Chassis flex is not good for high grip tracks. The car will traction roll more easily. It is better for low grip scenarios.

In my experience...

... a thicker front oil gives you a quicker turn-in response and makes the car feel loose in the middle especially when you start to apply power
Here is the summary from my app for the 6 different handling scenarios
that I used to discuss each setup change throughout the app. The way to read this is if your car has that handling scenario, then make the adjustments listed below it.
Note: I validated the adjustments below based on material I read, authored by Swift Engineering Inc, race car engineer Neil Roberts.
Loose Off Power
Increase front bump and rebound Dampening and decrease rear bump and rebound dampening.
Loose On Power
decrease front bump and rebound dampening and increase bump and rebound rear dampening.
Loose Neutral Power
Push Off Power
Decrease front bump and rebound dampening and increase rear bump and rebound dampening.
Push On Power
Increase front bump and rebound dampening and decrease rear bump and rebound dampening.
Push Neutral Power

2: going to 3 mm shims on the inner camberlink, and leaving the 2mm shim at the c-hub camberlink ? And no adjustment to the rear. ?
3: I am running 2K in the geardiff.
Thanks again, and I have bought your setup app, and trying to get it to sink in
Just wondering, I didn't think I saw you using the terms like understeer and oversteering in the app. Is this similar to push and loose as terms you use ?
yes that is correct. Try 1.5k rear gear diff oil.

Example: raise the suspension arms by put shims below the suspension blocks.
Thanks in advance.
Yes it will give you more lateral grip, but the car will also feel less smooth in its transitions.
