Dude, you don't drive an RDX, so you really don't. That's like saying coilovers do the same thing on a civic as they do on an RDX. Nuh-uh!!!

the RDX operates like 90% of the vehicles out there.

we both have multilink in the rear
so, kenb, please tell me how they differ if we both use multilink suspension?

OoO nice word placement fix.


every car that has a multi-link rear will act the same.
by increasing the RSB's thickness, the car will feel more planted and solid. because its stabilizing the rear.

The RDX is a piece of sophisticated automotive engineering.. no one knows how it works.. like unicorns, rainbows, and magnets.

heeltoe currently holds the rights for exlusively selling this item.. which is part of the reason why it took longer to get (behind the scenes politics) so if you want a part you will need to go to Heeltoe Automotive :: Specializing in High Performance, Customer Service, and Consultation For Distinctive Honda & Acura Clients to order one

I wonder if HeelToe will get more exclusive parts for the TB1 and TB2 in the future.

Hey brah, I wanted to buy a plane ticket to come pay you a visit, but apparently planes don't fly to homelessville USA.

And are you referring to the RDX dipstick, or non-RDX dipstick? I heard through the grapevine those are two very different dipsticks.

But seriously, all sway bars are the same. I know, I know, it's hard to comprehend the RDX isn't the truly magical beast you think it to be. I mean, it is nice, but don't kid yourself

2 last I checked my rdx doesn't look like a unicorn nor am I a wizard being able to endow magic ability's.

3 different vehicles will respond to a rear sway bar differently. and even though an upgrade is available to the general enthusiast sometimes they aren't recommended because the make the vehicle to twitchy.

4 take the dipstick of your choice and cram it up your ass.

5 I promise you show up and I'll school you.

I don't even mind his posts, as he made some good points. Unfortunately I cannot say the same for all of his forum buddies that felt they had to jump in with absolutely nothing useful to add to the conversation.

he tries to be the only seller of hard to locate or rare items for acura and honda... its why he had eibach springs do another batch for our vehicle and he is the only vendor who sells them.. if there is enough push for an item im sure he can make it happen... maybe next is a rear camber kit =)

I'll need to give him a heads up when the suspension is done, so he can throw the Prothane kit on the site, and maybe even the CF driveshaft.

vit i would deff like to see but not sure he can do much since we are all waiting on hondata to fix any other bugs with the flashpro which leads me to hondata i would gladly go visit them except my time is crunch so im not sure how long they would need the vehicle and it seems like lately they dont really want to take the time to look at it
I was at ETS a couple months ago about doing some private label exhaust work and got DENIED. They are not currently doing any private label work, and it would take a lot of activity to get a project like this going. The TMIC I am fairly certain is going to be as much as we will be needing for quite some time. Hook up some sprayers if you think it is being heat soaked...but watch your intake temps before doing anything that dramatic.

Flashpro is buggy? We are more or less direct with Hondata and I am pretty they'd like to know more about that since we don't consistently hear anything.

They COULD but honestly getting them to would be a bit tough. That was the impression I got from them. I mean, they have a full in ground 4-wheel dyno they can't get hooked up because they are swamped most of the time.

I am not sure I have exclusivity honestly. Although we did buy 25 sway bars and sold 8 in the last 2 weeks. Still got a few people with deposits hanging out there...guys wanna finish your orders?

PLEASE REVIEW ON OUR SITE:

Progress Group Suspension Rear Sway-Bar, 22mm Adjustable, 2007-12 Acura RDX TB1, 62.0120

We shipped 8 bars and have NO reviews online! The forums here only hold a small amount of RDX enthusiasts out there. People surfing our site wanna see REVIEWS on the store they are about to buy from.

We would LOVE to! We really like this platform. Ken I got your email and definitely want to get more on board with developing our RDX offerings. We have lots of industry contacts and can help make things happen. The chassis is a slow one to sell parts for though. So your guys' excitement is really what makes things happen.




Dudes, be easy on justnspace...we are all Acrua drivers here. These things are all basically the same car. Honda/Acura lego sets.

I talked with ETS back when I got the TMIC and they said they would need the car there, "I was asking about a FMIC setup".


I also talked with PRL motorsport where I got my intake manifold and throttle body. They are willing to do custom stuff, but not in the market to produce stuff for the RDX unless one of the owners/employee's have the car there.


As far as justnspace, I will just have to stop with the open ended questions..

Tell me about it! I've hit up many companies and most are like that (car in-hand). But the couple that just needed samples I jumped all over it, like Prothane and Driveshaft Shop.
