One question I had on the setup is where it lists RSD + 3 on the camber link positions. I assume the 3 means a 3mm shim?
By the way there were no durability issues which I wouldn't think there would be but you never know.
Ok, so from there, maybe go down in oil to about 500 or even 500F / 450R for oil. This is the oil set-up I ran in the cold with the TC6.
Typically, I have found I get more exit traction with a sway bar on vs off.
Another thing to do is run lighter rear diff oil.
Are you running a front diff? I would go with the spool. It should generate more traction. I have never found gear diffs to be better than a spool, and I have noticed that most pro drivers only use them in extreme high grip carpet races. I know some people will run them on big sweeping tracks, but my experience on larger tracks is a bit limited.
With Solaris Hard, you are going to be a little limited on traction if the track is dirty, but they are pretty good even when cold outside. We use black can Paragon on them and they hook up pretty well if the track is cleaned and treated. Mediums I have found are only good for a couple of runs before they drop off a lot. It's more of a carpet tire than asphalt. Try hards and they might surprise you in that they are better.
