See, unless I did something wrong, my dad is the one that paints them and mounts them. And all the alignment was perfect. Just the body touched the towers. and theres nto front or rear, so its not like i have the shock towers mixed up.

Im getting fustrated because the RDX is starting to become a money pit.

Try Jason Ertrachter's setup from the IIC. I'm working on my own concoction that seems to be really fast, as well.

My hood does touch the front tower, but it only "rests" there. I keep it from rubbing paint off by using a little glaze of shoe goo. Good luck.

Keep the front end wide. It keeps the car more stable and also makes it initiate faster.

Vaguely related question... if running on asphalt is the 2.4mm chassis (and upper deck) really needed, or can one get away with running the standard carpet spec chassis with just the 2.4mm upder deck?

The standard chassis works fine for asphalt for most conditions. If it's really hot then the 2.4 mm chassis will help. The standard chassis and topdeck or 2.4 mm topdeck work fine.

On the subject of the lowered front shock tower, Are you supposed to cut both the shock shaft 3mm and the eyelet 3mm or just one or the other?

what's the difference between running a 100 spur vs. a 110 spur?
and does it matter what stock motor you run with these spurs(like this stock motor performs better with this spur etc.)?

I am flying up for the race. If you have any questions let me know. I will start with either Rob's setup or Jason's from the IIC.
