Default Low Center Blocks

Hey Guys: Just curious if the low center blocks are also run up front???? since there is so much kick up already would the new low g blocks be too much??? Or are they used only on the rear of the car

Yeah exactly kick up anti squat??? I don't have the car here but it seemed if we put the low blocks in the same configuration as the stock ones it would have an even more exaggerated kick up in the front. I'll look through the most recent set up sheets also....

I understand Kickup.......... he said "since there is so much kick up already" which implies the car has it built into the design. Which it doesn't.

Anti-Dive prevents weight transfer and helps with transitions into corners.

Kickup promotes dive and makes the car agressive and helps with bumpy tracks.

I would recommend flat hingepins for Anti-Dive on the RDX.

For the Canadian RDX owners ... where do you guys get your parts from? I will be receiving my RDX this week and would like to know where I can get some spares without having to go south of the border.

Thanks in advance guys,

Martin

Yeah, for sure. That would add about 1 deg or so of Anti-dive. Should be good. You may want to try one step softer front springs with the Anti-dive.
