Default direct drive ratio

i know gear ratios have been beat to death, but i am having a problem... i have a direc drive 2wd car(f103gt) and am into F1 racing. i was running a 3.8 D/R but it was a cow, even with the speed passion 3300kv! i bumped up to 5.16 and it loses traction and is very unstable, i just for some gears in and plan on running a 4.37 but wondered if there were any pointers. i read to loosen up the diff screw so that the diff slips slightly, but from a local race shop, he said i will chew through diffs quickly if i do that.

any pointers? or maybe i loosened it too much... please help!!!

2wd grip is a different beast that 4wd drift!
