Depends on the inventory of the importer. All kits we currently have at CorallyUSA have the old style turnbuckles. I am sure the kits will eventually be coming with the updated style.

Little bit off topic - I have a question regarding my RDX. Whenever I steer my car at 100%, while holding the car up and giving it some throttle, the inside tire vibrates very badly. I tried reducing it down to 90-95% but the inside tire gets pulled in to the maximum (knuckles touching the caster block) then vibrates. I hope you can picture my problem. Can anyone help? Thanks.

Prolly because your end points are not set correctly

Set your Dualrate to 100%, then adjust your EPA for Left and Right individually. If your Left and Right settings are way differnt, may have to measure our steering throw on a setup station to make sure your turnning left as much as right, once that is done, you can turndown your dualrate and eventually, the knuckle will not touch the caster block

I drive with about 65% Dualrate, So my knuckles are nowhere near touching anything.

Hope this helps

Ben..

Tanta, a bent drive shaft can cause that vibration.

Also check for broken wheel bearings and/or broken or out of round c-hub bearings/bushings.

I appreciate everyone's suggestion. I will do and check per your suggestions. Also I want to add that when I take out the front tires, there seem to be very minimal vibrations that I can detect, if nothing at all. But once I put those front tires the vibrations happen again.

Any chance you are running a spool?

Yes I am running spool with Sorex rubber tires. You think it could be the spool that makes it vibrate? Thanks.

it may be contributing... My car does this too at full lock. I think it has something to do with the CVD, not just Corally ones, but all of them that are this design. I'm not sure of the exact cause, or if I'm remembering this correctly. This chatter has been talked about before.. You may try searching for that, or maybe someone else will have some more insight for ya.

And most of the RDX option parts will fit the Phi right, i.e. bumbers, body posts, caster blocks?
Yeah... I also forgot to tell you to get the aluminum steering blocks (otherwise known as hub carriers)

OK, so with the car gone thru the set up station, turning circle is 4 feet !! Don't see much more than 25 deg each side of centre and the steering blocks are parked on the C hubs.

What've I done wrong or does it mysteriously turn like a demon when on the track. All my previous cars have turned in smaller circles.

Hanging arms at full lock will definately cause chatter with a spool... when it;s on the track under load it should be reduced (but generaly a good setup won't require 100% full lock steering). Also some black grease on the front blades is always a good idea

As for turning radius, I'd say if it handles the tight corners at speed, then don't worry about the turn radius when coasting... (that being said mine will turn a fairly tight circle at only 70-75% dualrate...). Double check your front toe settings and make sure you're using the correct ackerman hole on the knuckle... also if your servo horn is too short it'll cause reduced steering travel, but it sounds lke you are getting it to full lock...

good luck fellas
