well i think you are missing another important part of the equation -- the amount of pre-load applied to the springs. in the past we have been using two full turns on the 0.020 and 2.5 to 3 full turns on the 0.018 side springs. after setting a base amount of pre-load i'd recommend you check/set tweak.
honestly, i think your best be is to try the different spring and spooge combos yourself. the lighter springs/spooge should cause the car to be easier to drive -- while the heavier stuff - especially the springs - can make the car twitchier.
for the past many months i have been running 0.022 front/0.018 side 3 turn/green spooge/blue center/40wt and have felt at times that the car didn't have enough steering sometimes -- especially in faster motor classes. tonight at horsham after pushing off the track w/ magenta fronts and pink rears in 13.5T boosted in round one, i made some whole sale changes and tried some spooge and springs that i haven't run on the Rev6 yet. i went to 0.020 front/0.022 side 2 turn/blue spooge/blue center/40wt and keep the same tire combos. if anything, the car rotates too hard now.. but i believe i can resolve that by trying less pre-load, or adjusting spooge.
rear traction was falling off at the end of the run so i tried yellow rears but things didn't go so well (although the same suggestion worked for some other folks..). i think i just need to go over the car again --- thankfully there is always next week to try new things.
