Between short and long links? Yes. Short links make the car more responsive, and have more Camber gain. Generally they feel like you have more grip. You will also need the am19 plate for the rear for short camber links, and the front as well if you do not have a ffg (ffg geabox has short link mounts built in)

with the dampers in the kit locations, all of them will have softer bump than rebound. The reverse asymmetric hanulec is talking about requires swapping the rear dampers left and right and running asymmetric, and then the bump will be stiffer than the rebound.
Reverse asymmetric in the rear is good for making grip in low grip situations, it can help lock the car down.

If you swap the dampers left to right and change the screw, it makes the compression harder and rebound softer.

Mike what would you suggest for a bumpy carpet track?

I actually experienced this at the US indoor champs this year. Very bumpy. What I did was run prodive and prosquat, ie angle the arms like you would with an offroad car. I didnt want to make the damping soft, in fact I made it harder because if you move the d6 dampers quickly the fluid can shear and you lose damping. The dive and squat makes more weight trasnfer go thru the shocks instead of the chassis which helped with bumps. I dont know if hanulec ever posted my setup from that race, if not pm me your email and I can send it to you.

It is NOT

A700 Evo comes with A700-C01L
A700 Evo IIC comes with A700-C01L2 (which I hear just got manufactured this past week)

I need ST07. old style outdrive. I have one that has started to crack. Can anyone check for a spare that you can sell to me?

Default Short front camber links?

Will shorter front camber links give me more initial turn in? I have my USGT car running well but I am looking to get the car to turn in a tighter line. I am close to the car being GREAT for ME but I would like to run LESS drag brake so the car can roll through the corners faster. I will be running them at the VTA Carpet Nationals this weekend and hope to do well. Any help will be appreciated.

Tony- short links will make the car overall more aggressive.

Without short links-- options for more turn in include-
1. Toe out
2. Moving steering rack back
3. Decrease front inner camberlink ball stud height
4. Slightly less front dampening
5. Thicker front bar
