I think my most recent setup posted on the website will be good to start. I would probably just change caster to 4 deg and stiffen the springs to 17 or 19lb. Talk with Jason Ertrachter if you see him there. I know his car is dialed at that track.

If the RDX were retired today, how would you rank it in terms of success on the all-time touring car list?

Hey Syn.... NO...! say it isn't TRUE!!! The RDX is nowhere near retirement!

Personal Opinion - It's the Cream of the Crop!! With VERY little room for improvement.

Not to mention if you see one up for sale online they still hold excellent re-sale value...! That in itself should tell you something for the quality!

While I agree with you, that wasn't exactly an answer to my question. :-)

I guess the point I was trying to make is that the car has already seen more success than most other kits will ever see, and it's still cream of the crop. Enough feel-good Corally stuff from me though, I make a better troll than cheerleader.

in the u.s.:

1) tc3
2) rdx

there are two sedans, in my mind, that have induced massive disgust among those who didn't have one. these two products, relative to their time are both standouts. the rest is a toss up. xray has won alot of stuff, but there is a new car every year, so which one do you pick? at the upper level, it's a game of numbers, when everyone has their car figured out. at the club level, however, no car has affected laps times among every level of racer like the two above.

Yea, any place to get the new bottles yet? I had the same problem as you Hebiki, when I got my first bottle of it 2 weeks ago when it arrived a little less than half was gone. Worked great though! Now I just wrap it really good in 3 or 4 layers of shop towels to make sure it doesn't leak in the pit box! lol. Are the newest shipments with the newer bottles? Thanks

ha. yeah, well, in case you have forgotten, we both tq'ed a round and ran 5:08's. and i had to let you by in mine, just so you could ball it up in the chicane the next lap. nah, like i said, everyone in the a-main of a big race has a good car. it's more about how often the car is good, that makes the rdx so hot.
