I assume you mean behind the hexes. It doesn't require shims. You should be able to get the play out just by pushing the hexes on all the way.

Also does anyone have some pics of the extra long chingaderas and how they mounted the shocks to them? Using a ball stud and ball cup on mine rubs the rear tires, so I must not be doing something right? Or using the wrong studs, or something!!
You need to put your tires on the truer and shave off the foam that overhangs on the insides. I even grind about 1mm off further, I do that front and rear. You have to use 79263 ball studs I believe.

The Tamiya pistons have more "pack" and react quicker. The car doesn't feel so dumpy and rolls less through the corners. Transitions side to side better due to the more pack.

Yeah, there were a few floating around but we found out they were not perfect. So we got them back and made changes.

After putting a couple club races on the RDX, I have to say that I am REALLY impressed. Using the Dayger set-up with a couple little changes, this car is dialed. Although I was skeptical about the internet hype surrounding this car, I am pleasently surprised. I have just made the switch from another company and I cannot believe the on-power stearing of this car.

Adding to the performance of this car is the performance of the customer service ... great job guys - I am now officially a convert.

Trust me you would know. They were so far off the topdecks had to be dremeled.

Correction...... you need 79264 for the extensions. Not 79263, this is used on the steering knuckles to fix the bump steer.

Yes, that will help the car rotate more on exit of the corners. You may have too much front droop, I would drop to about 1mm in the front if you are running more.

Put the belt tension pulley wheel on no matter what class you run.

I have never used the belt tension pulley with my 7 turns. You can use it, just put it halfway back on the topdeck. Do not put it immediately behind the front pulley.
