I also just ran kit setup, I tend to like to drive it first off as they suggest and then build setups off that

I run on a med/low too, I also have probs with my car is loose in the rear end on power.
I run a 17.5 boosted, I have tried Jilles and Marcs and I still have some problems with the rear end

Try Kiyo's Wangan setup, it has a narrow rear end and upright shocks so lot of rear grip. I also found the original 417 top deck made my car more consistent on power

Ran the 417 this weekend on a pretty smooth parking lot...I ran the pretty standard setup and the car worked very well. I was running Silver HB springs up front and Blue in the rear...In this case the grip was not high enough to support that combo so going forward I am gonna try blue/blue. I think it is always best to have silver, blues, and pinks for outside. HB springs are king outside...period.

See the attached spring chart for spring comparisons and part numbers...

i just picked up a few ride springs, got some reds in there will try them out.
I also grabbed some TRF 1000 diff lube. because I run an R10 Pro with a Reedy 13.5 i followed Jilles esc setup and the things getting some serious wheel spin off the launch. bit like CP Graphix the rear end skips out relatively easily.

I aslo drive Solaris hard tires, so if any one have a setup for a low/med track i will be pleased.

I have tried alot of things, still can seem to beat the loose rear end.
Yesterday I tried some old Lrp ctx tires and the problem was gone, without setup chances.

That would imply that it's your tyres that are the issue. They are after all the most important tuning factor for cars.

Assuming you have to use them look at calming the rear end with a slightly narrower rear width and softer springs. Also you could look at calming the front end steering a little to take the bite out of the corner rotation.

The LRP tires fade off very quickly.
Use the Sorex 28R or 24R instead.
Even better grip and last longer with same grip level.

take some camber out, it will give you more forward bite.
