If I want any more droop I will have to go to the standard shock tower in the rear.
I can see what you are saying, but I feel if you need this much droop you should look elsewhere for some solutions.

What is the handling problem you are trying to rectify?

Broke a front belt while in 2nd and fell back to 4th, luckily there was only about a minute to go in the race when it broke. I'd like a little help with set-up suggestions, currently this is what I'm running:

Tires: 40F/35R it's still not too hot here and the track is not permanent
ride ht: 5.5F/6.0R
toe: +1 F/0 R
camber: 0/0

droop, I could use some help with, don't have any clue here

...go ahead and abuse me, but then a little help would be appreciated..thanks
Very difficult to help based on the info. What is the car doing that you do not like? Generally the camber at 0 is probably not good with foam tires. Also ride height seems a little high.

Like to improve turn in, off power and turn exit on power....currently too much push
Shock oil is too stiff for those springs. I would go with no more than 50wt in general with the blacks. General rule only of course.

To get better turn in go stiffer front swaybar, one way front diff, or more caster for high speed turn in.

Generally the black springs in my opinion are too soft for foam tires except for lowish grip tracks. Try stiffening the car up evenly all around for more response.

Using 40 front and 35 rear will induce push. Try 37 or 40s on rear.

Driving style and setup of car will dictate the type of rear droop which would benefit the car handling.

A car equipped with a front diff usually requires a lot of steering. Beginners will find it OK but experienced drivers will find it a little lacking. So more weight transfer to the front off power is nice to have. You achieve this by having a lot of rear droop.

With a one way, off power steering is generally more than normal drivers would require and generally, you want to take out off power oversteer in the car. You do it by limiting the rear droop to prevent weight transfer from the rear to the front. Of course too little droop will make the rear end lift up and cause your rear end to loose traction. Too much is always no good. Everything needs to be just enough.
This is generally good advice, but I would say on the V1RR you should look at tires and then springs first. Droop is more fine tuning.

This is a darn good setup, but is pretty aggressive as well. Try slightly softer rear springs if it is too much.

Dunno about a website. I used their shafts for around 9 months and they wore badly enough around the bearings to become useless. Very light however.
