There's quite a few options in Europe that have stock but a quick search in the US turned a bit of a blank.

RCLAB on Facebook has them (in HK).

Upper and Lower HARD arms and all the new parts VTD, RRS, Linear pullrods, short front stiffener, alu front stiffener plate (under steering rack). The car is fantastic.

Hi guys, what's the neutral setting to have no toe variation on the rear? 0mm inside and outside?

It depends on the amount of rear caster, in general, at ride height the toe link should be as level as possible, with stock settings that should be ~2mm on the outside, zero inner.

Seems these are now available.

Serpent Model Racing Cars - Product - Roll damper support -7mm carbon 4-X (2)

Short rolldamper support conversion:
The optional slightly shorter rolldamper support plates - 7mm are made for the front rolldamper. They change the motion ratio for the front rolldamper, and thus give a more responsive car under most conditions.

I made some in 7 and 9mm and tested both. I still am undecided on which ones I like better. Going to do back to back testing with 7, 8, and 9mm this weekend.
