Talking O'donnell Z01T setup

Looking for some help with a basic Z01T setup, primarily diffs oil and droop but all is appriciated. I have no starting point and O'donnell doesn't have one either. I'm currently running 7K front, 20K ctr, 5k rear with light swaybars, doesn't seem to be the right combo. Running a JPX .28 w/ a JP1 pipe. The local tracks are fairly short with tight turns, traction is loose.

We ran 10-15-2 diff oils with light sway bar on front and the heaviest one you can find for the rear. Silver ft springs yellow back, rear camber link inside middle on tower. Rear ride height level bones ft slightly below level and full droop.

How did the setup work and for what size track? I'm getting serious front tire balloning and rear weight transfer It also comes out of a corner with the rear wanting to come around like a 360

front tire balloning is to low of a center diff weight oil. Try 20-30k in the center

Run the hubs foward and lower the rear camber link to the lowest hole on the tower. Try 5 in the rear also I run 10-15-5 in mine with a neg 30percent expo seems to help.

Also you could go with 2 alum and 1 carbon shoe. With a .28 and a jp-1 u have a lot of bottom end....
