guys i've done abit of test run today with the one way! duneland comments are right it gives me great off power steering but on power steering is horrible! (goes very wide but holds traction!) so i've made 2 more rear diffs 10k, 30k ill test these out next week. i think ill stick with the one way! i really feel like its more sort of driving style as i've tried front diff with 100k (almost close to a solid front) and the steering isnt as sharp off power! with the one-way i can put the power down mid-way or 3/4 towards the end of the corner so yea i like it currently i also have 5k diff oil at the rear which is what is recommended at my track from the local guys as my track has low grip. thanks for all ya input! will also do some more testing with the shock positions etc...

thanks to all once again cheers!

Hey can i also just screw the droop screws in so the arms push down therefore the front wont lift up ?

ill be running the front one way this weekend but if i cant handle it through traffic ill by making a front solid!

Brain, I forgot what car you're running? I had my rear droop at 4mm/front was free. If your track has slight bumps, I wouldn't limit the arms. The rear will bounce alot. Plus on low grip, I prefer the car to roll just a bit.

I'm actually getting used to the one-way again. Got in the A-main (finally) in my last two meets. 2nd and 5th. I miss the agressive style of the spool, though. With either spool or one-way, you'll want to stay smooth through traffic.

forgot to update!
love the one way! feels so smooth in the corners and it feels like i have a sharper turning angle with on power steering but might go back to diff and try to make it a solid as i cant race without brakes as i dont wanna be a hack! so next club meet will have a solid front installed will update then...
also improved 1 sec each lap with the one way.

Why won't you try running a solid axle in the rear and a one-way up front? I've heard that is a hot setup.

but my local track has no bite. they say that ssetup is only good if the track has lots and lots of traction. im not planning on choosing either of the 2 yet, im just testing things out so i know whats best for me. so far one way is better than standard diff
