Does anyone have any experience with Arena products? Is their carbon and workmanship any good?

Adding the +.75 to the rear raising the roll center. Will that give more rear grip? Looking for more rear grip less steering.

HRC i feel takes away rear traction but on highgrip tracks where rear traction is not an issue i feel HRC just makes the car drive more square

Agreed, try 3* rear toe, 0* front and use the "0" suspension holders. What springs and swaybars?

Seems to calm the front down a bit. Not so fast at the front.

Medium rear uprights may help also. Is the rear loose, or the front got to much traction? Droop settings? Try longer rear links like middle hole to start with.
