    What does a slipper clutch do? Or even a one-way unit?

    A slipper clutch slips, as the name suggests, when too much torque is applied during hard acceleration. The slipping helps to prevent your drivetrain's gears from being overloaded and damaged in such cases.

    As for one-way units, they affect your car's handling especially when making turns. Basically it affects the front wheels. Applying the brakes hard on a 4WD car with one way differential means that the rear wheels will lock up with the front free to rotate (instead of 4 wheel braking) and usually ends up in a spin. That's just the con.

    I might be wrong from here on, so do correct me... The pros of a one way diff is that it improves and allows off-power cornering, depending on the driver and his/her skill, since although the rear wheels are slowing down, the front end still keeps going on through the turn.

    Quoted from here

    Ball-Diff

    Provides braking on all 4 wheels
    Suited to tight tracks where lots of braking is required and equally ideal on longer tracks too.

    GH Ball-Diff and ajustable GH Ball-Diff II available.
    GH Ball Diff classic is a bitch notchy but smoothens out with use.
    Adjustable GH ball-diff II quite good, but not as adjustable as some had hoped. Also a bit notchy, but also smooths out with use.
    Recommend an alloy front pulley gear for use with these diffs.
    New AVM front ball-diff is available, Fringo to give us some feedback on that product when his arrives.

    One-Way

    Provides braking on rear wheels only.
    Suited to longer tracks with sweeping curves.
    May cause back end to spin out under extreme braking on shorter tracks.
    In an ideal world, you should use lower profile tires on the front wheels, thus allowing the front wheels to free-wheel. If the back end drifts while cornering, the front one way then grips and the front wheels should pull the car thru the corner. This science is more suited to larger scales (1/10th-1/8th) but it's worth mentioning anyway.

    GH make a front one way as do GPM and Orion/HPI.
    I recommend the GPM / GH as they have alloy diff casings.
    Again, an alloy front pulley gear is recommended.

    For parking lot bashing, a Ball-Diff is the ideal solution.

    Are you playing drifting? Mini Z AWD good for drifting but not so much for speed.
