Here's the full setup for my F103, for low grip carpet on foams. It might not work for others but works very well for me. There might be some tricks in there that might help your setup.
TRG Advance front wing
carbon reinforced front suspension arms.
Front springs Associated 0.20
1mm thick washer between wing and front of suspension arm to increase caster.
Centre posts cut down and replaced with spacers. Camber is set at around 1 degrees, adjust so tyres wear flat and don't cone.
Kimbrough small servo saver with turnbuckles mounted on rear, see image below. Very slight amount of toe out.
15k silicone oil on kingpins for damping
Standard chassis and short top deck.
Standard T-piece, found the rear end tends to hop across the track using the soft T-piece.
1.5mm thick plastic washer at front
O-ring at rear, used to adjust chassis balance.
Tamiya 53173 low friction damper and spring, 30wt oil
Low friction damper disks, silicone grease for damping, amount varied to tune handling.
3Racing alloy motor pod for extra cooling
F103 diff with Tamiya alloy diff parts
Tamiya one piece thrust bearing
Tamiya steel axle
TRG standard rear wing
Ride height is 5mm front of chassis, 6mm rear, with 1mm pod droop.
Fronts - Tamiya HBR medium
Rears - Tamiya HBR soft
Tyre additive - CS High Grip, full width rear inside half fronts, vary to adjust balance.
On high grip tracks I change to Zen Racing 37 shore fronts and 25 shore rears, with front tyre sidewalls superglued to stiffen them and prevent grip rolling, front tyres trued down and rear height adjusted to get down to 3-4mm ride height front and rear. Add more grease in damper disks and adjust rear T-piece screw to get the balance right.
