What motor class are you running?
Stock Xi is good with -3 toe, 5.75 front and 6.0 springs rear. I run in similar conditions with 17.5 boosted. On my track i needed a little more high speed steering, so I run shorter upper links and a .5 or no shim under the inner upper camber link on the rear. Also no sway bars for me, but that's a preference thing. Rear diff oil is 80wt for me at the moment, but I have run as low as 40wt. I now run a diff in the front too with 300000wt, feels more consistent then the spool. 30wt 2 hole or 40wt 3 hole for shocks all round.
The DH upgrades are worth it. I noticed a huge improvement of overall grip straight away. More flex through the whole car. You could possibly split the lower front/rear suspension mounts on the XI, I've been thinking about trying it on my hybrid. Then add the DH upper deck and it would be pretty similar to the DH overall.
