Default Need Opinions on Tuning My NTC3! opinions on my clutch/suspenion set up needed

Sup everyone

Need some opinions on tuning my NTC3.

I mainly do parkng lot racing with friends so need some opinions for that.

I am having some lil problems with the back tending to swing out.
Dunno if it's my finger being itchy at times or just my set up?
The car has a hard time with traction on black tops but has good grip on textured lots

Here is a run down on my set up.
please let me know what i should improve on to make her handle better as far as shock oil and spring choice ball diff settings or whatever u pro's rec.

25-lbs. Copper springs in front running 70-wt. oil
22-lbs. Red springs in rear running 60-wt. oil
Blade type sway bar in front w/blades facing up
Rear anti-roll bar
Droop set at "4" in front & "3"-rear (factory rec.)
Camber set @ 2-degree's front & rear (factory rec.)
Toe set @ 0-degree's in front & 2-degree's in the rear (factory rec)
Caster set @ 9-degree's in front (2-clips/factory rec.)
Ride height is @ 5.5mm (factory setting)
Rear V.2 suspension upgrade
APS Take Off 22-compound rubber tires

MUGEN MT.12 turbo SG crank motor
AE Factory Team large foam/large bore air filter (anything better?)
AE Factory Team gearing (54/21 1st & 48/27 2nd)
AE Factory Team Lightweight clutch bell
AE Factory Team 3-shoe flywheel
AE stiffer clutch springs
Ball diff in front set @ 1/4-turn in front (factory rec.)
Ball diff in rear set @ 1/2-turn in rear (factory rec.)
K-FACTORY hard coated front input cup
K-FACTORY hard coated brake cup

As far as the clutch goes i have upgraded to th 3 shoe set up and i bought the Associated stiffer clutch springs for it but i was going through my manual and saw in there that they only rec. using the stiffer clutch springs for low powered motors and the stock ones for high power motors.
Is my MUGEN motor considered low power or high power?
I know this motor is pretty damn fast (1.15-HP) so im assuming it's high power?
But back to the clutch springs.....should i chnge them back to the stock ones or just keep the stiffer ones in there?

Sorry for the very long post everyone but im just trying to find out help to improve my car.
Let me know if left any other information out.
