    I'm using the JIMFAB bars now, and had the Z10s before... pretty happy with both of them. The JIMFABs have better geometry, but they don't drive any different than the Z10s. Both are very streetable.

    I've got them on my car, but my car hasn't been on the floor yet. :blink: :angry:

    I'll get to drive on them eventually, but I've HEARD on the ED chassis, they KICK F'ING ASS.

    They're on a 95 sedan, and I don't experience any more understeer in corners because of the bars.

    Do they reduce, or eliminate wheel hop completely? (jim vs. z10)

    They just about eliminate it, but of course your strut and bushing condition will play a factor in determining how much wheel hop you have left. Right now, with brand new shocks, bushings, and the JIMFAB bars, I have zero wheel hop.
