Just putting the finishing touches to my RDX , is it normal to end up with a fair amount of toe-in on the steering after building the steering and ankerman links ?

I have followed the manual to the letter.

I also followed mine exactly and ended up with a center steering link that was way too long.......had to square it all up

Just make sure your bellcranks are straight in line with the upper brace....when looking down at the car

McGreevy-if you try the set-up Kevin sends you-let me recommend you just take the car apart. Take off the bumper, the right rear bulkhead-on of the front bulkkheads then start working on it. It took me over an hour to put it all on my car Saturday night at the OS champs. A lot of that was because i went from super short to full long camber links-so I was making new camber links and things like that. And do it all-dont skip a thing. Its freaky good at Platinums 70x35 tight and technical layout! I havent run it at the GAtes super fast 90x50 layout yet-but I will Thursday night.

Thanks, Ray. The layout we have down at RSJ (75x40, new ozite) is very tight and technical as well. Full-long links? Wow...

drive it tight and drive it exactly like a 12th scale and your gonna be turning sme heads! Dont use too much steering throw either-it just scrubs speed. It turns plenty without excessive d/r.

It took me a lot of laps to get used to it, but when I did-I was able to just run one lap after another-all within 0.2 from fastest to slowest over 15 or more laps and the 35th lap was faster than my first laps!!

Ray, let us know how that setup works at the Gate...Kevin and I were speculating as to how "universal" that setup may be.

So drive it very smooth and "slow" (you know what I mean). I am already at a low amount of throw...55% I believe. I've started to migrate to the Sobottka ways!

I was just looking at the car tonight and it truly is the prettiest car made right now.

Only issue with testing Thursday is we are putting a new layot down-sothere wil be all the issues of running on green sections and then hitting a spot where there still lots of grip. So I might nt have anythng useful to say. And I am not racing Sunday.
