Be careful, though. The hinge pins from the RSD upgrade are really, really weak. They bend super easy. A lot of people are just cutting their stock T4 inner hinge pins down to the same length as the RSD ones.

Hmmm. Well I have an extra set of pins. Maybe I'll just cut them down now and swap them in.

Thanks for the tip.

Why don't use Yokomo pins?

Because I didn't know they would fit. Well, and I now have two sets of the stock pins I'm not using so I can take a couple minutes to just cut those down.

Yea, this is highly recommended. The stock ones are very soft, and sometimes bend without you knowing it. Just cut the xray ones and be happy. :-)

I headed back for some practice today and after the first pack I pulled some stuff apart to see if I had bent any pins. Nothing bent but I did notice that the arms were bound between the blocks some. When I swapped this setup in I didn't notice but I had to take .5mm out to get them nice and free in there. I think it may be because I only have the stock shim and I think it doesn't register against the pillow block but against the insert instead. I'll get the right shims and change that.

Then I spent the day messing with this thing and worked my lap times down a bit more. I still can't say that this chassis setup made huge differences fowr me but it is working nicely and seems to have a good setup window. I also find it easier to mess with these toe blocks than the stock ones so that's an improvement IMO. I'm leaving here now with a car that went .2 sec faster than yesterday in the race so I'm happy.

I found the same thing with the pillow balls binding against the spacers.
The pillow balls actually stick out very slightly from the plastic inserts, so I took a file to the ends of them so that they no longer stuck out.
I can now use the metal Xray shims without any binding.

Are the stock RX4 pins silver or gold?

So, who has gone the RX4 route and have a 2014 car. Do you see an improvement in the 2014 over the RX4?

What do you think is better about the 2014 or RX4?

I planned to buy a 2014 in the spring to run outdoor and would move my current RX4 car to my backup/spare car. I'm curious if it's worth getting one now or not.

Thanks,
