generally you want the heavier fluid in the front. lighter fluid in the front makes the car "hook" sometimes. i use 60/55 since i run on a very smooth track with two small jumps.

it varies from car to car but a good starting point is 1.4mm pistons all around with 40wt. in the front and 30wt. in the rear, best thing you could do is find a pros setup for your car and start there.
