Glowster,

Run Toso's exact setup from the nats first. Fine tune it from there. Your setup seems...strange to say the least. First off, run the right tire setup...cyan/magenta. The softer sidewall of the magenta folds over and has less side bite. Second, NEVER run positive camber, always negative (tires leaning in). Everything else seems ok, but I would try 26 lb rear springs instead of 22 for club racing. Sauce the rear tires, too. My club racing setup is nearly identical to Toso's nats setup but with less rear toe (1.5) and the 26 lb rear springs.

You can only do that with certain servos. With most servos, including the one syndrome has, the rear of the case will hit the belt if you put the servo behind the posts.
Yup! I run a KO servo and ended up using XRAY servo mounts, it's a tad thinner than the stock ones.... it really doesn't make THAT much different, but heck... I just happen to have an extra pair.

The back end grips so much I am scrubbing infield speed. I only use paragon compound on the fronts...Any suggestions? Running 19 turn....
Well if the wheels are actually tilted out then I would put in 2 deg of negative camber like Brian mentioned. That change alone will fix your problems. The other stuff seems close enough.

I ran my link angled for about 4 months and never had a problem. EPA was only about 4% different which is common. If you want to fix it and you can't swap your servo position, then get an extra pair of the camber link standoffs that are used on the shock tower. It will push it out to a 90 deg angle.

To my knowledge the internal is a 2.0...... unless I've been gearing my car wrong all the time

Pay attention Sushi........ 2:1 means 2 to 1 ratio, which means 2.0 drivetrain.
