Questions?? GT10 Handling & Setup

OK, I now have an Associated RC10R5.
Built to kit setup then ran it for the first time on Sunday at Rug Racers.
I was amazed at the turning ability but had serious and almost instantaneous grip roll on a few corners, which everyone commented/laughed about .

I know I need to reduce the tyre diameter (My Jaco Lilacs are straight out of their packet), but what else should I be looking at.
Does anyone have any general setup tips for GT10's?

How do I know what shock oil to use in the centre and side shocks and how do you choose/tune the centre spring?

Any help greatly appreciated.

I have also posted the same on a UK forum, but I want help and advice from as many people as necessary.

Thanks
Skiddins

Your rolling issue is probably being caused from the ride height, which is going to be too high and limited on the car with Jaco tyres right out of the package. You need to cut the tyres down to 56-57mm, with a right height of no more than 5mm.

Can the 'few mm' make that much difference?

I have shimmed the drivetrain to take the actual chassis down as low as possible, but I know it still isn't enough.
