Hoping the new upgraded O-rings will work on his older diff and dampers. Along with P45R and P46R.
Correct original A800 came with D2.1 dampeners.Pititrc has the A800 manual that also states D2.1.

Picked up a used MMCX-A. I think it has the C27MM2 top deck. If I cut the center reinforcing ribs, does it make it exactly like the C27MMS-1? Or is the C27MMS-1 deck made of a softer, thinner carbon altogether?

If you make those cuts, they are extremely similar. The MMS-1 has just the st19, instead of the st55/st19, and the legs are slightly different but if you do not use the brace in the top deck (most setups do not) it is almost negligible.

i have tested both and prefer the non S version cutting it manually the car responses much faster compared to the s version which is a lot easier . Look at the kink on the lower right it is a lot thicker on the non s version.
