i recently bought the Ibanez RG-1570 and the whammy bar is super "stiff" and very hard to push down, and the guitar keeps retuning itself when i use it, any ideas? or maybe the whammy is supposed to be like that.. i heard somewhere it's like made for dive bombs and stuff, do you know anything about that( in that case) is it possible to someway make it not that stiff except taking it out?

Take out the ZPS3.

Keeps retuning itself? The ZPS is there to stabilize the bridge and definitely makes it more stiff than the edge pro used in older 1570s. Take it out if you want to have more 'feel'.
