Default tuning suggestions for a T3 ??

I'm back into R/C after 15 yrs out. i have a T3 and it seems to work well on our local outdoor track. If I could have one thing different it would be a little less steering and more rear grip. I have changed the set up several times and here's what i have

green springs all around
#2 piston in front with 30 wt oil
o deg camber
0 deg toe-in
camber link set to shortest distance

rear shocks green springs
#3 pistons with 40 wt oil ( trying to slow the rear susp down to plant the tires)
slightly lower than lever dog bones
middle hole on top shock tower.

GTB with 13.5 26 pinion, 78 spur

Ifmar step pins on back ( worked a little better than bowtie's)
stock front ribs.

the truck is decent until i try the ss 5800 with same set up , except a 20 pinion)

Any suggestions on a better set up for more rear grip . My main issue are seems to be within the first 2 -3 FT of getting going.

I was reading the anti-sqat info, mine is stock, would it help to increase this ?
