I would start with kit setups for both cars and go from there.

Make sure and then recheck that the cars are "square" and everything is working as it should.
Camber, droop, ride height, everything.
The smallest thing not moving freely or out of balance can cause endless hours of frustration.

My 2 cents.
Dave.

Default TC5R

I ran Keven Hebert's IIC setup on my TC5R at Minnreg a few months back and the car was great in 13.5. I wasn't but the car was. Try that as a starting point if you are running rubber.
