That is rhetorical.
I'm happy to add that the things that I would consider the best tuning options.

To make minor changes, Camber and front toe, are probably the easiest to adjust. Anti-squat too depending on the car you have. Next probably shock mounting positions.

To make more significant changes springs, shock oil and rear toe are the things I would look to adjust first. I feel that the impact rear toe has is often under rated.

However, having said all this I haven't driven TC for a while. I drive a lot of 4WD Offroad, and that's what I'm basing my suggestions on. I did initially come to the thread to find out if the tuning options people most use on a TC were similar to what I would use offroad.

The reason why roll center leads the pack is specifically because it's probably the most unseen adjustment , that controls damping and make the suspension work. If you can understand its effects, you are on your way to the Amain .... I spent years traction rolling before learning its importance, but once learned, wow, Rc racing got alot more enjoyable....

From xray quick reference table, the priority on the front are:
2. Anti rollbar
3. Roll center
4. Toe
5. Caster

On the rear its the same except 4 is differential and 5 is gourney strip
