Default New to 1/10th onroad, looking for tips

I started running my Colt 10 from Ofna that I built last year.
I'm looking for tips on shock oil, springs,ride height etc. I'm assuming the rear springs sould be one or 2 steps softer than the front.
I'll be running on clean but unprepped surfaces.
This is where I am now:
2 hole piston/front - - 3hole piston/rear
Same springs and kit shock oil ( I have no clue the oil WT, seemed like 40 or 50 wt) on all 4 corners.
-1.5 front camber, -2rear camber, 2.5 rear toe.
Out of the box the rear is a little loose, So I'll be getting some softer springs for the rear and heavy oil for the front.

How heavy should I go? 90wt/f & 70wt/r or 60 & 50? 4 or 5mm ride height? I'll try some shore 45 on the front, and no more than 5 softer on the rear, does that sound right? Or should a I go a little softer on the unprepped asphalt?
I have a 2mm wedge in front, the rest in the back for Caster, the turn in is good at slow and medium speeds with the throttle on. I havent driven the car real hard yet.

My sales rep @ Ofna made the nats 2 years with his COlt 10, 3rd place 2 years ago in Dallas.
He said 80 wt/f and 60wt /rear for the shock oil.
