I run mine in the middle with as little tension on it as possible. More of a guide than a tensioner.

well, i can say i am now a Corally addict - i was finally able to get some good track time in yesterday to play with a little setup - and all i can say is WOW!!! - this thing is great - super smooth, easy to handle and I didn't break!!!

the "fast guys" at our track are running 10.5's-10.9 sec laps and my second time out with this car - i was running consistent 10.8's - and i haven't even got the setup down.

i still need some more off power steering though - we have a couple of hair pin turns that i die as i am entering the corner, i am great coming out of it, but coming into the corner it doesn't roll as much as i would like. i will have to look at my setup to tell ya'll exactly what i am running, but basically it is dayger's setup with couple of tweeks.

anywho....i love the RDX....thanks for all the help guys....

I don't know if anybody responded, but I for one would much rather buy some lowered shock retainers from Team Tamale than trying to file down the shock shafts. If he's trying to gauge interest, count me in.

The problem with that is that it changes the place where the piston is at neutral in the shock body. It will put it more towards the top of the shock and cause the piston to hit the bladder. Cutting the shock shafts is the only way to keep the piston in the same spot as stock.

I think it stretches the belt and leads to problems with the belt flipping.
