czotalis is exactly right, a one way does provide better steering but no braking, that is why a diff gear or a solid axle will allow for braking and the solid axle would provide the same steering except it would produce a off power push.

Default Tried diff and didn't like it.

I tried the front diff with the oil that comes with the kit and didn't like it at all. It gave me understeer off-throttle going into corners, not to mention the snap-oversteer coming out of hairpin corners. It was really bad. I went back to the 1-way as it was over half a second faster per lap. Maybe the diff would work better if I chased the set-up a little, but I did not have time, as we were getting ready to start racing a short while later. I also tried a heavier oil (30,000) with the 1-way and it was slower- more oversteer off-throttle into corners. The traction was poor however. I also use drag brake to get the car to turn in better. I would call the driving style required to go fast in my car as smooth into the corner, aggressive on throttle out of the corner-Kind of like an 1/8 car.

i think it's just a personal preference, if throttle after every single coner then of course brake is needed to slow down b4 the next coner, so an oneway will not work

I had been using the 1 way, then put my locked diff in for the smaller (heheh ) Florida tracks. Then one lazy day I left it in for my home track and I've searched out and built a front diff. You can accelerate harder and longer then slam on the brakes for the turn.

When you say smaller Florida tracks I assume you mean Kissimmee, Ft Myers and Lakeland right?

I use lots of brake with the one way, you just need Teflon pads and take the time to set the brakes up right.

We have a medium to large size local track.
I am running stock gear 47/43 and 20/16.
What is the best combination gear for good low/top end if running in medium to large size track?

Thanks.

Hi guys,

I ordered a R40 a week ago and I just realize there's a new 2004 version comming out I am new with on road and I currently own a RS4 Evo. Should I just sell the R40 and pratice with my RS4? Needless to say I will have to spend lots of $$$ to make it run. (very broke at moment) I might get into racing when I have better skill

How does the current R40 stock compare with MTX-3 with the same engine, mainfold, pipe, servos, etc???? I am asking because there's more MTX-3 parts than R40 locally.

Please help me out guys...
