Default 1/8th Scale Buggy on a Asphalt track

Does anyone run 1/8th scale buggy classes on a closed parking lot/asphalt track?

A local hobby store is setting one up for summer and I want to put my Losi 8ight e 3.0 on it. It's still used as a parking lot by a small business during the week and on Saturday and Sunday is blown/swept off and the track is setup. so it's not the cleanest surface in the world but it will be free of any large debris. No jumps. My question is what setup are you guys running? Diff oil weight, shock fluid weight etc.

The 1/8 GT class is basically a buggy chassis on road. You want to reduce the droop a lot and of course the ride height. Shock and diff fluid can take a look at the serpent cobra gt setups as an example
