Default Stumped on set up

Rear:
Long upper link
Upper hole on shock tower
Upper hole on hub
3deg camber
5k
30wt
Blue spring

I should have a ton of rear traction, but the rear slides around. I can't get this rc8.2 figured out. Should I go to 3k? Stumped...

Edit: lose traction on power

Hard to say without knowing the rest of the setup and track conditions. However, if you are up on the tower AND the hub, that counter-acts each adjustment. I would go low inner hole on tower and middle hole on hub for length. Sometimes, what feels loose coming off a corner is actually tight and you finally get the car to snap free on corner exit. Lowering the link should free the rear of the car up to rotate throughout the corner and drive straight off. You may want to move your hub forward on the rear arm to transfer weight to the rear quicker on acceleration. 554 with diffs or 553 if really tight track.
