Default How to handle high speed

What's the best way to set up a car to handle high speed? I was thinking stiffer shocks or higher grade shock oil or both, but I could be wrong.

Good body (mazdaspeed6, ltr-c, etc) to help with downforce.
Sticky rubber.
Correct suspension settings (camber, toe, etc).
High(er) quality radio to avoid interference and increase range.

a really stiff setup could make u traction roll but the only way to truly be prepared is to practice alot and if possible practice with somebody running the same as u

You have to drive consistant to handel and drive at high speeds. Just my .02.
Proper set set up camber, caster, toe, good servo and radio, good tires and the right body.
And a gear diff helps also.

make the back softer than the front by a noticable amount . At very high speeds you want the car to understeer a bit, and be very stable. When braking hard, the rear end must not slide, and when puching out of a corner, the rear shouldnt wash out either. then you can concentrate on point and shoot driving style without worrying your rear end will step out.
