Yes. The soft springs have an "S" on the spring itself.

@JayBee

There is no real other effect. Just that the angle of the toe in link will change. You should always adjust the shims so you not change the "bumpsteer" in rear. Also the position of the stud ball from the camber link will be slightly different, but you will not feel any difference here, thats it

Is it true that Awesomatix would release a belt drive car? Saw image of that car, but don't know how to post it here...

It is not true. Many pieces/parts might have existed in the past.
The 2014 car will be shaft driven... Overall just an evolution of the current cars.

No, there will ne no belt drive car in the near future! All current existing belt cars are self made, most time by Steen Graversen.

Freddy,

You mentioned the bumpsteer in the rear, is there a certain way the link should be? So do we want to keep it level if we are adjusting wheelbase? Also what is the norm for the steering link, level as well?

Just shim until rear toe stays constant while you compress the car while on (Hudy style) setup stands.

Possibly useful, likely not applicable and probably overkill post I sent many moons ago.

It appears this is for the original kit ( not the L and EX kits )

The inner pickup points for the REAR toe link have changed location in the L/EX kits so the geometry should have changed too.( The inner rear toe link is non adjustable and makes the link length longer than in the original kit. Now the ball stud screws directly in the bulkhead ).

Still, a great reference, not totally applicable but still very useful. Thanks Ethan!

Im pretty sure that is the measurement of the arm off of the flat board.
