Sure....... Lean the front shocks in one hole. Lengthen the front camber link. Drop 10wt on the oil in the front. Drop a spring rate in the front. Add caster. Try pro-squat in the rear. Less rear toe-in. Hope this helps.

Jeff

Jeff Brown - thanks for the help with the RDX on the phone yesterday.

I did the shock changes you recommeded while running the lowered towers. It definitely will help the pistons run lower in the shock body. One other question though:

I've been running TC4 spring perches so I can run the right ride height with carpet (usually 4-5mm). Is this the best option currently? Or is there a different perch I should try? Or is there one coming from Corally?

Thanks again.

I have heard you could run Xray perches but I haven't tried tham as they were too expensive. You have to buy the shock bodies and caps and everything else with them.

I have tried the Tamiya and if you are using Corally Springs, they won't work as the Corally springs are too big in diameter and the spring goes right over the perch. I have been running the Associated and have had no problems...they work perfect!

Custom- I tend to prefer 4 -6 deg of caster. 2 deg always felt alright, but 4 and 6 deg fo caster always let the front of the car bite a little harder in the middle and exit of the corner. It lets the car finish off the turn much better.

Two things,

One used these ball ends
http://www.speedtechrc.com/store/ebp...id=236&id=2079
and these perches and you will have them slamed as low as you can go...
http://www.speedtechrc.com/store/ebp...nid=241&id=908
Also every type of spring size has fit on those perches...
I run HPI R40 and PRO4 springs as well as Corally...They all fit..I have fit Tamiya springs as well...

Two,
Why the heck did Corally USA let Cuffs go?
He won at will and had one dialed car...

Actually when you cut the shock shafts and eyelets you can still use the stock perches. I believe Toso has the stock ones on his car.
