The first thing it comes to my mine, is increase the Front Anti-roll Bar.
I am using the stock 2.5mm in front, my question is:
Should I used the same 2.5mm, and just harden the set up of this Anti-Roll Bar, or change it, to 2.8mm.

My Set Up is:
Front Diff 100,000
Rear Diff 30,000
Front Spring RED
Rear Spring BLUE (Long)
Front tire 37 60mm
Rear tire 40 62mm
Front Camber 1.5
Rear Camber 3.0
Thanks

I'd go with nitrudude's suggestion for a softer rear bar (or the inner holes on the arm if you're outside)
Then, go to the lowest rear shock mounting hole if you are the default second hole from bottom.
A mm less caster can do amazing things sometimes
Without seeing the entire setup sheet it is a bit hard to be more specific.

Probably not the correct direction since he wants more rear end grip off the corner. More rear toe, lay shock down, lower rear roll centers, soften shock oil, softer rear spring, wheel base change or softer rear diff oil.... is more in the direction he is asking for..

well...it works for me. in fact i'm running 80k rear diff. with rear long pink springs!
i feel that if you 'soften' the rear too much, you'll lose out of corner 'punch' and car feels 'slugglish' in turning. well that's just me.

my opinion: if the rear is 'settled' enough, you'll actually gain grip.

which grease would you recommend for diff orings, so as to provide a good seal? also for the silicone rings in rccx absorbers?
