It never did this when running constant 4wd, irrespective how hard I had setup the braking.

the only way I can stop this from happening is to back the brakes off to the point that the car almost has no brakes.

I shudder to think, but could this be something to do with the "shaft drive" torque transfer?

has anybody else experienced this?
This is the trade off of the one-way. I don't know if you driven other cars with a front one-way so you have a point of reference but generally you trade brake for corner speed.

Food for thought! I felt that my oneway wasn't going to be worth a damn when I first put it in based on the same problems you described. I tuned the brakes first then at the track I relized that the increased traction of a clean racing surface curied most of my problems. Try your oneway at your local track with good tires and see if this helps out. It did for me. LOL!

exactly!
that is one of the reasons why people say that one ways should be used on tracks with better/ decent traction. Only there, you can get sufficient braking to slow down the car!

Gav,

No, but I think they will definitely help the problem.

if you have never ran with one way before, the first time running it may be tricky, as you cannot apply as much braking.
Thanks for your advice guys, I have raced on-road electric for many years and I am aware of the driving style required, the biggest problem is that on both the tracks I race on, there is very little traction.

I also managed to adjust my VoneRR to brake without going sideways on these same tracks...

Default First spur-gear stripped

Hi all,.. new to the group,... quite amazed by the amount of posts about FW-05....

my opinions about FW-05 are,...

great car, low CG, great handling, neutral steering, but weaker spur-gear material,... (got mine stripped yesterday, the day i got it on a parking-lot track at the first time) , I've seen some posts about stronger gear material, may I know what's the maker? I desperately need some very strong replacement,.... or is my TR(P)T too strong for the gears? hehe,....

One of my friend got his pinion AND spur stripped at the same time, lucky it didn't happen to me (lucky?!).... I dunno, is it the sandy-dust,.. the engine,....or both,... he's using RB X12 Rody,...

both engines are set for high torque since we're running them on a small size, twisty parking-lot track,...

so what do you guys think?! shall I keep the FW or ....?!

try to set the pinion n spur gear meshing a bit closer.....mine don't stripped but the amount of the 0.8 gear wear is there. Waiting to see if there a hardened version of the pinions.
