I only mean what I say here. I don't follow your comment any further than you knowing where to find a casual thread. Nevertheless, a very helpful and supportive thread!

Hey crashed! Good to hear you shoes are ok still My JP FX is waiting to kick Sow's butt

The front anti-roll bar arms are still stiff I ran with them on Monday and after the run they still bind.
I had to back out the screw which attaches the anti-roll bar arms to the suspension arms in order to reduce the binding, but now the lower suspension arms move about on the metal rod
I'm thinking of dumping the alu arms and going back to the plastic ones - certainly wasn't the best hop-up I've ever bought

Still not getting enough power? Tried changing plug, pipe or perhaps the head shims like what was suggested?

No worries...sow's on his OS. Heard you got everyone to halt exporting FX engines to the UK...

Mine binds badly. I figured that's the reason why my car does all that wheelies over small bumps on straights. It effects handling badly...

Try unscrewing the set screw that holds the hinge pins on the lower arm. You'll be surprised at how free your arms can be but it's a little dodgy though. I'm doing that to my car and so far so good.
