I would run 2 degrees of rear camber and increase front droop by 1 mm. the camber will help maximize the tire contact patch and the increase in front droop will allow more weight to transfer to the rear when you accelerate out of the turn. the weight shift will help keep the rear planted. You could also try a slightly softer spring in the rear as well. try this and let us know how it works.

On carpet I am using the stiffest (5 stripe) on the front and softest (2 stripe) on the rear. for asphalt I go 4 stripe up front and 3 stripe in the rear.

1mm & 2mm washers will be a good starting point as this will give a few options eg 1+2mm washer = 3 mm, 1+1mm = 2mm. Probably could even grab some 3mm & 0.5 mm washers for added options.
Changing the height of the washers under the ball screws will change the roll center of the car.

You don't need to change the ball ends on your turnbuckles if that's what you're asking about.

Cheers
Rob.

To the front of course, one will have "4R" - for the right hand side, the other will have "4L" - for the left hand side.
