Would like very much to try exactly the options you just went through.
Like most other kits, there are certain trends that you see in the setups that sometimes dictates characteristics like common springs, roll centers, camber positions and bodies.... I think it is early in this cars life to see those trends.
In most of the setups I am not seeing a lot of variation in any use of sway bars or big roll centers changes. As the only A700 I have seen in person is Steens it is hard to get perspective on what a good behaving A700 looks like. Steens car looked phenomenal. I have watched a few really good drivers take my car out for a test drive. In the hands of other, all things relative of course - the car looks really aggressive (good!), reactive and nimble.
It will be good once we see more owners provide feedback on their experiences.
Many of the characteristics that I liked in other cars are starting to show up well in this car. They aren't transferable in specific measurements, geometries or quantities - but they can get worked into the unique ways that the car reproduces the performance in its own implementation.
A tip that I picked up from the guys that used run the Alex Baracuda sedan - use White Lightning Clean or Finish Line Ceramic Wax Lube on the input/ring gears. Reduces friction, noise and makes the drivetrain really smooth. Apply thin coat, let dry and reapply. Race/practice with the car and reapply. It doesnt need a lot.
