They are pretty significant.

The biggest thing is you have to figure out the droop with the new setup if you are using the plastic caster blocks as the spindle isnt raised and since we use the shock to measure droop, droop with the same length shock with the 2 different caster blocks will be very different.
I raced this weekend with the new setup (kinda) I didn't have the 15deg front castor blocks or the rear .5mm hex's. and couldn't achieve the front shock length. but in reading this it makes sense. I guess until I get those parts i'll have to make my own hybrid setup I guess .

I also switched from the "latest Dunford" setup to the Dunford OCRC setup this past weekend, Minus the alum hubs and I didn't have a chance to redo my diffs. but it made a huge difference. had a lot more traction overall and steering. my biggest problem is if I'm not super smooth with throttle application coming out of a corner I get snap oversteer. my diffs are 5-7-2, will changing them to the 7-7-5 help? or do I just need to learn to be smoother getting back on power?

A setup is designed to all go together, so yes, in your case, the diffs would help immensely. The front caster blocks would surely help too as that helps with weight transfer as well. The sway bars are important as well.

do you have a link to get the rear sway bar or is there a known one that fits, I ordered TLR334001 it was listed earlier in the thread and Its for the 22sct so I know that is wrong. I found a 2.3mm 8ight front sway bar in my box but I need a rear 2.2mm

I orderd the swaybar kit for the Ten-T and it comes with a 2.2mm rear bar that's a direct fit.

Having a really hard time with traction rolling. Can't attack corners very fast at all with out traction rolling. I understand Pro4s tend to roll more, but I feel like theres a lot more potential there just gotta get it tuned out. Any suggestions?

Lower your ride height. Lower your body. Try different tires.

Try what Maddog said and also try stiffer sway bars front and rear.

These were originally designed for the TEN-T so I will be working on a stiffer bar set as well.

The front are 2.0, 1.8, 1.6
the rear are 2.2, 2.0, 1.8
