driving full diff setup requires constant attack as opposed to one-ways?

car with full diff setup tends to understeer and the advantage of full diff is that you may hard brake on corners that will give you tighter corners.

how to counter-attack the full diff cars? as you know one-ways doesnt brake as hard.. time lost during tight turns.

why do you need to hard brake with front one-way if you have a good race line? you have better steering with oneway.

when setting the steering throw on the Tx with car lifted in the front. Turn left/right hold while adjust the St-EPA to its max until the steering doesnt move anymore, rite!

when placing on the ground and turn and hold steering left/right, hear servo humming for 1-2 sec., does this have any adverse effect on the servo?
