When I say 4mm of droop we refer to uptravel. Hopefully you are not running 4mm of up travel. The car would massively push.

Not 4mm of uptravel, i am using Hudy's droop gauge and blocks and measure from the edge of the arm. I started with a 5mm droop (according to my Hudy droop gauge) - and then i noticed i had virtually no up travel, so i changed to it 4mm to test it out, and that helped, but i think i need to drop it even more.

I believe you're refering to the steering knuckle? Call AB-Charles and Sons 412 561 3068. They're the largest Corally dealer in the northeast. I also have a link on my signature that you can click on.

He is measureing droop, i think most of the setups listed are for uptravel. They are different.

Marc, the bumpers came from corally yesterday! So now we should be bullit proof!

I did some droop calculations a couple of days ago:

I found with 59mm foams and 5mm ride height, 5mm on the Hudy droop blocks gives 2mm of uptravel. It also seems 1/4 turn on the droop screws equals about a 1mm height change.

Is this accurate? If so, simple math can help you make adjustments without constantly measuring after changing tire sizes or ride height.

I realize the RDX has been out for quite a while (especially compared to other company's "car of the week" mentality). Is there any talk of the RDX being replaced/redesigned?

Thanks. I'm in a pickle. I have an FK05 and the front of the chassis is delaminating. When I bought the 05 the T2 came out within months. Just trying to make an informed decision.

Lay dow 80$$ for a new 3 mm FK05 chassis, or sell it and save for a couple months and then go "new car shopping".
