i think the top link locations are a bit of a pain it seems to me to have to bigger change in handeling you cant seem to fine tune them corally have no dought tested these locations but i feel there are still limitations to all track and getting a perfect setup if the towers had in line top link holes and hubs like the ones above it would certanly but more tunerball i personly would like to see a pick up point like the cyclone serpent and the tamiya with the above hubs that wsould be perfect imo.

Not sure if this was meant as sarcasm or not, but I've got the SMC 4000 pack in the car with no mods. I did install the PPD lower Stainless steel lipo plate which requires some work on the top deck M3 nut.

Todd, the idea is that you can make fine adjustments to the roll center by slightly raising and lowering the link angle using shims under the ball stud on the hub side. The uprights that come with the Phi and the RDX you have a series of fixed holes with no fine-tuning capability.

I think that a lot of Phi's make this noise when new, as mine did too. I have a theory that it is the pins that nail down the lay shaft cogs sliding to the lowest point in their groove.

the layshaft bearings can go and cause that noise.

That is common in the car. The c clip on the layshaft causes the noise. Try bending it so it doesn't have the twist in it or use the rubber O-ring as a replacement.

Try this link. I didn't use the side plate because it threw the balance way off on my car. I did add some tungsten plates to the inboard side of the battery though and the car balances perfectly.
