I have been testing and testing and testing my 12r5 with lipo on med bite carpet and have found some success. With the lack of info on LiPo set ups I thought I might get the ball rolling by posting what I have found works for me in 17.5 and 13.5 1 cell. I'd love to hear what anyone else has experienced.
.20 BMI springs(~.18 AE equivalent) only use 2 shims on top of kingpin.
0 reactive castor
2 mm of spacers between upper arm mount and bulkhead (effectively lengthening the upper arm)
both spacers to the back for static castor ~6-7*?

3 mm droop spacer in center shock (1 mm shorter than std)
#2 shock mount (1=bottom, 4=top)
30 wt ae oil in center shock
