Not that I know of, but I feel like it's probably most similar to tracking on H&R, with shorter and stiffer but progressive springs.

For the money though, I'd just get a Ground Control kit. More for your money IF you're tracking, since you get linear springs, camber adjustment in the negative 3's and sway bar end links to eliminate pre-load on your sway bars. I hear Jay at Ground Control is very flexible with spring choice and rates, and is knowledgeable about his recommendations.

The ground control kit is a more complete and capable setup for track usage in comparison to the KW sleeve kit. More adjustment and better springs.

It is also cheaper than the KW setup.
