Are lower arm roll center heights adjusted via the arm pivot inserts, or by shimming up the suspension hangers? I couldn't tell from the pics. It may be in the vid, but I don't have speakers to listen.

Shims under the arm mounts. The inserts just change toe in.

I held it in my hands yesterday at the birds... I will say it was very impressive, the quality looks to be very high. The anodizing is a very nice color in person as well. I probably will pick one up!!

I'm assuming the middle lay shaft can be attach to the upper deck or floating upper deck to change the stiffness and the flex of the car?

great looking car,my only concern is the small shims to raise the roll center,surely a weak point, rsd style shims would make more sense as they support the full length of the arm mounts,once raised say 1mm the chassis will have different flex characteristics as the arm mounts are now raised off the chassis with only a small contact patch with the chassis,not knocking it just a small concern,screws ripping through the chassis is not a new thing after all

These will be the optional arm mount shims so the mount will be completely supported.

I am not sure at this point if they will have a separate set for the split blocks, I am sure they will.
