I bought the new bumper system and can't figure out how to get it on the car. Do any modifications need to be made to it for it to fit properly? The plastic plate's screwholes aren't countersunk, so does it sit atop the stock plate?

It seems like a very awkward fit.

It goes on top of the stock plastic bumper piece...under the hard foam.

JXS-Bill - Yup I know. You teched my car a few times . I acheived the 1.5 deg of rear toe by using only shims. I used the stock rear hubs, and narrow rear wheel adapters. There was still plenty of room to spare too. I only used 1.5 deg fo rear toe for a few practice rounds. By the end of the weekend I was at .5 deg of rear toe, mainly because it was WAY faster lol. Not trying to step on your toes or anything, just trying to help out a bit.

Advil - Well Renton is about..... 30-40 min away depening on traffic from Rain City Raceway. You should come out, it's fun. BRING A 1/12 TOO!!!!! I wanna run some 1/12 really bad hahaha.

If I remember correctly, one our fellow Corally users was going to contact Team Tamale and see if he can machine camber link supports for the RDX.
