Default MBX5T SET UP HELP

I have a mbx5t and am having some trouble with handling. It is good most of the way around the track except going in to the corner. It pushes pretty hard. I have no on power steering. Turns good as soon as I am off the power and pulls strait when back on the power out of the turn. I know this car has been around for a while and there must be some pros out there with some good set up for it. This is my basic set up now
F toe out 2
R toe in 1.5
F neg camber 2
R neg camber 2
difs 10-7-3
dog bones level

If some one could post a link to a good set up or has a set up it would help me.

The truck is fast now I just need to get it in to the corner a little faster.
Thanks

I drove a 5t for 2 and a half years and my truck was driving pretty good for my driving style i was runing 5-5-2 with 2 degrees on the front kick up 1 degree of toe out in front and the upper hinge pins in the higher position in the back i was using the -1 3 degrees toe in with the hinge pins in the lower position.

In my opinion what is giving you that push is the 10.000 in the front diff i did try it once with the same result

Thanks for the advice. Why did you stop with the 5t? What type of track were you on with that set up. Ours is short with jumps, longest straight is 90'. Short run up to the triples and doubles.

My preference is the 5000 front, 7000 center and 3000 rear, as that seems to work almost anywhere, I have tried in my son's 5T the 7,000 front and 10,000 center and 3,000 rear and the only real difference I could find was that his had more forward traction, but seemed to push a little more in and out of the corners for my driving style, and tire choice is the biggest part of any set up
