Default RDX Body

Re: Alfa Body
I'm thinking of trying a different body on my RDX rather than the Parma Alfa. Has anyone used the new Protoform Stratus 3.0.
I just picked one up this weekend so see how it fits.

FYI-the pre drawn wheel wells fit exactly on the RDX (if you use one clip on each side of the arm) and the hood of the body complensates for the shocktower (ie. no shocktower modification necessary to slam the body).

Does anyone have any comments? Thanks!

Has anyone tryed the lowered suspension blocks on the front only to improve turn in? Is there a better way to improve low speed cornering?

At the snowbirds all the modified drivers were running optional blocks in the front and stock roll blocks in the rear.

I like the mid ackermann position the best and less caster (4 deg w/ antidive.) YOu cant try that. I never never tried the LRC blocks so I cannot comment on those.

so they were running the #1 position low block in front, and the #1 position stock block in rear?

I've tried the stock blocks in the front (#! position), the low blocks in the front (#1) position and I've also tried the low/stock block combo to get anti-dive. On a low to medium bite track with tight corners I've found the low blocks provide the best stearing(fastest lap times also...).

Default Roll Center Numbers

The numbers for roll centers only relate to the stock blocks in the car. Positions 1 & 2 are for the bottom holes and Positions 3 & 4 for the upper holes. Positions 2 & 4 refer to the blocks being flipped.

The optional blocks are not a number, technically it would be like a 0. So, in that case we were running 0 all around in the front and 1 all around in the rear.
