Try going really soft on the oils if it's a bumpy/rutted track. I was hesitant to do so, but I really like the feel of 3-3-3 so far.

Oil wise I'm using the 6 hole conical pistons running 27.5 wt all around. It's a little too stiff still, I'm going to drill the pistons out, not sure to what yet.

I'm running the 6 hole conical drilled front 1.4/ 40wt and rear 1.2/ 27.5 wt. It feels pretty good. The conical pistons need to be drilled they come 1.1

Also, when you pull your shocks make sure that your arms are getting full travel/full droop. The travel of the arms is very sensitive in relation to the ball end placement on the sway bars.

I found that out the hard way.

I'm a half and half guy with the braces. Front plastic and rear aluminum. I haven't stepped away from the 553 in the diffs and I've been on rutted to all hell tracks and smooth tracks.

the only thing I seem to change at the track anymore is shock oil because I've been really happy with my setup as far as roll centers and etc.

And not to toot my own horn, which I don't know how i'd do that, but I always get comments about how good my car looks around the track. But never seem to get comments about my driving?!?!?! Got to work on that.

The "open" webbed end goes into the shock cap. The closed/smooth side faces the piston/oil.
