Hi all

Just finished building my UK-spec RDX and it comes with 2 deg rear hubs but still says to install the 2 washers behind the hinge pin mount giving 4 deg rear toe in. Isn't this too much or should I just try it as it is?

Thanks
Tim

Well... we measure it as 2 deg. It's 2 deg each wheel. Thats a good starting point though, I would just leave and and give it a whirl. If you need to free the back end up any, go to 1.5 deg of rear toe on each side.

I think what he means is that he has the 2 degree hubs on the car and isn't sure if he also needs to put the spacers behind the roll blocks, which would equate to 4 degrees per wheel. Tim, either way you do it just start out at 2 degrees per wheel.

I just dont remember them comming with 2 deg rear hubs... might be a new thing they are doing. But yes, if it indeed comes with 2 deg rear hubs (it will say directly on the hub), just leave the rear toe shims out.

My UK car kit came with 0 degree hubs. Check again. If it is so, follow Sushi Boy's direction. And consider taking a half a degree out by adding a narrow shim to the front of the inner hinge pins.

See I thought so. Mine did a long time ago... but Corally tends to do little updates like that to the kits as we all know.

Just put a 1°shim in the back and 1°shim in the front
that make the car a bit wider in the back(on the rear bulkhead!)! and more stabile! (only if you have 2° rear uprights)

It definately has 2 printed on the hubs. I will try it first but I will probably end up taking the shims out from behind the hinge pin holder.

REGARDING UK EDITION KITS

There are two different UK Kits. The UK kit shipped to the US is not the same as what is shipped to the UK. I am not totally sure of the differences. I know the UK overseas has nylon steering bellcranks. I do not know what hubs it comes with for sure. They wanted to drop the price in the UK plus have a double diff setup as far as I know.

I've emailed Corally to ask them so we'll see what they say.
On another note I've fitted the bigger bumper but it seems its going to make it difficult to fit a Mazda 6 shell. Should I cut the bumper down? It seems silly to get a bigger bumper then chop bits off
