VERY large, in the US the tracks are often smaller which suits spools better. I did'nt really manage to get any corner speed with the spool. More of a stop-and-away driving style.. I tried soft front suspension but then it oversteered on power.. Nah, one-way to the people!

you can make a spool a couple of ways, using the one way, put a drill through the one way bearing and output shaft then knock a metal pin though it and epoxy glue it, the 2nd way 3-racing make an adapter to fit inside a geared front diff that locks it up, or just fill a front geared diff with a srong thick epoxy glue.

have tried one with rubber tyres, gives really good pull out of the corner but may under steer alittle going into it

Default Spool

Easiest way is buy a kawahara solid rear for V1R and mount the front pulley thats it. fits straight it no mod needed. good for open track not for tight corner push too much

have you tried one,are the mounting holes in the same place as the front pulley, and is the pulley in line with the middle mount pulley.

i've just had a look at fitting the oneway in the back (this is for refferance only not to try), know the front pulley is mounted tight too one side and rubs on the rear bulkhead, where as the rear pulley is mounted closer to the middle. know unless they have made the solid back axle different i can't see it fitting in the front.
if i'm wrong please tell me, and i will get one ordered

Trust me, it fits perfectly in it, the karahawa are different to Kyosho solid axle, u can just screw the front pulley and the out drive, pins from the rear gear diff and is cheap, i think is less then 30usd to build it

Right now, my front axle is done. I'm using the K1411 (G4 rear solid axle) and Kyosho's diff set, which you only need is the front pulley mount. For modification, just have to drill one small hole on the plastic side.

Jas is right, the spool will under steer a little. But after I changed my RR Evo's steering hubs (should fit G4) with the RRR hubs, the sucker turned on a dime. Through testing, use a looser than normal rear diff (5-10K oil) and softer springs, stand up rear shocks (one hole at a time) and maybe even a rear sway to keep the front inside wheel down (you'll be on the gas more throught the turns).

I really loved the spool. Took a little getting use to, but it's the easiest to handle if you want to drive harder/faster. And hard braking is a great advantage too.

I posted this a few times in the RR thread but just incase you want to try making your own spool, here's how I did it:

I think it's like the Serpent's oneway correct? I prefer build a new one than sacrifice my oneway. Because my friend saw Salven's oneway is broken when he locked it to solid axle on last WC.
