Yes indeed, Sir. It's very close to the stock settings. Drive freq is from 20-40 and minimum drive is right on 40. Limit is all the way up. I don't remember the braking stuff...I just get it so that I can slam them if need be but other than that I don't care.

SWEET! Thanks again Brian! I must say after this Sunday's race (TQ'D, and went home before the main because it got late and our usual fast guy didn't run) I really like this car even though I keep hearing the rant and rave about the T2. Starting to get the feel of this car but want to do more changes to know what changes do what. Next step is to try the drilled shock tower versus lowered factory tower and ackerman positioning.

Hi guy,

this past week-end i try for the first time the new low shock tower...for me it made a huge difference over the stock drilled one...i made some shock extention too just to see the differnece between the stock one ...and wow!! can t wait to have the real shock extension from SRC...my car stay flatter and have more corner speed...i have way more steering with the extension...i use the 22lbs spring...i try the 19lbs but feel a slighty push on power...so i try the 22lbs and "Voila".....the RDX is so nice!!!

On your rear a-arms, you have a shock extension that moves the lower joint closer to the tire. SRC has made some that are even longer. I guess length is important.

There is a new version that are longer to help lay down the shocks a little more. The drivers using them are dropping down in spring weight with them as well.

It's not really to lay down the shocks, more to just move the bottom shock mounting location further out to give the shock more leverage over the arm. This will give less overall chassis roll. To get back some of the traction lost by going out futher, we have been running softer springs---19lbs.

Is this working on Carpet or is this for Asphalt? When will there be a new part number for us to have our LHS order for us? (or direct order...)

SRC79248 is the part number. Just slammed here trying to leave for Snowbirds. Website is behind a bit.

79264 ball studs are required. You must use a camber link ball end on the shock shaft as well otherwise the shock hits the tire. We shave off all foam on the insides of the rear tires as well to make sure it clears.
