I think the first thing I am going to try next is dropping my ride height some. I also have a set of medium front tires to try instead of the soft.
Definitely try the medium fronts. Also, 60wt is pretty high in the side damper for rubber. I went to 35wt oil when I switched to rubbers on carpet from 50wt. Maybe go to 1* camber as well, lube the kingpins with something like 30K diff oil. The lube on the kingpins will make the traction roll worse if you go too hard however.
YOu might want to try a black spring on the front, but I would only do that if you feel the car diving onto the outside front. If not, the gold is probably ok, since too hard a spring will make your car traction roll easier as well.
I would glue the sidewalls first, as it is the simplest and fastest thing to do.
