kid, these directions are much better and more clear, so basically this spool thing makes sure the one way has better response?

I see that you are very talented in making mods for cars that don't exist, why don't you go in business doing this, you can make a good profi
c888, the spool is a "give and take" option. The one-way rolls freely to help a car turn in faster into a turn and then give you huge power out of the turn. But even if you set up your car on the Hudy, you need to ease into your brakes and keep a straight line to keep from loosing the rear-end. This is where late braking front diff guys can catch you.

The frnt spool gives you "late braking". I mean really late. We have a 200ft straight and I use to start braking withing the last 15-20 ft before the turn. Now I can set my brakes tight and brake in the last 5 ft. You loose the free rolling of the one-way so late-braking helps keep momentum in the beginning of the turn, and then you power it out, just like the one-way.

What's also nice is that you can keep blimping the throttle throught wide turns, to keep the from overloading. Then you'll be wound up for full throttle out. Slight mid-turn breaking is a piece of cake too.

I now can hang with the Serpent guys who use the spool. Keep the rear diff loose though.

I always drive good with the rear end loose, but it doesn't get loose on the track, it has stock diff oil in the back.

P.S kid, I need those part numbers soon, these 3racing wheel adapters are killing my rims and I'm going to switch to a new set of rims soon, so i don't want to damage them.

I know the numbers, just give me a link to a good hobby shop

But they are lighter and smoother in rotation.
so your saying the serpent aint a competition car??
uk they all like em!! especially in rubber class
maintanence is the esscence of performance!!

Cartman, I never said that ... read what I wrote. It was my opinion on Mugen. And my feed back for Serpent drivers. I have two 705s if that says anything.

It is funny that you guys are making comments and suggestions on a car that may or may not be forthcoming from Mugen. Save it until it becomes more official from Mugen.
