RTS was also fitted to the TD Gemini and LX Torana. With the introduction of the UC Torana/UC Sunbird range came phase two of the General's RTS suspension programme. already good handling car even further. But while the car may have been better, sales never reached expectiations leaving the good folk at Fishermens Bend somewhat disappointed.
When the 1977 - 1978 Holden HZ sedan was introduced, there was plenty to celebrate with the new model. Arguably the most important new feature was Radial Tuned Suspension (RTS), which created a revolution in Aussie big car design. Until the Holden HZ, Australian motorists had become used to grappling with the understeer characteristics of many big sedans driven in Australia. It was the Radial Tuned Suspension system which helped tame the large Holden sedan, giving it precise and predictable handling.

Right so the UC was an updated version of RTS.

My Misses had a 78 LX with RTS, but my UC was a better driving car.

My parents had a couple of LH Toranas a HX and HZ Caprice. I bought a 2nd hand LX with rts in 82 - really rts made them so much nicer to throw around a corner . Glad I drove the early ones (pre-rts) as it taught you how to understand how to make a car talk, but after driving everything from Gemini’s to the HZ I was really impressed with rts.
