I don't know about their conversion, but everything else I have bought that has been CSO has been crap, I now avoid their products like the plague.

If you want to upgrade to the new car and are looking to do it on the cheap you can upgrade for under $200.

Chassis, arm mounts, pins, arms, suspension bushngs.

You don't "have to" use the new closed layshaft mounts, top deck, motor mount, steering plate.

Everythng else will bolt right up. If you have been racing you should have all the springs you need, etc.

IMO if you are going to spend almost $200 you might as well just sell your T4'13, take the money you were gonna spend on the upgrade and buy the '14. Then you'll have a bran new car instead of an upgraded older one.

I can't afford the new ride as of now..but this is very tempting...I do wonder if all those little bits are helping to make the car that much better. At my local the drivers that "were" at my pace are now @ one to two 10's faster average per/lap round.

I would be kicking myself in the ass if I decided to go this route and it was not much of an improvement...
Has anyone tried this and had proven results?
Every part of me says this is a bad idea over a new kit...

I can vouch for the difference between a t4 and the RSD upgrade. That chassis has so much steering that I've actually had to dial some out of it. I got the full upgrade but you could just use the chassis and use the stock t4 arm mounts instead. Could save you some cash while still upgrading.

The stock T4'13 was never really fast for me. It always felt like it never had enough steering

On low-medium traction carpet.

My T4 always felt like it didn't want to rotate mid corner no matter what settings I tried. The RSD upgrade absolutely made the car steer 10x better.

Same issue. .. my car basically shuts down mid corner. I also have an issue with no off power entry. This slight problem is exemplified in 17.5 where any loss in corner speed is noticeable. Any attempts to resolve has lead to a loose or unstable car. Not that this platform is bad (it's one of the best I have ever had out of box) but after driving the new 2014 its instantly apparent they resolved the mid corner deal.
