Hopefully someone can correct me if I’m wrong but I have just finished tuning a Sonic 2 using the long mixer test. Once you tune using the long mixer test, the short mixer test is irrelevant as the mixer is now adjusted to take into account of bridle shrinkage.
There is no long mixer test on the Sonic 2 unless it’s been modified somehow.
You can long mixer test any kite if you have a line plan.

Yes like I said with some modifications. Get the line plans out, mark the appropriate bridles. Usually the problems with the Sonic2 have to do with Z shrinkage. Also that wing likes B and C a little shorter for stability.
