Probably, most likely, definitely not,

The SD spool mount for the gear is offset too far to one side to fit the BD pulley.
Also the large backing plate for the SD spool is too large and would interfere with the smaller mouting area of the BD pulley.

Don't worry though, Steve said that BD spools should be availiable before the Reedy Race.

Yeah, I already have the RaySpeed CVD's on the car. But switching to the Thicker TC3/4 bones would be nice. I'm guess'n you'll need the uhh HD oneway drive cups then right?

Someone asked if you could use the TC3/4 bones on the stock plastic outdrives. No you can not. This is because the TC3/4/Pro4 drive pins are much thicker than the Yokomo drive pins. This is why you need to run the N/TC3 oneway drive cups on the Yokomo oneway.

I finally got to race my BD tonight; bottom line it is faster than my CGM ever was. I raced it on carpet with foam tires using a setup similiar to my CGM. With the CGM I was turnining consistent 7.2 second laps; without any setup changes or practice I was able to run consistent 6.7 second laps with the BD. Thats a whole 1/2 second faster on a tiny indoor track. I can't wait to try a front differential; it should be even easier to drive. With more track and setup time I should be able to go even faster. Yokomo built a winner!!!

Did you have to cut the foams any to fit?

Finished my car and mounted my body tonight, just gotta mount the electronics tomorrow and it's racing on Sat.

Hopefully we get enough for a mod turnout at SoCal, but if not, 19 turn should be fun
