I think a bit of heat on the stocker will do just fine

I also run 0 degrees of Anti Squat, however I will run a little bit if the car starts to wheely. it helps to give the car a little less rear traction as it decreases the amount of weight transfer to the rear of the car. It can also make the car jump a little farther and/or steer a little more due to less rear traction.

I'll run 3 degrees in rear motor but I'd never try to go with more. There are just too many other bad things going on with the suspension geometry.

0 degrees is fine if you have a "point and shoot" type driving style, it gives good traction but I cant drive like that so always run anti-squat, it aids maintain cornerspeed, I can apply throttle early before the car is squared up around the corner as it stops the front wheels becoming light and the car washing out wide. Also helps over bumps.

more off power steering.

took the droop screws out, but the cvd's disagree haha

I've also seen on one of the factory guys had a prototype forward rear pivot block that seemed to give more than 3 degrees.

I'm not a point and shoot driver. 0 degrees is almost mandatory when running MM3 and somewhat so for MM4.

Antisquat isn't a steering aid and shouldn't be treated as such. Camber links, caster, and weight distribution are.

I believe you are gaining "off power steering" because with more antisquat you are loosing "off power rear traction" giving the feeling of gaining steering.
I use antisquat to fine tune the car depending on the track. On a smooth high grip I may add some antisquat. If the track is bumpy I want 0 antisquat so the shocks will do what they are suppose to do. As a rule I always start with 0 antisquat and the majority of the time I run 0 as I prefer what I call a neutral feel in the car. Also I always run 0 in a MM configuration. That's my $.02

I don't know about you, but I ALWAYS want the shocks to do what they are supposed to do. Why have them otherwise?

Of course everyone wants the shocks to work. What I'm saying is running a lot of anti-squat on a bumpy track causes the rear suspension to stiffen up onpower so it does not absorb the bumps as well.

Really? The shocks front and rear definitely feel softer then that and the diff feels like 1000cst
