Eco display
I've herd if you over stiffen the front up you will get understeer not sure if this applies to the fn2.

What do you recommend for improving the turn in, front arb maybe?

Went for coilovers, rear arb and uprated droplinks on my FRS setup at end of january (20mm at front and 25 at rear)

IMO and after a chat with the boys at ABP we came to the agreement that the front ARB in a 2.2 would detract slightly from the rear - you need that little bit of softness in the corners at the front end.

Now she handles like a go kart

Messiah had a little spin her yesterday and I'm sure he'll offer a little review too ..... (Despite the new slipping clutch - grrrr!)

Definitely does handle like a go-kart, I was hugely impressed. Feels "planted" and like it's on rails ! I would even go so far as to say that it's, (almost), comparable with the handling of wanner69's RS250, with one major exception, the brakes ! The RS' 4-pot Brembos are absolutely superb !

One point, though, Karlos, you need some decent rubber & a new clutch, pdq !

heads up for anyone planning to fit one of these themselves. THE 8MM CAP SCREW THAT COMES WITH THE KIT IS NOT LONG ENOUGH. i had to use m8x25mm hex bolts instead.

Chris, apologies for my ignorance, but what's the deal with the adjustable droplinks that Whiteline sell?

Means when you go very low you can shorten the drop link to rotate the ARB away from other components

Ah...Thanks. How low is low enough to require adjustable drop links?

TBH I have no clue as I only run 15mm Eibachs.

2 friends run coils without these links but tbh with spacers etc to clear BBKs you can't go too low any where before you get arch contact. Which is deter mental to handling and potentially dangerous etc.

Plenty people on here with 30mm springs on std droplinks and you can' go much lower day to day

Hi all

I also have the rear ARB fitted on my fn2 and instantly notice the difference. Had it put on in the bad weather at end of Jan.

Today is the first day iv had a chance to test it properly on roundabouts in nice warm weather. Puts a big on my face.

Like others mentioned, rear feels much more planted doesn't feel like rear trying to catch up when going round bends or roundabouts and when coming off them.

For anyone thinking of it I highly recommend it. Just need to get coilovers, front ARB, FRS and few other goodies to sort handling completely.

Thanks to the guys at ABP great job and was good to see everyone.

Glad you're happy with the improvements it's made. They really are a great bit of kit and a perfect upgrade and accompanyment to any FRS.

hi, my arb keeps moving it has been installed and checked at a highly reputable garage who say it needs welding, ideas on how to fix this as the latter is not a option?
thanks

The rear bar will never need welding! Do you know which part of the kit is moving?

I can only imagine it may be the 'C' clamps that hold the bar to the rear axle. If this is correct, it may be that the garage who has installed the bar hasn't put the clamps far enough apart or tightened them up enough.

Pictures would help, or if you like give me a call today before 3pm on 01270 567177

Tried fitting mine today but no joy! I only had it on axle stands and being a big guy with shovel like hands I couldn't get enough purchase on the clamp to get the bolts on. The clamp itself is an extremely tight fit over the bracket and the anti roll bar bracket so I'll just need to get a garage to do it as they'll have use of a lift.

Wouldn't recommend trying yourself unless you can get the car pretty high on the stands and have a helper with small digits!
