As Colin said,

I had my Meister Coilovers fitted yesterday and asked the guy to put on the RARB as well but after we tried it out with just the coilovers and got the setup spot on and the FRSU the RARB wouldn't have given any benefits to my set up. It depends what your looking for and if you track the car.

Definately! The Whiteline bar stops the flex in the rear beam, corner to corner. So when you turn in sharply, and the suspension (coilovers) take the load of the car and chassis, the rear beam flexes slightly and unsettles the rear end. The roll bar stops the flex, keeps the back end stiff and settled and allows you to take the corners much quicker and in a more stable fashion.

In short, fitted on their hardest setting, they are amazing. Best bang for buck after an FRS.

While i understand the coilovers give a huge improvement in handling over stock suspension, i would challenge anyone to drive a car (with any suspension fitted) without a roll bar, and then another with one fitted and tell me there was no difference. The benfits it gives aren't linked to the benefits you get by fitting suspension.

Do you still have these in stock, and if so do you still have a fair few left? Herd the factory where these are made has closed in Korea due to the troubles and will be made in a few months in the USA.

We have 8 in stock with more on the way to us.

I understand that the FN2 kits are currently manufactured in Australia but I know a lot of the kits production are switching to USA....

Ok sweet I will place an order in a few weeks with you. Not sure about the front arb, but wary of over stiffening the front end. What else do you recommend the sharpen the turning for track?going to try reducing the toe in and camber, anything else?

I run the RARB along with coilovers and I noticed a difference, feels a lot better on bends and roundabouts. Also as ABP have said it makes the rear beam very rigid, before fitting if i jacked the rear up only the side being jacked up lifted off the floor now both wheels lift off.

I've not tried the front ARB as ABP said the difference wasn't as noticeable as the rear.

I was talking to Leepie at donington on Sunday and he's just fitted the front and rear bars and his lap times have come down around donington and is very pleased with them and he's running coilovers. Also TDI North time attack car runs both bars with coilovers and they noticed and improvement on track times and were the ones to recommend them to Leepie.

Mate your going the wrong way by reducing toe and camber if you want better sharper cornering on track. Correct camber and toe set up is the whole key to this. I dont want to spam this thread by taking it off topic, so feel free to pm me.

As rich has said it is the biggest bang for buck and the difference I experienced when fitted was significant.

Bit of a thread bump sorry!

Fitted mine this weekend, found it far too stiff on its hardest setting, so backed it off a hole.

It's clunking over bumps in the road and speedbumps which is annoying. Is this normal?

I get no clunking on mine so I'd say there is something wrong with how you've fitted the item. I'd say it much be catching on the rear exhaust box, I had space my brackets further out to clear my Milltek exhaust compared to what the instructions stated.

As Leigh said above the noise you are hearing will be from the brackets hitting your rear silencer. You need to re-position them to the outside of the width of the rear silencer so that they clear when under load. Martelius systems are particulary bad for clearance due to the pipe size.

Once re-positioned it will be silent.

Suprised you find it too stiff on the hardest setting as the improvements are most noticable on that setting...

Ah, I understand now. Thanks guys

Might be worth telling Whiteline that their instructions are rubbish Chris! Haha.

I've got Evo 8 alloys on my FN2, with Yokohama AD08 tyres. So the extra wide track on the rear, coupled with the wider tyres might be the reason I found the rear too stiff?

I herd you can file down the bar a little if you are have clearance problems.
