I was looking at this tonight. The stiffness on the front appears to be coming from the front anti-roll plate- under the A-arms. I have put O-rings on the 2 screws going into the gearbox....this improved things a little....alternatively you can cut this piece or not install.....but until spares are available I am not going to play!!!!

Oh, I see, I dont think that lexan pcs there is a good idea except it make the front end a bit stable as the arms are flexi.

That piece looks like lexan.....but I suspect it is fibreglass!!! when you file it it gives off the same fibres!!.......maybe lexan would be better!!!!
