Hey guys, I just bought an RDX for getting back into touring car racing so I had two questions:
1st question is which setup do you guys prefer for ozite carpet with the rubber backing?
2nd question is since I bought the UK Version I will rebuild the car but do you have any recommendations to get or upgrade?
Thanks.

Hope this helps, good luck
Thanks, I will post what is wrong when I get a chance to tear it down.

Thanks, I will check you list out when I tear it down.

Another really good one is Jason Ertrachter's winning setup from the IIC Vegas race.

Default question for about shims under couplings (jeff b/corallyusa)

With Jaco tires what is the correct shim under coupling for the front and rear to get the correct track width.

If I switch to the 2degree toe in hubs how would I have to shim the car to get the correct trackwidth.

I have tried both Cuff and Toso setup and the car seems to push mid corner on low speed/med speed turns....I am have the stock couplings as listed in the intstruction...1mm on all of the front and 1.5 shims in rear on rear set of couplings to get 1.5 toe in.

Thanks

You want to run 2.5 mm in the front. This should make the car more stable and I noticed it gave quite a bit more mid and exit steering.

I'll second that, 2.5 is usualy where I start for anything. I've even run as much as 3mm on some wheels for asphalt racing.
