    Fast road setup for EP3 - What is really needed?

    On my case the focus is mainly fast road use, a Type R+ of sorts. Just curious about this. I imaggine having a stiffer rear ARB is to help the car rotate better, and you didn't recommend any front ARB. Any reason for that? i will need to replace front ARB anyway due to oxidation/rust.
