For me in and my testing-I always use these simple rules and it works for me every time.
TIghter front diff for more on-power steering out of corner. Might hurt turn in somewhat. Car feels very direct, but may be harder to be consistent from corner to corner, but FAST. Yu can jump on throttle sooner.
Looser rear diff for more aggressive turn in, might hurt acceleration (speed out of corner) just a tad.I dont stray away from those principles because thats the extent of my testing and experimenting.
I would always try to start with both diffs the same tightness (Well-as cose as you can feel), tight enough to not slip-but not locked.
If car pushes on exit-tighten that front diff. if car is lazy turning in-loosen rear diff. Or a combination of the two.
ALSO-and I thnk this is the key to testing-dont go battery pack to battery pack when doing this type of changes. RUn 5 or 6 laps-come right in-make the change and go right back out. Try and drive as consistent as you can.
