Default corally rdx questions

Well, I have a corally rdx that I want to run as a vta. As I recently got the car, i did a tear down and rebuild. The car uses hingepin blocks. The complete set of blocks i have are the low profile ones #79121. Upon putting the car back together,as per the manual, the front of the front arms are higher than the rear. What will this do to the handling of the car?

The droop screws are level with the bottom of the arms. The blocks attach to the bulkheads, the hingepin passes through the block then the arm and into the 2nd block. The hinge pin/arm slopes downward from fron to rear, if this helps.

Hey
Hotrodchevy14, I am looking at the manual right now on pdf and if I am reading this right on page 27 you will see they are talking about Front Kickup/anti-dive thats why the arms are angled they way they are. I never really understood that adjustment option so I never messed with it other than what the setup sheet I found had on there.

The front kickup will make the car slightly more aggressive, this was something i played alot with when i ran Corally. Depending on the track, surface, and grip level, this can put the car on-point, or throw it way off of pace. I would get rid of the kickup to start, they make the block spacers that go underneath the blocks, also you didnt specify, is this car a regular rdx, an rdx PHI, or an rdx PHI '09.

It's the rdx (original).
