One way / freewheel / sprag clutches are used in virtually every automatic transmission with the torque converter offering some shock absorbing characteristics.

Designing one to suit any car is simple enough and fitting is also straightforward.

I suggest locating it between the transmission out put and the final drive input so there is only one needed and fitting some sort of shock absorbing coupling (polyurethane?) is also reasonably simple.

just my 2c worth.
