Look for at least 200oz on steering and 100oz or more for throttle.

When going into tight corners it tends to understreer. What can I do to help counter this?

Use the 0 degree caster blocks or stiffen the rear set to plant the front.

Suggestion

Increase the front drop (that worked for me)
go thicker on front oil (Still not tested but i wil put one million on front)

that's my 2 cent

Sounds as though you have an imbalance in the front and rear roll angles of the car.

About to build a new cobra gt. Should I build it with the kit setup or is there a better setup starting point?

Is there much of a change needed in the setup when going from GRP tyres to Sweeps? LHS has gotten into the powers that be at the club and we have to run only tyres that they sell to have points counted.

The tire diameter will affect ride height and camber and toe. You'll need to reset those.
