How exactly does the inboard rear toe affect the RDX differently than the outboard rear toe?

Well....... opinions vary and I personally have yet to test it. It is on my "To Do" list. I think that the outboard toe would give more forward traction and a bit less sidebite through the corners. Where the inboard toe would have a "mechanical" bind and provide more grip through the corners.

Not 100% sure but hey it sounds pretty good. Now I'll let everyone else tell me I'm wrong......... hehe.

I've gone down the same route as you fella, Corally's web site, ie setup's and on here is more informative. Plus it's easier to get parts than it was for my BD which i have sold,still a nice car though!!!!

Mcgreevy-ran your set-up at the Gate. I had to start a lot softer due to it being a new layout and no grip. But at end of night I put the whole thng on. For the mid/low traction we have now-I need more off-power steering and more high speed steering (think 160' flat out then into a 180!!!). Its sweeper on, sweeper off and into a 180-then another maybe 50' straight into another 180.

Thanks Brian,
Ray

Default Composite steering levers?

Hello guy's, In my kit i have only just noticed that my steering levers are made of a composite or nylon material is this normal for #00166 kit?
Because in the manual on page 11 it say's "ALU STEERING LEVER R,L (79255)"
But in the parts index on page 2 there isn't sutch part number, only "(79256) STEERING LEVER SET(1 PAIR)-DURALUMINIUM" and doesn't indicate optional part along side it....

From what i have seen on another forum it was done by Helger to reduce the cost of it in the shops over here. Dont know if it is true though.
