I know, but I guess when mrgsr said sometimes "the track is just below good", that to me would suggest that it is often low-traction. And if everyone else is running 40s, to me that would probably mean medium traction. Everyone has a different opinion on what traction is like on some club racing tracks. Like you mentioned, he may even be running a one-way on a really tight and small track.

What motor are you running? You mentioned on-power rear traction. You may need to feather you trigger finger a little or loosen the clutch spring nut. I had this problem with my V-One and a new Sirio Evo 3. The motor has so much low-end torque compared to my older Sirio, that it was very easy to break the rear end loose on power. I went from 7k to 5k in the rear diff, loosen the clutch, and richened the low-end 1hr. All was better. But I still needed to adjust my driving style more than anything. It's better to manage the power than be over powered.
I would suggest to try to go back to the stock RR settings, except for lighter rear diff oil and 38 shore all around (if you were running 35s in the rear, they wear way faster than the fronts which will also make the rear end swing out on power). And start testing from there.
Then mess with the droop. Since the foams are always changing size, I usually measure droop over ride height during qualifiers and try different settings 0.5mm at a time (I find that 2 to 2.5mm of droop over ride height is best for any situation F & R). Then I go with the best setting for the Main. You may want to try running more rear toe-in. One change at a time so you'll learn what's best for your driving style.
