Thanks in advance!!!!
Im using 7kf, 3kr on medium loose clay and 10kf, 5kr on astroturf.

I run on med-loose clay and I was thinking of trying 3k in the rear also instead of 1k.

I'd suggest you try 10K front 3K Rear, and you can try 3500 and then 4K rear to see how it works.

I run 10/3-3.5 and run on large outdoor tracks and it's awesome. The 21 front block make the car more predictable and for me alleviated the throttle steering I had to do in oder to get the car to turn. A couple of guys with the 410 diff conversions on their 44's also run similar weight fluids but tend to drop to 7K up front depending on weather and track conditions because the car is lighter.

I run the 21* hubs also. I really believe that running the 1k in the rear was way too low causing for over rotation.

Where are your camber links at on the rear hubs?

They are front Caster Blocks, not rear hubs.

Move the hub out to hole number 1. It will reduce the rotation. I do not believe the rotation is coming from the 1k diff though that is low.

The number 1 hole is the short link and will make car to lose traction very abrupt in the apex of the turn.

The biggest thing I found to help with the over rotation with this car is limit rear droop 95-96mm and run sway bars 1.3 front/ 1.5 rear. What are you running now?

The setup sheets I just looked at show number 1 on the outside. Interesting they switched the number 1and 3 holes between the v3 and v4 setup sheets.

I was working on that at the track. I went from 105 in the rear to 100 and in the front I went from 90 to about 86. I think I will take some more out.

sway bars Front AND rear???? Do you mind elaborating? Seems like most times you would want to run them on one or the other.

Are we measuring droop from the top shock screw to the bottom shock screw? this is essentially shortening the shock?
