Also what do people do when running the front roll bar as mine hits the steering blocks when the steering is turned and the suspension compressed.

On the way bar I would say you have the front mount on back wards. Im looking at my car and it wont even get close untill you move the tire up about and bottom the shock all the way out. It wont move that much during a race.

Sup guys, I'm new to the rdx and recently cut my shock tower down for carpet with foams, but my shocks are too long to get the ride height down. I would imagine I need some different spring cups? Which ones do I need?

There are several that will work I believe.............. AE, Tamiya, Schumacher. I have some but I don't know who makes them.

T1Raycer....... i'll have to check on the part number for you.

Dan-if your performance tonight is a sign of whats to come this season-were all in BIG trouble. Great job laying it down your first night on this layout!!!

I am going to take my car almost to bare chassis and start over. My shock collars were all over the place to tweak out my car tonight.

Even after break in I am seeing that they still run a bit off center.....It causes some major chatter when at full thorttle and at full steering....Chould this be the case...just ordered a new belt to see if it was just a faulty belt....Just wanted your thoughts....

Thanks,
