That's one very hard setup variable to describe when using a ball diff. Unfortunately, the setting is not like the NTC3 where it mentions to turn out how many rounds after tightening.
Set it reasonably loose. Front slightly tighter than rear. Then put the car on the track and drive. If your car turns too easily, tighten up the diffs. Front being tighter than the rear. Put them on the track until you find that you loose traction. Then loosen it. Depends from track to track. Tighter diffs for high traction and loose diff for low traction.
The first time I held Michael Salven's 710, I could not fathom how he could drive with the rear diff set as hard as a solid axle !
This with +1 rear toe in. I guess it depends very much on car setup and driver. Usually, a loose rear is easier to drive.
