One last thing. I would suggest at least 0.5* of front toe out. It helps keep the car more stable on corner entry, and it seems to clean up any slop you might have after your suspention parts become a bit worn.
He only has 2* per side, most AE guys run 3* per side. And toe out in the front gives you more turn in, but less in the middle and out.

I had 0 degree blocks in the front and this made it pretty twitchy on the straights and super hard cornering, I switched to 6 degree blockes and it tamed it down a lot in the straightaway but i dont have the cornering like i would like.. any ideas??

If you are running at Tri state hobbies which I think you are go to RC10.com and use Kevin Hebert last year vegas setup real good place to start for that track just probably end up doing minor changes for your driving style but it will be close.

I would try changing your tyres, I had cs27's at my new club, tried everything but car hooked mid corner: answer talk to the fast guys- I put sweep 32 with my std set up and now I am flying.

I've found I like a harder tyre then tweak the set-up to get turn in,

hope you get sorted out..

which corner, how much and how long? Sometimes it's not necessarily a problem unless it is effecting your speed or handling. You are already running stiffer springs than most so not sure that is the change to make. I had a similar problem, I asked Junior about it and he said his did too and to not worry about it.

its the last corner just before the straightaway, Randy gave me some hints and he is able to hold almost full throttle from the turn around, around the last corner and all the way down the straight.. however i know hes been running for a long time and he has the experiece.. I have been driving the cars for over 12 years now and now i feel like a rookie!!

Randy lies, ha ha.. He is never full throttle for long. He has nitro finger. I will have to take a look next time we race.

Did you check your ride height after we removed the extra weight on the battery side? You may need to adjust that some.
