Hi Brian - It's good until I hit the throttle. Running a diff (Don't have the oneway yet )

I have plenty of front droop, running 3degrees toe, front 50wt 19lb, rear 30wt 12lb.

Feels more like "snap" loose on throttle... if that's a good way to describe it.

Antisquat in the rear end may be what you need... Sounds like what my RDX was doing when I started running rubber tires... Where are your roll center blocks?

You might try running them in the High Position... I think thats the stock low roll center from the RDX, whereas the blocks down is the ultra low position from the RDX...

In Jeff's setup it has both front and rear "UP" and shims underneath the back.

The book says down, so to all you guys waiting on kits keep that in mind if your going to run rubber tires.

I would start with all the dots up. It is the older cars stock roll centers.

Beardmore..... if the car is stepping out, besure your front shocks still have oil in them and are not leaking. I had this problem then I found out one of my shocks was blown out. If it still persists then I would angle the rear camber link and put it in the inside hole on the tower, bottow row.

You also seem pretty light on the rear setup. If you are using the kit pistons, which are 1.3mm holes, along with 30wt oil and 12lb springs it may just be collapsing instead of supporting through the corner.

Yeah, with the 1.3mm holes that's pretty big holes, so the oil could thicken up a bit and maybe go slightly bigger spread on spring rate from front to back- say 22-17 (f/r).
