You can get the Schumacher ones to work. You need to take the drive pin out of the Schumacher Plastic CVD bone and insert it into the TC3 or 4 bone then just use the Schumacher Blades. This works this way I have seen it done more then once. Or get the system like what was just showen but there it looks like it has new out drives as well maybe?....with the schumacher parts its a direct swap and it does work.

The blades are hitting the transmission case. I did swap the pins from the TC4 ones. Dunno what I'm doing wrong

I used Corally Assassin dog bones and blades and they are a straight forward fit, similar to what Dave has shown. There was alot of correspondence on this subject in previous pages.

Dave what diff outdrives, bones and blades are those you show in the pic.

On a different tack I sent you a PM yesterday, on a different subject yesterday. Any luck finding out ?

Just back from another test session with the TC4, at the track.

This is just getting better every time. 4 runs today, cold and windy, no tyre warmers, lousy old set of Take Offs - can't afford new sets for practice. We started the afternoon hovering around the track record and ended anihilating it regularly.

And you know what? The nicest thing is that it's a long time since I've seen son Josh come off the drivers rostrum with such a beaming smile every time.

This car is so planted it's just not true.

Got some pics at last. Have a look.

Say JonhBull, are you running on asphalt? If so could you send me your set up or post a link to it real quick. Spring break starts tomorrow and I'm trying to compile all the asphalt setups I can so I can try each one while I'm off for a week. I'm pretty sure I've got most of the ones I've seen so far, but not yours.
Thanks

--Mike
