Diffs diffs diffs

I've been looking around and I'm just ugh! Can someone give me the low down on a front one way, a gear diff and ball diff? Which would be the best for drifting? Thanks!!!

If your drifting CS or 50/50 usually it's front one way diff and rear is locked/spool diff. RWD is either using locked/spool or ball diff.

Amen!

Here's the front-one way diff for your car: http://hpiracing.com/en/part/86042

This will give you an e-brake effect when letting off the gas/braking.

Here's the method I used for locking the Sprint 2 stock rear diff: http://youtu.be/J75I_maZkrk

Worked like a charm. Best of luck!

never used a oneway when i was 50/50 in Cs and now in Rwd still using diff ball..

is just your way to drive.. oneway will get you slower in the corner.. but is easier to run whit.. diff is a bit harder (not to much) but really funny and faster in the corner..

that's my opinion from my personal experience..

locking both front and rear diffs will not give you the same affect as locked rear, front one-way.

definitely lock the rear. you may find that you really like stock front/locked rear.
