Hey guys, any of you have experience with these 'big dawg' bones for the TC3 from IRS? They actually fit pretty good but you have to shave a hair of material off of the pin cushions to get them to slide in the drive cups and shim the shaft of the drive cups if you want the pins to sit-in more than an 1/8" -JB

Just wanted to thanks again for the help, and let my fellow european racers that I hava a PILE of new parts for the car... as well as a bunch of options that I'll strip from the chassis, including a full set of RS springs and cups, square Ti Bones, rear shock tower, adj. batt post from tobee, lightened main axles from tobee, speedtech spool, and so on... shoot me an email at [email protected] (dates from the day when I had a TC3 ) and let me know if you're interested.

if you check on Yokomo Japan, there was a price drop on the SD-LCG conversion kit.

Tobee Craft Light Weight Aluminum Universal Bone

a question for those running Tobee Craft Light Weight Aluminum Universal Bones.

I have seen 2 people at my local track shear the ball end off these bones when running them with one way diffs. One was running with a stock motor and the other was a 9x2. Are these bones no good with one way diffs?

Both sets were bought and installed on the day and lasted 2 races each. I have a set waiting to go in the CGM.

thanks

I run them in my CGM (now Rayspeed) and have no problems with them in 540 stock, but just by looking at them I wouldn't put them anywhere near a faster motor.

They're not the strongest looking things in the world.

Yup, it looks like it be around $300 USD, hopefully it will come down a little bit more as it gets closer to street date.

I've run them in the rear of my car with no problems. I would never run any aluminum driveshaft in the front when running a spool or oneway just because of all the stress they place on them, even steel bends or breaks occasionally.

I broke 2 front cvd's and they were steel. Definantly don't buy the aluminium if you plan on running a one-way or spool.

on mine (easier for me to drive) and they still look like new even after the Nz nationals. Funnily enough I had to replace an axel at the front after the meeting but the dogbone itself is fine.
