Thicker front ARB?

Worth it on a track based 197?

i am always a bit confused by the front ARB. a few 106 mates runs without one, and just uber hard springs for hill climbs etc.

Having coilovers fitted, so wondered whether it was worth getting a Clio Racer front ARB at the same time?

anyone care to explain whether they think its worth it?

How much roll reduction would it have do people reckon?
as a general rule, thicker rear ARB will give you less understeer and more oversteer. Cars come from the factory very understeer prone to keep you safe. You'd probably be quicker round a track with a thicker rear ARB.
Softening the front can have a similar effect, but you induce more body roll and the car can feel not so keen on turn in.
