note - the setup sheet has been updated. one or two measurements where left off.
AYs shock setup is perfect for 17.5 blinky. Tried it today at middle river in the main outdoors and it helped me be super consistent lap to lap. Would of won if it wasn't for some bad luck.

All nearly the same, they apply in liquid form and quickly evaporate to thin dry lube.

Can you tell us more about the setup, body, tires and surface?

The most dramatic change you can make that will effect steering that you can A/B test is changing the body. Let us know where you are at.

Generally, you can try the following:
1. Reduce front toe out
2. Add negative expo on your tx (-10%)
3. Change bumpsteer (less shims under the steering links on both outside and inside)

If we knew more about your setup we may be able to help more

Also, to make the car less nervous you could try softer spring settings and or softer stabilizer ( anti-roll bars ).
But as others said, I'd try add a bit of expo in the transmitter.
